From a small-time actress not so long ago, to the owner of a Rolls Royce, there’s more to Manyata Dutt’s evolution to a lady of the manor than what the eye can see
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 05, 2010)
When Sanjay Dutt gifted his wife Manyata a Rolls Royce earlier this week, all the world was there to hoot for the couple.
Manyata, visibly a new mom of twins, her white and yellow dress stretched over her post-pregnancy belly made a striking picture - the picture of a woman caught in the middle of transformation.
Gone was the shapeless salwar kameez and in its place a cool dress, appropriate shoes, bag and sun glasses. The hair - loose and wavy - continues to hark back in time, although it will be just a while until the lady seeks out a suitable hairdresser.
Manyata Dutt is evolving, even as she has affected much change in her husband Sanjay Dutt’s life. There is reason why much noise was made about Mrs Dutt’s new gift. “Manyata publicity ke liye kuch bhi karegi,” says an insider. “It was her idea that the media be called and that Sanjay should speak about the new swanky car.
So Sanjay cooked up a tale that the car was a post-delivery gift to Manyata.” Fact is, the actor has been dying to buy a Rolls Royce for the last eight years. He is very fond of fast cars. He is known to have gone into depression when Vidhu Vinod Chopra gifted a Phantom to Amitabh Bachchan, after the release of Eklavya.

Sanju baba’s tainted past comes back to haunt him; he is denied entry into the US to attend Trishala’s graduation day
Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 04, 2010)
It isn’t an easy situation. Sanjay Dutt, who has had a chequered relationship at best with his New York-based daughter Trishala, won’t be able to attend her graduation ceremony, a singularly special day for Americans as parents join their children to celebrate the completion of their degrees in a ceremony titled commencement.
Sanjay Dutt’s application for his visa renewal (he had a 10-year visa to visit the United States) was rejected for the second time by the US consulate on the grounds that he was convicted for the 1993 serial blasts, for illegal possession of arms.
A source close to Dutt reveals, “The actor was very disheartened as he is unable to go to the US for his own daughter’s graduation day.
Commencement or Graduation Day is a big deal in the US and he wanted to be with his daughter on her big day.
Trishala is graduating from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.” Ironically, Trishala was so traumatised by Sanju baba’s tryst with the legal system that she took up law as a career option. And now daddy himself will be missing.
The source continues, “Sanjay Dutt had a 10-year visa which expired. Dutt had re-applied twice but has been rejected both times.
The actor has been flying all over the world for his shoots and location scouting, but just can’t More >
Sanjay Dutt and his wife are expecting their first child in January 2011
Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 09, 2010)
Almost two months before his 51st birthday (29 July), Sanjay Dutt has received the best gift he could have ever hoped for.
Finally Sanjay and his wife Maanyata Dutt’s agonising wait for parenthood is going to be over. Yes, Maanyata is finally expecting. Apparently, the baby is due in January 2011.
For nearly two years both had expressed an ardent desire to have a child to not only their close friends but also in their press interviews. In fact, a year ago during his 50th birthday Sanjay had said, “Besides my freedom what I really want is to be a father, please pray for me.”Pic: Yogen Shah
His prayers have been answered. This week the Dutts have been confiding in their close friends about the impending new arrival in their house. Friends who attended a film award event at Colombo with the Dutts first heard the good news there and were thrilled to bits on the ecstatic couple’s behalf.
Though the Dutts don’t have a particular preference about having a son or a daughter, buzz is that Sanjay is hoping it’s a boy since he already has a daughter, Trishala.
Repeated messages to Sanjay and Maanyata inquiring about the good news yielded no response. However, at least three people very close to the actor have confirmed that the actor and his wife are soon expecting a child.
A quiet and sombre Sanjay Dutt brought in his 50th birthday yesterday at Cape Town in South Africa with wife Maanyata and fellow actors on the sets of Anees Bazmee’s film No Problem. Missing was the family — daughter Trishala and sisters Priya and Namrata, and close friend and Samajwadi Party boss Amar Singh, who is recuperating in Singapore from a kidney transplant. But Suniel Shetty, Akshaye Khanna, Anil Kapoor and Paresh Rawal made up for it with a surprise party. Inundated with calls and messages from friends, fans and well-wishers back home, Dutt told BT from there, “Life has come a full circle for me at 50. I just feel lucky to be celebrating this day with my loved ones.”
At this milestone year in his life, the actor has no intention of slowing down. Apart from the recently released Luck, he has a string of releases due that see him take a break from the usual macho gangster act. From the fantasy flick Aladin — in which he plays a villainous character — to the underwater treasure adventure Blue. And from the comic caper Chatursingh 2 Star to the intense drama Lamha. Reflecting on the rollercoaster ride his journey has been — right from battling drug addiction to being embroiled in the 1993 bomb blasts case — the actor said, “It’s been a long and tiring journey, but I have no complaints. I have lost More >
Sanjay Dutt, who turns 50 on July 29, is looking better than he has in recent years — the actor admits that he’s even feeling better these days. And with six releases lined up in the next six months — kickstarting with the Soham Shah-directed Luck that releases on July 24 — Dutt admits that work couldn’t have been more exciting. Produced by Dhilin Mehta under his banner Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd, Luck is a hardcore action adventure that boasts of some death-defying and high octane stunts. The film that also stars Imran Khan, Mithun Chakraborty, Ravi Kissen, Chitrashi Rawat, Danny Denzongpa and marks the debut of Shruti Haasan, has the deadly Dutt doing what he does best — action! “Yes, it was exciting doing those action sequences. I think Soham’s really pushed the envelope of this genre,” says Dutt. Unfazed by the younger crop of actors entering the industry, Dutt says, “It’s good to see such talent on this big a scale.” Point out to the actor that he’s still giving the younger actors a run for their money, and he laughs it off. “You have to accept your age gracefully and admit that you can’t be doing the same stuff that you did a decade back. But I’m glad I’m getting roles that suit me.” With a mixed fare on his filmi platter from a fantasy thriller to a comedy and More >
