Politics comes first for Sanjay Dutt?
Even as Sanjay Dutt has lost oodles of weight to look every inch the heartthrob we’ve known over the years, he will now have to give more time to his political career, provided the courts clear him to contest the elections. Sanjay is quite confident that the courts will
give him the required go-ahead.
Sources close to the actor say he has already chalked out a coherent and clear-cut election campaign according to which he will be stationed in Lucknow for 45 days. That leaves him absolutely no time for his film assignments, at least for now.
In fact, Sanjay’s production house volunteered to opt out of Ajay Devgan’s comedy All The Best and offered to rope in Anil Kapoor instead.
“But Ajay insisted on Sanjay. He said Sanjay would bring something special to the project,” says a source. “So Sanjay has now allotted dates to Ajay Devgan from May 1. He’s now quickly wrapping up his work in Mumbai and will be in Lucknow from March 15 to the end of April. He’ll return to Mumbai only after elections.”
Meanwhile, wife Manyata will shuttle between Mumbai and Lucknow during the time when Sanjay will be campaigning and contesting elections. The couple is being allotted a house in Lucknow, which Manyata will be stocking up with all the healthy food especially for Sanjay.
And there will be no alcohol since Sanjay has stopped drinking. “From the time Sanjay stopped drinking, his energy level has increased. Now, he is confident of simultaneously managing politics and cinema without skipping a beat,” adds the source.
