By his own admission, Sanjay Dutt has slept with 308 women. But if you think he charmed women courtesy his good looks and wild lifestyle, think again. In an exclusive interview with India Today, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani revealed how Dutt actually conned several women by escorting them to his mother’s fake grave.
"He would start dating a girl and take her to this graveyard. He would say, ’I have brought you here to meet my mother.’ After this unusual meeting, the girl would feel emotionally attached to Sanju. The reality was that the grave was not his mother’s," said Hirani.
Not only would Dutt lie to score emotionally with his girlfriends, he was vindictive as well and couldn’t get over girls who dumped him. "A girl broke up with him. So, Sanjay took his friend’s new car and smashed it into another car parked outside his ex-girlfriend’s house. Later on, Sanju found out that the car he rammed into belonged to his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. Both cars were severely damaged," Hirani recalled.
According to reports, Dutt dated or had a fling with almost every actress of his generation, the generation after him and even some actresses who joined the industry before his era.
The media may have branded Ranbir Kapoor as a modern-day Casanova, but he is no match for the self-professed yesteryear drug and sex addict. In fact, Ranbir revealed that his ’count’ is less than 10, which pales into insignificance when compared to Baba’s 308.
Ranbir also told India Today that he spoke with Dutt every night before the shoot just to get into the skin of the character. "I called Sanjay Dutt the night before every shoot. I wanted to know what was going through his mind when all of these incidents happened with him," said Ranbir.
Ranbir also recalled an incident when Dutt thought his father Sunil Dutt’s head was being burnt by a candle. "This particular time Baba was so high on drugs that he thought a candle was burning Sunil Dutt saab’s head. Sanjay then proceeded to put out the imaginary candle. It was then that Dutt saab got to know that Sanju was completely hooked on to drugs."
