Sanjay Dutt Birthday: Shahrukh Khan’s illness had changed Sanjay Dutt’s luck, sister felt that the robbery would drown again

Sanjay Dutt Birthday: Shahrukh Khan’s illness had changed Sanjay Dutt’s luck, sister felt that the robbery would drown again
Sanjay Dutt has been working in the Hindi film industry for almost four decades. In these four decades, he showed his different forms to the audience. Sometimes he ruled the hearts of girls by becoming a lover in films and sometimes scared people by becoming a villain. He also made people laugh by doing comedy and did many such emotional scenes that people got tears in their eyes. If it is said that he has done everything as an actor, played all the characters on screen, then it will not be wrong to say that. But his life was always full of ups and downs. His career was badly affected when he was arrested first for drug addiction and then for possession of illegal weapons in the 1992 Mumbai blasts. He was put behind the bars of the jail. At that time it was assumed that his career was ruined. Then 19 years ago ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ came and it changed everything, but you will be surprised to know that it all changed because of Shahrukh Khan’s illness! Let us know about this interesting story.

Sanjay Dutt came out of jail on bail, but his professional life could not get back on track due to the allegations against him. He tried many times, but failed every time. However, despite all this, there was a spark within him, which was seen in ‘Vaastav’ in 1999 and Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Kaante’ in 2002. However, despite all this, there was something that was incomplete. His bad boy image was still there. He was still knocking in the eyes of the people, but all this suddenly changed when Rajkumar Hirani cast him in ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ in the year 2003. Rajkumar did what the rest of the directors were also doing, he cast Sanju for a goon role, but this ‘gunda’ was cute and this ‘goon’ won everyone’s heart once again .

Sanjay Dutt said yes to the film without reading the script

Interestingly, Sanjay Dutt had not even read the script of this film. He had said yes to it without knowing the story. Now the question arises that why did he do this? So the reason for this was producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra. In a clip released by the production house, Sanjay had said, ‘Vinod is family. He is like a brother to me. At the same time, when Sanjay Dutt’s sister Priya read the script of the film, she felt that her brother was going to do a gangster movie again. He had said, ‘I thought it was some gangster movie and Sanjay is going to play the role of ‘bhai’ in the film. I thought let’s go well, one more film like that.’

Hirani revives Sanju’s career

Sanjay Dutt in Munnabhai MBBS

‘Munnabhai MBBS’ did what no PR could do for Sanjay Dutt. This movie gave him a brand new image. Gave a persona which he flaunted openly. A connection that immediately connected the audience. The ‘Jaadu Ki Jhappi’ from ‘Munna’ and the love and respect he showed for his father (acted by Sunil Dutt) won the hearts of the people. Sanju became ‘Munna’ and ‘Munna’ became Sanju. Hirani’s film revived Sanjay Dutt’s career. It would not be wrong to say that hardly anyone could have played the character of Munna better than Sanju Baba.

People’s attitude changed for Sanjay Dutt
Once during an interview, Sanjay Dutt had admitted that both the Munna Bhai films had changed the perception and thinking of the audience towards him as an actor. This movie completely changed his image. He had said, ‘I will just say that I am very happy with the response that is being received for the film and my character even today. This is a memorable character. Very few actors get to do this. I consider myself lucky that I got this land. Personally in daily life or in career also ‘Munnabhai’ has changed my life and image in many ways.’

There were also allegations against Sanjay-Hirani

However, years later, when the same pair (Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Dutt) came together once again for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic ‘Sanju’, people made many allegations against them. People have even said that an attempt has been made to show Sanjay’s image through this movie. Talking on this, Sanjay while talking to India Today said, ‘I just want to say that Munnabhai was already made and that avatar was already out. I don’t think anyone will spend Rs 30-40 crore to change their image. This is a huge amount. I have told the truth and India has accepted the truth and the box office collection shows it.

Shahrukh Khan was the first choice
Now we are going to tell you another interesting thing that imagine what would have happened if ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ had Shahrukh Khan instead of Sanjay Dutt? Let us tell you that Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra wanted to cast Shahrukh Khan, not Sanjay Dutt in this movie. SRK was his first choice, but due to health issue, King Khan backed out from it and then the film fell in Sanju Baba’s bag.
