Sanjay Dutt’s father, late Sunil Dutt was the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports in the Manmohan Singh Government (2004-2005) and Sanjay Dutt’s sister, Priya Dutt is a former Member of Parliament. And now, it is being reported that with the Lok Sabha Elections round the corner, actor Sanjay Dutt is going to contest the elections and give tough competition to former AAP leader Kumar Vishwa, who will contest the elections from Ghaziabad.

For all those who don’t know, in 2009, Sanjay Dutt was contesting the Lok Sabha Elections from Samajwadi Party; however, he withdrew when the court refused to suspend his conviction. In April 1993, Sanjay Dutt was arrested under the provisions of the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Prevention Act. While he was granted bail by the Supreme Court of India on May 5, 1993, on July 4, 1994, his bail was canceled and he was re-arrested. According to a report in News18, “There are speculations that the Aam Aadmi Party's rebel leader and poet Kumar Vishwas will be in the field on Congress ticket. On the other hand, SP-BSP combine can play the stakes on Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt to give them a hit. However, both of these reports have not been officially confirmed.”

But with the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, rumour has it that former AAP leader Kumar Vishwa will contest the election from Ghaziabad and Congress party ticket and he will get tough competition from SP-BSP collation candidate Sanjay Dutt. Kumar Vishwa is the founder of the Aam Aadmi Party.

On the work front, on June 29, 2018, a film on the life of Sanjay Dutt titled Sanju was released and the film follows the life of Sanjay Dutt and his addiction with drugs, arrest for alleged association with the 1993 bombings and his relationship with his father. Next, Sanjay Dutt will be seen in Mahesh Bhatt’s film Sadak 2 and Abhishek Varman’s Kalank.
