Actor Sanjay Dutt walked the memory lane on Monday, sharing a childhood photo of himself with mother Nargis Dutt as he remembered her on the 40th anniversary of her death. Dutt wrote an emotional caption next to the heartwarming picture posted on Instagram. “Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you, Ma!” The actor wrote.
She died on May 3, 1981 after fighting pancreatic cancer for nearly a year. Since Sanjay Dutt made his Bollywood debut – four days after Nargis’ death – the actor has never shied away from talking about his mother and the impact she made on his life. In fact, Sanjay Dutt’s Instagram is also filled with pictures and posts about his parents – Nargis and Sunil Dutt.
Just last month, the actor shared a romantic photo of the deceased couple to mark their 63rd wedding anniversary. “You two taught me the real meaning of love. Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad ”, wrote Sanjay Dutt next to the photo.
In a career spanning three decades, Nargis Dutt, one of the country’s greatest acting talents, has delivered hits like Mother India, Raat Aur Din, Shree 420, Barsaat, Andaz, Jogan, Awaara, Deedar and Chori Chori. She was nominated for the Rajya Sabha in 1980.
On the labor front, Sanjay Dutt last appeared in Torbaaz and directed Sadak 2 by Mahesh Bhatt. The actor’s upcoming projects include Yash-Star KGF 2 and YRF-supported Shamshera alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Vaani Kapoor.
