Today, we will talk about one of the most talked-about celebrity couples of the 90s, Hunk Sanjay Dutt and the Dhak dhak girl, Mudhuri Dixit. Where Sanjay was on top his career and was seeking recovery from his past, Madhuri was already on the top of her career by starring in some of the biggest hits of the 90s which includes Beta, Hum Aaple Hain Kaun, Dil Toh Pagal hai and many more.
My favourite partner is Sanjay Dutt
Son of late Bollywood actors Sunil and Nargis Dutt, Sanjay always had the image of a spoilt-brat in Tinsel town. After the unfortunate demise of Sanjay’s mother Nargis, the Saajan star faced one of the most difficult situation of his lifetime, ‘drug-addiction’. Soon, Sanjay was sent to the U.S of America at a de-addiction center.
In no time, Sanjay proved that he was bigger than the addiction and was back in the tinsel town, ready to roll. And that is when he met Madhuri (On the sets of 1991 hit movie Saajan). This was the on-set of their romantic love-affair.
Also, if the rumors are to be believed than this was not just a fly-by-affair. Both the Bollywood actors,Sanjay and Madhuri were serious about their relationship with each other. There love-affair began after working in several movies together like Thaanedar, Saajan, Khalnayak and many more.
Madhuri and Sanjay started working together from 1988 to 1997 during which they did almost 10 movies together. Once in an interview Madhuri mentioned Sanjay as one of his favorite partners; “My favourite partner is Sanjay Dutt, he’s a real joker…and his stories make me laugh all the time, but he is also a gentleman. Sanju is a fantastic person. He has a loving heart and, in contrast to the widely held view, a good sense of humour. He is the only guy who makes me laugh all the time. He does not play games. He is open and uncomplicated.”
Such interviews of both the stars and the spicy on-screen chemistry of the duo sparked numerous debates about their actual love-affair. But there were no official agreement regarding the same by any of them.
Khalnayak star Sanjay Dutt was married to her first wife Richa at that time. Near about every gossip around the town at that time said that Sanjay will one day leave Richa for Madhuri to which Richa was once quoted as “We’ve been apart for so long, we’re not totally in tune with each other. But it is nothing serious, we can overcome it. I did ask Sanjay if he was going to divorce me and he said absolutely not. As for me, I don’t want a divorce. I’ve come down because I want to be with him again.”
In no time, Richa was out of Sanjay’s life and there were no more hurdles in the path of Sanjay and Madhuri’s relationship, until 1993’s Bombay blasting happened. Unfortunately, due to some reasons Sanjay’s name was involved in the blasting which took place in Mumbai in 1993. Bollywood actor Sanjay got arrested for illegal possession of arms and was charged under the TADA act.
And since then life changed for the Munnabhai MBBS actor. Few years later, Madhuri Dixit tied the knot with a California-based surgeon Dr Sriram Nene in 1999. Both the actors have maintained their silence about the same since then.
But fortunately, as per some recent reports we might get a chance of witnessing the sizzling on-screen chemistry of Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit Nene in Karan Johar’s upcoming movie ‘Kalank’.
