Sanjay Dutt quotes
# “I don’t remember of any phase in my life where there have been no problems,”
# “Today, as I’ve matured I’ve understood his silent strength and grown even closer to him. I love my dad, I adore him. Today my love for him is something I feel strongly about. I realised how it took a change in me to appreciate my dad’s strength.”
# “I was always my mother’s pet. She gave me whatever I wanted. Those days for me to whiz around in a sports car and wear Italian threads was the most important thing. I mean, life was one big party. Loud music, wild partying, the works.”
# “I always was a passionate man, a passionate person. To me passion meant living it up. Enjoying life to the fullest. I always did what I wanted. I was always given whatever I desired.”
# “Earlier I was violent too. Hot-tempered. I used to hate myself later, after losing my cool. It is people with no directive in life, who’re violent. People with zero intelligence. Zero sensitivity. Zero civility and with no powers of reasonability who resort to violence.”
# “I concentrate on my work. I’ve made it my passion today. I laugh within when people praise my acting today. The same people had predicted that I’d never make it.”
# “Success is like a fistful of sand, you relax a bit and it slips out of your fingers.”
# “You know, my success depresses me. It always has. Every time my films do well I feel kind of responsibilities increase, expectations run high. I’m not sure I can live up to them, no actor can keep giving hits again and again.”
# “I respond to love and kindness with all my heart. If I get a little I am willing to give everything.”
# “I don’t feel competitive at all. I feel everybody’s got their own place. I’m not in the number game at all. I’ve never wanted to be. I am an individual, not a number.”
# “All I can say is that I have full faith in the judiciary. I am thankful to the people of this country; I have a long battle to face; please pray for me and I love you all.” [ After released on bail]

Sanjay Dutt about Munnabhai MBBS.  :
“It’s a kind of satire on the medical profession, but at the same time, it’s a fun film, though not a slapstick comedy. The jokes and dialogs aren’t written to evoke a forced laughter; I’d say it’s situational. Munnabhai is comical because of the way he is. But at the core, it’s a very emotional film. It will be a really fantastic film. The script is amazingly hilarious. It’s not an inspired story, it’s original. Munnabhai was one role I couldn’t refuse, as it’s in a league of its own. Suddenly, due to one jhatka in his life, he decides to become a doctor. So how a bhai enrolls in a medical college and goes to study medicine is very funny as an idea.”
