Sanjay Dutt's life was certainly not a bed of roses and had a lot of thorns along the way. Despite of several ups and downs, the actor made it big in life and thrived at whatever he set to achieve. His biopic Sanju, which was helmed by Ranbir Kapoor showcased all of this on the silver screen but the movie failed to show several important aspects and gossips about his life. We're not sure if Rajkumar Hirani omitted these on purpose, but below are 10 important events which occurred in the life of Sanjay Dutt. He is indeed one man, with many lives!
Sanjay Dutt With First Wife Richa Sharma
Sanjay Dutt first met Richa Sharma while he was undergoing rehab at a hospital in the USA. Richa was diagnosed with brain tumour at the same hospital. It is reported that Sanjay found it very hard to balance his personal and professional life at that period, hence had a strained relationship with daughter Trishala Dutt for several years. This was missed in Sanju.

Sanjay Dutt's Friendship With Kumar Gaurav

Though Sanju showed Sanjay Dutt accepting a delivery of explosives and weapons from gangsters who plotted the Mumbai serial blasts, it showed no alleged involvement of Sanjay Dutt with gangsters like Abu Salem and Chota Shakeel.
Sanjay Dutt's Attempt To Get Into Politics
During the Lok Sabha elections in 2009, Sanjay Dutt had a failed attempt to get into politics and stood as a candidate with the Samajwadi Party. Since his name was involved in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, the Supreme Court rejected and cancelled his candidature. Rajkumar Hirani failed to show this in Sanju.
Sanjay Dutt's Vaastav
Even before Munna Bhai M.B.B.S, Sanjay Dutt's blockbuster hit was Vaastav. The movie gave him a unique identity and though Rajkumar Hirani has shown clips from Munna Bhai, he didn't show the audiences other favourite Vaastav.
