SANJAY DUTT’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY
on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday in July 2019
What makes Sanjay Dutt’s journey an epic story, quite apart from his professional accomplishments, are the ebbs and flows that have characterised his life. It is a story that begins with his losing his mother Nargis Dutt even as he was making his debut in Rocky; and it is a story that then encompasses substance abuse, multiple heartbreaks, encounters with the law and a staggered stint in prison, alongside his closeness to his father Sunil Dutt who stood by him through thick and thin, his superstardom, his enviable physique, and finally his return to the big screen and his contented family life.
Sanjay Dutt is a fighter who has overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges, but has always believed that you can have anything if you want it badly enough. Unconventional, unapologetic, constantly evolving, self-made and quite unique, Sanjay Dutt continues to tug at the heartstrings of millions.
His memoir will wear the tumult that has made him who he is like a badge of honour. With this book, the reader will finally get to lookinto his soul. Finally, we will get to hear the fascinating stories about his youth, his Bollywood stint in the ‘80s and ‘90s, his experiences in prison, and his self-discovery, that have never been told before.
Sanjay Dutt’s autobiography will perhaps be the biggest, most dramatic and honest star memoir to emerge out of Bollywood.
The memoir will be published by HarperCollins for his sixtieth birthday on 29 July 2019.
“I am delighted that next year, as I turn sixty, HarperCollins will be publishing my autobiography. I have had the fortune of living a remarkable life, full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows. There are so many interesting stories to tell that I’ve never had the chance to tell before. I am looking forward so much to sharing my memories and emotions with readers everywhere.” – Sanjay Dutt
“I am absolutely thrilled that we will be bringing out Sanjay Dutt’s autobiography in the summer of 2019. He’s a star like no other, and what an extraordinary life he’s had! This is a memoir that is going to be told from the heart, and will reveal a Sanjay Dutt that even his most ardent fans don’t know. I can hardly wait to publish it! “— Udayan Mitra, Publisher – Literary, HarperCollins India
