Sanjay Dutt and Manyata are indulging in an extended honeymoon while shooting for Ashtavinayak's Blue in the Bahamas. They have been staying at the Atlantis (a large resort and casino) located on Paradise Island in Nassau. Sanju and Manayata have been put up at The Reef, the latest building at Atlantis consisting of condominium hotel residences at $700-800 per day for the last two weeks.
A source close to Sanjay says, "It's almost like a honeymoon for Sanju and Mana. They are staying at a terrace apartment overlooking the sea complete with kitchen et all. Originally, they were to be put up at a room at Royal Towers (also part of Atlantis and where Akshay Kumar is currently staying) but Manayata saw that Sanju's diet wasn't working out so they got a place with a kitchen.
He's stopped drinking and been on a strict diet of boiled and steamed food for the last three months. Now Mana cooks for him everything from brown rice to tur dal, chicken sausages and scrambled eggs. On most days, he takes the food to the sets of Blue where he's been shooting." The source adds, "The Dutts go shopping every Sunday to the local grocery shop like any normal couple would for their weekly shopping. Sanju takes a cart while Mana instructs him on what to put in.
They mostly buy fruits, eggs, meat and green vegetables all according to Sanju's diet. Mana's keeping a strict watch as she feels he's looking hot after losing so much weight. They are enjoying the solitude and peace after going through a rough time for the last few months in India. Recently, close friend Dharam Oberoi got rice and tur dal (Sanju's favourite dal) from India. Sanju and Manayata are staying on the 16th floor while Zayed Khan and his wife Malaika with their baby is staying on the 17th floor. So almost every night they two couples go out for dinner, especially sushi and steak joints as Sanju loves both. Last Saturday they went to the Sea Fire Steakhouse for dinner."
The source says the Dutts won't be back in India till September. "After the Blue schedule, Sanju and Manayata, will come to Mumbai for a couple of days and then leave for South Africa (Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban) for a 40-day schedule of Chatur Singh Two Star and then Bangkok for another film.
They love spending so much time together away from the stress and bustle of Mumbai and are looking at these months as an extended honeymoon. Sanju works out at the hotel gym in the morning for his cardio and weight training and cycles at his apartment in the evening for 45 minutes. He bought a spin cycle in Nassau."
