Sanjay Dutt and Manyata might have tied the knot after a Marathi newspaper carried a half page greetings for Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on his 82nd birthday. The greeting was undersigned as "From Sanjay Dutt and Manyata Dutt". Although his father was a loyal Congressman, Sanjay admires Thackeray as the leader had helped him get bail in the Bombay Bomb Blasts case.
The two are said to have had a registered marriage sometime back in the presence of a few friends. Sanjay's sister Priya and Namrata are not very fond of Manyata and are opposed to her being with their brother. Sanjay's daughter Trishala doesn't like Manyata either. Sources close to the couple said that they had kept their marriage secret due to the ongoing trail. Manyata has been seen by Sanjay's side in his troubled times.
