Biopics of famous individuals have a habit of disgorging unpleasant memories from people’s lives. Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming biopic on veteran Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will be no exception.
However, this seems to alarm the ageless Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit, who was once engaged with the actor, and later moved on to marry her husband, doctor Sriram Nene.
The biopic is reported to shed light on different phases of Sanjubaba’s life, which include his love affairs, inconsistencies, successes and failures.
Madhuri, who currently shares two kids with Dr Nene at the US, panicked when she heard about the upcoming biopic where Bollywood heart throb Ranbir Kapoor has been cast to play the lead.
The 48-year-old actress reportedly called Sanjay over the phone and requested him to avoid mentioning their past in the movie.
The two popular actors of the 90s were rumoured to be in deep love and shared sensational on-screen chemistry in films like Khalnayak (1993) and Sajan (1991), both of which eventually turned out to be blockbuster hits.
In 1993, Madhuri dissociated with Dutt when he was arrested on the allegation of buying arms from those involved in a bomb attack in Mumbai.
Khatro Ke Khiladi (1988), Ilaka (1989), Kanun Apna Apna (1989), Thanedar (1990), Sahiba (1993) and Mahaatna (1997) are notable mentions of their other hits together.
