Sanjay Dutt: I made my children meet Madhuri Dixit on Kalank sets

With over 100 films to his credit, Sanjay Dutt is one of the most sought-after actors in Bollywood. But the 59-year-old actor got “a little nervous” while shooting with Madhuri Dixit after 22 years. It is no secret that Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit are reuniting on the big screen after two decades with Karan Johar’s Kalank. Sanjay Dutt added that the two bonded over their kids. In fact, he made his two children [Shahraan and Iqra Dutt] meet Madhuri Dixit on the film sets.

Sanjay Dutt, in an interview to a daily, opened up on the experience of working with Madhuri Dixit after so long. He said, “It was great to work with her again. I was a little nervous, but she made things easy. She’s got terrific command as an actor. We spoke about our kids. In fact, I made my children [Shahraan and Iqra] meet her when they dropped by on the sets.”

Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit were rumoured to be dating back in the early 90s. But a lot has changed since then. Madhuri Dixit is married to Dr. Shriram Nene and has two sons. Sanjay, on the other hand, got hitched to Maanayata Dutt and has twins – Shahraan Dutt and Iqra Dutt.

Now, Sanjay and Madhuri are reuniting after two decades for a period film. One of the most-anticipated films of 2019, Kalank is the brain child of later filmmaker Yash Johar.

Sanjay Dutt revealed that Yash Johar had briefly mentioned about Kalank when the two were working together on the 1993 film Gumrah.

“During the shoot of Gumrah, Yash uncle had briefly mentioned about the story. Dharma Productions is like family; so when Karan approached me with the film, I had to do it. It is also a coincidence that my character is named Balraj, which is my father’s [Sunil Dutt] real name. He too came from Pakistan during Partition, so it has an emotional connect,” said Sanjay Dutt.

Kalank, which also stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur, is set to hit the screens on April 17.
