Journalist-biographer Yasser Usman wrote a biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s roller-coaster life, whom the writer calls “the man-child who never grew up“. But Sanjay Dutt called it as an Unauthorized book that is made without his confirmation.
Sanjay further said, “It is based on my old interviews, but rest all seemed to be based on hearsay, 1990s’ tabloids and gossip magazines, most of which are a fiction of imagination and not true”.
Sanjay is planning legal action against the writer and publisher of his unauthorized biography The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood’s Bad Boy. In response, the publisher has decided not to reveal any part or matter from the book so that it will not make any headlines in the media.
Yaseer Usman revealed some part of the biopic of Sanjay Dutt on twitter and Sanjay Dutt was not happy by this. Have a look at the post:
‘For a moment he felt his mother had come back from the dead to save him.’
