Sanjay Dutt after the success of the biopic ‘Sanju’, now plans to pen an autobiography that is set to release his sixtieth birthday on July 29, 2019.
The actor who is gearing up for the release on ‘Saheb Biwi aur Gangster 3’ is set out to write his autobiography that will be published by HarperCollins.
Sanjay in a statement said, “I have had the fortune of living a remarkable life, full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows. There are so many interesting stories to tell that I’ve never had the chance to tell before. I am looking forward so much to sharing my memories and emotions with readers everywhere,”
Apart from his professional accomplishments, the actor’s ebbs and flows will be captured in his memoir. His story has been told and retold in the media and through books by other authors, but it’s the first time Sanjay will be opening up his heart in a book about losing his mother Nargis Dutt as he was making his debut in “Rocky”; his battle with substance abuse, multiple heartbreaks, encounters with the law and a staggered stint in prison, alongside his closeness to his father Sunil Dutt, his superstardom, his physique and his return to the big screen and his family life.
Udayan Mitra, Publisher – Literary, HarperCollins India, said: “I am absolutely thrilled that we will be bringing out Sanjay Dutt’s autobiography in the summer of 2019. He’ a star like no other, and what an extraordinary life he has had.
“This is a memoir that is going to be told from the heart, and will reveal a Sanjay Dutt that even his most ardent fans don’t know.”
The Ranbir Kapoor starrer biopic starring ‘Sanju’, released to positive reviews last month, and has fetched over Rs 250 crore at the box office in India so far.
