In a conversation with Indian Express, Paresh Rawal revealed that he had received a letter from Sunil Dutt wishing him a very happy birthday just hours before he breathed his last.
Udayan Mitra, Publisher - Literary, HarperCollins India, said: "I am absolutely thrilled that we will be bringing out Sanjay Dutt's autobiography in the summer of 2019".
In March this year, a biography titled "Sanjay Dutt: The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood's Bad Boy" was written and released by journalist-biographer Yasser Usman. "Finally, we will get to hear the fascinating stories about his youth, his Bollywood stint in the 1980s and '90s, his experiences in prison, and his self-discovery, that have never been told before", the publishers said.
Apart from his professional accomplishments, the actor's ebbs and flows will be captured in his memoir, being billed as "perhaps the biggest, most dramatic and honest star memoir to emerge out of Bollywood".
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju, which starres Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt, opened to mixed reviews but the audiences have loved the performances making the film a box-office hit. The film has amassed over Rs 250 crore at the box office.
Released on June 29, Sanju stars Ranbir Kapoor, Paresh Raval, Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Karishma Tanna and Boman Irani in prominent roles.
Commenting on the book, Dutt said, "I have had the fortune of living a remarkable life, full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows. I am looking forward so much to sharing my memories and emotions with readers everywhere", Sanjay said in a statement.
