Used to wear San­jay Dutt’s suits to par­ties: Anil

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

While there have been many sto­ries of the good bond they share, ac­tor Anil Kapoor (right) has re­vealed that there was a time when he used to at­tend par­ties, wear­ing San­jay Dutt’s (in­set) suits on rent.

Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Satish Kaushik and Gul­shan Grover had re­united to cel­e­brate the 30th year of Ram Lakhan at Sub­hash Ghai's newly launched the­atre, Muk­taA2. At the oc­ca­sion, footage of the pre­miere of Ram Lakhan was showed, which fea­tured a young Kapoor in a dash­ing suit. “One thing I have to say is that the suit that I wore on the pre­miere, I am sure it was 100 per cent a rented suit. It wasn’t mine,” said Kapoor.

To which, Grover elab­o­rated say­ing that the suit in­deed wasn’t of Kapoor as the duo used to wear rented party wear at that time. “The suit re­ally wasn’t Anil’s. It was Ra­jeev Mehra’s wed­ding and there were five to six func­tions. Nei­ther Anil nor I had suits. So we both used to go to Ak­bar (de­signer) to bor­row suits of other ac­tors. And he used to give Anil Kapoor suits of San­jay Dutt while I used to get only shirts. He never thought I would be­come an ac­tor,” Grover said.

The ac­tor said for days Kapoor and he would have to do “some but­ter­ing” so that the de­signer would give them suits. Rem­i­nisc­ing the in­ci­dent Kapoor said, “I re­mem­ber. You’re ab­so­lutely right. Ak­bar was kind enough to give me San­jay Dutt's suits to wear. They were a lit­tle loose, be­cause he (Dutt) was well built and I was sin­gle ‘pasli’. But I used to wear his suits.”
