Revealing about their first meeting, Manyata said, “We met nine years ago, for six years we were friends and we were seeing each other only for the past three years but nine years is a long enough time to know someone enough, to know that you want to be with them forever."
Speaking about the huge 19 year age gap between the two, Manyata said, “I have always been mature for my age and Sanju has always been a little childish for his age, so it makes no difference now."
Manyata revealed that though Sanjay has a huge fan following, she had never been a fan of her actor husband. When asked how she relates to Sanjay as an actor, she quickly replied, “The day I start relating to Sanjay Dutt as an actor, I don't think my marriage will work. I relate to him as a person. Ki subah uthke mujhe autograph nahin lena hai, nashta banana hai"
