A lot of people have expressed disappointment at filmmaker Raj Kumar Hirani for leaving out major phases of Sanjay Dutt’s life in his biopic, Sanju. After director Ram Gopal Verma has announced that he will make a version he thinks will be more enlightening, here we recount some things that we might see in the second biopic.

1. Sanjay Dutt’s marital life and daughter

Sanju has no mention of Sanjay’s first wife Richa Sharma, a former actress who he met during his days in rehab. Richa was diagnosed with brain tumour and got treated at the same hospital in the US as Sanjay’s mother Nargis Dutt. He also had a strained relationship with his daughter Trishala for many years. Although the father-daughter duo has buried the hatchet now, Trishala was reportedly offended about her mother Richa missing from the film. Sanjay’s second wife Rhea Pillai, who he married two years after Richa’s death, also found no place in the film.

2. Kumar Gaurav

Sanjay’s addiction to drugs took a toll on his films too with continuous flops for the next five years after Rocky. That’s when his close friend actor Kumar Gaurav tried to revive his career with the 1986 film Naam, which was directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The film turned out to be a blockbuster. This and a lot more Gaurav did for Sanjay. Sanju missed out on a lot more that Gurav did for him, even the fact that he later became Sanjay’s brother-in-law.

3. Sanjay’s alleged link-ups

We only saw Ruby as Sanjay’s love interest. But there were several co-stars who were allegedly linked with Sanjay during the 1990s. This speculated list includes Madhuri Dixit and Tina Munim.

4. Sanjay’s failed attempt to enter politics

Sanjay had plans of contesting as a candidate from the Samajwadi Party in the 2009 parliamentary elections. However, owing to his involvement in the 1993 bombings, the Supreme Court cancelled his candidature. Sanjay had in later interviews said that he wished to get associated with the Congress. Sunil was also a Congress man and served as the Union sports minister in the UPA government between 2004 and 2005.
