Sanjay Dutt is a sanskari father


The actor feels that sharing a drink with his children or being too friendly with them may make them astray

At a time where parents are trying to be more inclusive in their children’s life, actor Sanjay Dutt believes that being friends which his children will lead them wrong path.

“A child will always be a child for their parents, even if they are 60 years old. Yeh hamare sanskar kehete hai. Agar aap friendly ho gaye toh baccha haath se nikal jayega. You cannot sit and drink with your kids or smoke a cigarette together. Even our movies like Mother India, Dangal and Baahubali, don’t project such images. We have sankari movies and they make so much money,” says Sanjay.

The actor also revealed how his father Sunil Dutt reacted when he caught him smoking in the bathroom. “When my father caught me smoking toh joote pade the. I was hiding in the bathroom and smoking when my father came home early and caught me,” he adds.

The ‘Munna Bhai’ actor will be making a comeback after four years, with a revenge drama ‘Bhoomi’ while Aditi Rao Hydari features as his daughter. The actor was last seen in PK along with Aamir Khan in 2013.

Talking about why the actor made his comeback with this film rather than the popular Munna Bhai franchise the ‘Agneepath’ actor said that as the film script is not ready and Bhoomi’s topic was very close to his heart.

“I chose Bhoomi because of the script. I believe in ‘Beti Padhao Beti Bachao’. Moreover, when I was in jail I heard that there were people locked with me who had raped women, I did not like those people. So, that is what the trigger for this movie was. What will happen if such an incident happens to a small family in a small village?” says the actor.

Although he was not hesitant to face the camera after four years. “I was not hesitant of facing the camera, just became emotional. Moreover, it is not a comeback. I am facing the camera after 4 years only. It has not been so long. Its ok, people like the comeback word,” says Sanjay.

Though back after a break, the actor will not be taking it slow. Sanjay already has an interesting line up. ‘Raja ki tasver’, ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster’, Munna Bhai 3 and a collaboration with Ajay Devgn and Farhan Akhtar.
