MUMBAI : Once upon a time, Sanjay Dutt revealed an incident that happened when he used to take drugs. He shared this when he was a guest on Salman Khan’s game show a few years back, called Dus Ka Dum, with actor Jackie Shroff. During the show, Jackie asked Sanjay to talk about his experience with drugs to raise awareness for college students to understand its effect on someone’s life.
Sanjay had said, "Drugs is useless thing." The actor then spoke about an incident, "Ek time mai ekdum solid nasha karke aaya, room mein jaake sogaya main. Din ka time tha 7-8 baje toh main utha toh bhook lagi thi. Main ek naukar ko bola, bohut purana naukar tha, bola 'thoda khaana dede (Once I was so high, I just went to my room and slept. I woke up at around 7-8 in the morning feeling hungry. I asked my house help, who was with me for several years, 'Give me food')."
"Toh woh rone laga, bola, 'Do din k baad tu khaana maang raha hai'. Maine bola, 'Do din kaha? Main toh kal raat ko soya tha'. Usne bola, 'Nahi tu do din pehle soya tha'. Mere ko hosh hi nahi tha. Usdin maine decide kiya ki main chodh dunga. Yeh drugs kuch nahi, zindagi ka nasha, best (He started crying and said, 'You are asking for food after two days'. I said, 'How is it two days? I slept last night'. He said, 'No, you slept two days ago'. I wasn't in my senses. That is the day I decided to quit drugs. Drugs is a waste, the high of life is the best)."
Sanjay has always been vocal about the time he got involved with drugs. Earlier this year, speaking with YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia, Sanjay had said, “I was very shy, especially with women, so I started it to look cool. You do it and you become a cooler guy with the ladies, you talk to them. Ten years of my life I was in my room, or in the bathroom, and not interested in shoots. But this is what life is, and that’s how everything changed. When I came back (from the rehab), people used to call me charsi (addict). And I thought, galat hai yeh (this is wrong)."
Sanjay Dutt was recently in YRF period drama Shamshera, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Vaani Kapoor. Directed by Karan Malhotra, the film didn’t do well at the box office and with audiences as well. His next big film will be the family entertainer film Ghudchadi, which will also star Raveena Tandon, Parth Samthan and Khushali Kumar in the lead roles. The film is being directed by Binoy Gandhi and produced by T-series and Keep Dreaming pictures.
