Dharam Uberoi back in Sanjay Dutt’s life?
The actor, who seems to be on a mission to mend fences, has patched up with his ex-manager

We don’t know if his wife Manyata, who has governed his friend-list, is responsible for his new actions, but Sanjay Dutt is on a mending-fences spree. A few days ago at Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday bash at Film City, he kissed and made up with his friend-turned-foe Sanjay Gupta. A few days after that, we heard that Kangna Ranaut landed up at his place for Mata Ki Chowki. Obviously his Rascals co-star had not come uninvited. And the latest is he is back on the same page with his ex-manager Dharam Uberoi, who had joined him when he had a big fight with Sanjay Gupta over financial issues in Shootout At Lokhandwala (2007).
Ram Gopal Varma’s film Department saw an ugly controversy emerging between Dutt and Uberoi, which led to Dutt washing his hands off Uberoi. Dutt’s confidantes warned him about Uberoi’s high-handedness. After Varma lashed out at Uberoi and made several allegations against him, blaming him for the failure of Department, the message was loud and clear to Dutt that the time had come to show the door to Uberoi. Post Department, Dutt made Manyata the CEO of his production house Sanjay Dutt Productions, a post occupied by Uberoi till then. Thereafter, Uberoi and he were not on talking terms.
Talking about the recent patch-up between the two, a source told Mirror, “Dutt and Uberoi frequently text each other these days. They even talk on the phone very often.”
Added the source, “It would be difficult to trace who waved the white flag, but the fact is that Dutt and Oberoi are absolutely fine with each other now. They even address each other as ‘Brother’ in their text messages.”
When asked about this development, Dutt and Uberoi refrained from comment.
Like they say, Bollywood has no permanent friends or enemies. We wonder who will be back in Dutt’s life next? Will it be his ex- Man Friday cum secretary Kalim, who controlled Sanjay’s dates and even money and cars, and had opted out of Dutt’s payroll around early 2009 rather than be disrespected by the actor and his wife?
