New Delhi: On Sunil Dutt's death anniversary today, his actor son Sanjay Dutt shared a throwback photo of himself with his father with a caption that will make you well up. "Wish you could see me as a free man. Love you... Miss you," the 58-year-old actor wrote. Sunil Dutt died on May 25, 2005, one year before Sanjay Dutt completed his jail term in connection with the 1993 Bombay blasts case. Sunil Dutt, one of the most sought-after actors of the Sixties and the Seventies, died of heart attack at 75 at his home in Bandra. Sunil Dutt has several critically acclaimed films to his credit, including Mujhe Jeene Do, Khandan, Yaadein (which he also directed), Milan and Mother India.
