New Delhi: Sanjay Dutt tried to make a mark in politics like his father and actor Sunil Dutt, but failed. The Samajwadi Party had given him a ticket from the Lucknow seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, but the court refused to quash his conviction under the Arms Act, forcing him to back out, though the actor remained the party’s star campaigner. . The actor once narrated a funny anecdote related to the promotion.
Sanjay Dutt had told, ‘Once he took me to UP elections. I told Amar Singh ji that I do not know how to give speech. They said – Don’t panic, first say that your father came to Lucknow after partition, that’s why you love Lucknow very much. Second thing to say that you believe in Gandhiji a lot. Third thing, speak a lion.
Sanjay Dutt was supposed to go on stage the next day, but just before the speech, an interesting incident happened with him. The actor further said, ‘The first thing a candidate said was that Sanjay Dutt’s father had come to Lucknow earlier. I had only 2 things left to say. I told Amar Singh that he spoke my first thing. Amar Singh got up and said that we will speak first. His speech lasted for 40 minutes. He finally said that Sanjay Dutt was with me in the aeroplane, he likes Gandhiji’s three monkeys very much. By saying three monkeys, he also called that lion. Now I have nothing left to speak.
Sanjay Dutt’s concern increased. He said to Amar Singh, ‘What should I say on the stage now? He said go and speak the dialogue. Sanju Bhai spoke the dialogue of his famous film ‘Vaastav’ – ‘Pachas Tola…’ Then the people present there started cheering with enthusiasm. Please tell that the actor’s father Sunil Dutt has been a veteran leader of the Congress party, while his sister Priya Dutt has also been a former Congress MP.
