With Sanjay Dutt in prison, another Dutt has stepped forward to carry on the family's legacy in Bollywood.
Sanjay's daughter Trishala, now studying criminal psychology in New York, is planning to shift to Mumbai and join films as soon as she finishes her degree. The 19-year-old has reportedly expressed her desire to take up an acting career in order to be "closer to dad".
Born and raised in New York, the plump and chubby-faced girl has already transformed into a successful model and has received quite a few acting offers already.
However, Sanjay is said to be against his daughter joining tinsel town because he feels actresses have nowadays been reduced to just adorning the big screen. But Trishala is sure eventually give in to her wish.
And once she lands in Mumbai, the wannabe actress wants to be cast opposite none other than Salman Khan, who is Sanjay's good friend. "I am in love with him. I told Salman this when I was younger," smiled Trishala.
