Sanjay Dutt in Vaastav



Sanjay Dutt about his Filmfare Best Actor Award for Vaastav


"As I said on the Filmfare Awards night, it's taken me 20 years to win a trophy, Yup, this trophy means the world to me.


Vaastav was special. It took many meetings between Mahesh Manjrekar and me to crack the deal. However, I knew there was potential in the role from day one. Also, Mahesh's enthusiasm was infectuous.


When we ran out of money half-way through the film making, Mahesh was very upset but somehow we pulled through the crises.


Though I was still figuring out the character of Raghu in the first schedule, I got under his skin soon after.


There were several disturbing moments in the film. After I shot the climax with Reema Lagoo, I was a wreck for a few days. That scene drained me completely. The rushes of the scene gave me gooseflesh.


Vaastav made me aware of the vast untapped talent in the movie business. Sanjay Narvekar, who played my best buddy Dedh Footiya, is an amazing actor. So are Reema Lagoo and Shivaji Satham who played my parents. When I saw the kind of dedication these guys put into their work, I gave up all starry nakhras.


For the first time my wardrobe didn't come from Gabbana or some hi-fi designer. Mahesh Manjrekar bought clothes from footpath shops... and he even made me wear his own colourful ganjis and shirts. That's why I looked like an authentic chawlwala.


When shooting was stalled in between, I was dejected. I'd have given up and moved on because I had other projects on hand. But for Mahesh it was a do-or-die situation. Rhea also insisted that we revive Vaastav. She sensed the film's potential. I can't thank her enough for this.


For the first five years of my career, I was just treated as a star son. My physical attributes and my shenanigans made more news than my performances. But Mahesh Bhatt and Naam changes all that.


Naam made me realise that I had what it takes to be an actor. It was the rebirth of Sanjay Dutt. I felt dejected when I didn't win an award for Naam. And I also felt ignored when the same happened during Saajan, Sadak, Khalnayak and Hathyar. I got excellent reviews, but no awards.


I'm glad Vaastav has brought me recognition. Not only has it consolidated my position at the box-office, but it's also given me an incentive to do quality work.


I will never sleepwalk through a film. My learning process won't stop just because I've won an award. I've got to think beyond Vaastav now. My honeymoon with the camera will continue for a long, long time.


There are not many author-backed roles for me. But I'm excited about Mission Kashmir, Kurukshetra and Chal Mere Bhai."


(Filmfare, April 2000)





Sanjay Dutt in Mission Kashmir



Sanjay Dutt about his Zee Premiere Choice Award as Best Actor for Mission Kashmir


"I am very happy to have got this critics' award. To me it is the highest accolade an actor can get. My growth as an actor has got a lot to do with the experiences I've gone through. I think people who want to becone good actors should go to jail (laughs). Such experiences make you grow fast and become mature. Life teaches you best. If you see Saajan, Vaastav and Mission Kashmir, you will find a dramatic change in the level of my performances. When Vinod (Chopra) narrated the story of Mission Kashmir to me I was impressed by the character of Inayat Khan and instantly accepted the film. Inayat was an honest yet complex character, who goes through a series of battering in life and yet comes out a winner.


During the making of the film Vinod would occasionally ask me to write a scene and I would do it. One of them was when I come home after my wife's death. I get down to putting the house in order expecting her to return, then suddenly remember that she is dead. The toughest part in the role was when I go to the bathroom and start crying after young Hrithik asks me whether those were my son's clothes. It was a very tricky scene, the audience would either gone with it or laugh at it."


(Zee Premiere, May 2001)





Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Dutt in Munnabhai M.B.B.S.



Sanjay Dutt about his Star Of The Year Award for Munnabhai M.B.B.S.


"I signed Munnabhai MBBS because I loved the script. And once I started shooting for it, the film grew on me; the scenes, the dialogues, the chemistry and rapport with my co-stars Arshad, Boman, Jimmy and above all, the guidance of Vidhu Vinod Chopra and my director Raju (Rajkumar Hirani). I had such great fun working for the film that I used to look forward to another day of fun and laughter on the sets. This film also gave me an opportunity to face the camera with my Dad for the first time in my career. And that makes this film and this award a very, very special award to me. And last, but certainly not the least, I thank the audience and my fans who voted for me since this award is based on the readers' poll."


(Stardust, March 2004)





Sanjay Dutt in Lage Raho Munnabhai



Sanjay Dutt about his Star Of The Year Award for Lage Raho Munnabhai


"I was completely caught by surprise when it was announced that I have won this award. I'm truly honoured to receive this award, it's very encouraging. Munnabhai is a role that I've really enjoyed playing, especially second time round. The character has become really popular and this validates the fact since it's a readers' choice award. And the fact that I've won this award despite the presence of such strong contenders like Hrithik, Shahrukh and Salman Khan has really taken me by surprise. 'Stardust' is like family to me and I'm really honoured."


(Stardust "The Elite Club", March 2007)



Vidhu Vinod Chopra about Sanjay Dutt's Zee Cine Critics Award for Lage Raho Munnabhai

Sanjay could not be present at the award function in Malaysia so Vinod and Raju Hirani took the award for him, and Vinod in a sudden emerge of emotion exclaimed:


"Sanju, you should have been here, man! This is such a wonderful moment! Of all the awards we received and I got in my whole life, this is the most precious because this man deserved this award for years! (applause) And three cheers for Sanjay Dutt - hipp hipp - hurrah! Got it, man - you deserve it! Thank you everybody!"



Sanjay Dutt about his India Splendour Award for Lage Raho Munnabhai


"It was a great honour for me to enact the role of Munnabhai in 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai'. Doing the film was a learning experience for me. Gandhism is relevant today and will always remain relevant. I believe in non-violence, peace and let people live. Both my mother and father were Gandhians."



Mewa Lal Gupta of the Gandhi Vichar Andolan about honoring Sanjay Dutt for Lage Raho Munnabhai


"We have taken note of the fact that what the entire nation could not do in independent India has been achieved by Sanjay Dutt through his role as Munna Bhai. The extent to which the message of Mahatma Gandhi could be spread through the film was incredible. I am really impressed by the overwhelming impact the film made on the minds of common people. As far as we are concerned, we see enough reason to felicitate the man who deserves praise for effectively spreading the message of the father of the nation. Sanjay has done something that books, visuals, and other laudable efforts could not achieve over the decades."







MTV's Most Stylish Person 2004


"Dutt has been constantly reinventing himself and is always a step ahead of all competition. 'He was the first one to work out for a great physique, to get a tattoo and to get his hair streaked. His constant experimentation with his looks work so well that after a time, it becomes a trend,' says his good friend and director Sanjay Gupta. Even at 45, he can beat the hell out of all the younger guys when it comes to style, which is why Sanjay Dutt was the choice for MTV’s Most Stylish Person (male) for 2004."
