Sanjay says he did Luck for a lark. ''I did it just to help Soham Shah. I really didn't have the time or date. I told him to just cast me in a small role which would finish quickly. In fact the role shaped up bigger than planned. As long as it makes some money and no one loses any, I'm happy.''
Hours before his birthday Sanjay was chilled out. But he has regrets about not being able to be near Amar Singh on his birthday. ''I couldn't even visit Amar Singhji because by the time the visa materialized the surgery was over. My wife Maanyata was there. But I speak to him every day. He"s out of the hospital now. He sounds better. I've seen his health deteriorate during the election campaigns. God gave me an opportunity to look after my elder brother during the elections. I'm glad I was around.''
But cheering up Sanjay says, ''I heard Bunty Walia is coming. Everything he does is announced on Facebook. So he has announced he's coming for my birthday.''
On his birthday today, Sanjay Dutt feels very charitable towards those who have apparently not been kind to him. Shrugging off stories of Imran Khan undercutting his role in Luck, Sanjay says, ''Imran is like a little child. He was very respectful through the two films we've done together. He's a good actor. I wish him luck and I want him to grow into an actor as big as his uncle (Aamir). Imran is too young to create problems for me.''
