Sanjay Dutt and wife Manyata flew off to the Bahamas in the wee hours of Saturday morning for the shooting of Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision's Blue. Dutt was disappointed, though, as his US visa got rejected last week by the US consulate. In effect, Dutt will not be able to visit his daughter, Trishala.
Says a source close to Sanjay Dutt, "Sanju's US visa was rejected by the American Consulate so he couldn't go to New York to meet his daughter Trishala as he was planning to. He was eagerly awaiting the trip as he and Manyata had bought loads of gifts for Trishala, including diamonds.
Trishala had been unhappy over Sanju's sudden marriage to Mana and was avoiding Mana and Sanju's calls and messages. It was Mana who told Sanju that they should visit Trishala in New York and make peace with her before shooting in the Bahamas. But last week, when Sanju applied for his US visa, it was rejected."
The source reveals that Sanju was extremely disappointed at the turn of events. But also adds that, "he was looking forward to meeting Trishala and sorting out the issues confronting them and introducing Manyata as his wife. Moreover, Manyata has a US visa and New York is not very far from the Bahamas.
Also Mana is very keen that Sanju and Trishala reconcile as both father and daughter adore each other and are missing each other a lot." Trishala is currently completing a course in criminal justice and also trying her hand at modelling. The Supreme Court had earlier given permission to Dutt to go abroad to shoot for Blue. Manyata will stay with Sanju in the Bahamas till he completes the shoot.
A senior CBI officer says, "The visa procedure and discretion to issue a visa is solely the lookout of the Consulate. Usually, if a person is convicted, getting a US visa is difficult." A spokesperson from the American Consulate refused to divulge any personal information about any visa applicant as per existing rules.
