Now, Sanjay Dutt autobiography announced by HarperCollins

The book will be launched to mark the actor’s 60th birthday on July 29, 2019.

Sanjay Dutt’s autobiography is in the works, and will be published by HarperCollins India on his 60th birthday on July 29, 2019.

The publishing house announced on Wednesday that the book will encompass “fascinating stories about his youth, his Bollywood stint in the ‘80s and ‘90s, his experiences in prison, and his self-discovery, that have never been told before”.

The announcement comes close on the heels of the release of Rajkumar Hirani’s Dutt biopic Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor, which has earned over Rs 250 crore at the box office.

The memoir will begin with the death of Dutt’s mother, the actress Nargis, in 1981, and include his romantic relationships, his struggle with substance abuse, legal troubles and imprisonment for the possession of illegal weapons in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, the publishing house said.

In an official statement, Dutt said the autobiography will enable him to narrate stories that have not been told before. “I am delighted that next year, as I turn 60, HarperCollins will be publishing my autobiography,” he said. “I have had the fortune of living a remarkable life, full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows. There are so many interesting stories to tell that I’ve never had the chance to tell before. I am looking forward so much to sharing my memories and emotions with readers everywhere.”

HarperCollins India’s Udayan Mitra said the memoir will be “from the heart and will reveal a Sanjay Dutt that even his most ardent fans don’t know”.
