Happy birthday, Sanjay Dutt. The actor has been a darling of the masses for over four decades now. The 62-year-old, who made his debut in 1981, has had an eventful life, to say the least. Despite a turbulent past, Sanjay Dutt has emerged stronger with each challenge. And in addition to his stellar performances, fans of the star also get a peek into his life thanks to social media. The actor often posts photos and videos chronicling his life and it would not be wrong to say that the posts are a treat to browse through.
From images with his parents, the iconic Bollywood actors Sunil Dutt and Nargis, to posts with his children and wife, here are some of Sanjay Dutt's most loved family photos to scroll through on his birthday.
1.One of our first picks for this list has to be this vintage photo of the iconic Nargis with a young Sanjay Dutt. They are accompanied by Sanjay Dutt's sisters Priya and Namrata. The same post also features some precious images of Nargis and Sunil Dutt. The pictures were shared on the occasion of Nargis' birth anniversary and the caption said, “There's nobody else like you. Happy Birthday, Maa.”
2.Another image of the mother-son duo is this magical photo of the two. In it, Nargis is seen hugging her son, as Sanjay Dutt looks away from the camera with a grin on his face. He coupled the photo with the caption, “Not a day goes by when I don't miss you, Maa.”
3.Sanjay Dutt may be a mummy's boy but his bond with his father was equally special. And we saw a glimpse of this on Instagram when he shared a throwback photo of himself with his father and wrote, “A parent, an idol, a friend, a mentor - you were everything to me. Love you, Dad, miss you.” The image features Sanjay Dutt looking at his father in awe. A moment to treasure, isn't it?
