SANJAY DUTT TURNS 58
On Dutt’s 58th birthday, here’s checking out some of the most iconic looks that the actor sported on the big screen
SON OF SARDAR (2012)
Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt’s bandit king avatar from dacoit drama Mujhe Jeene Do (1963), inspired his look for the role of Balwinder Sandhu. From his clothes, wavy long hair and makeup, Dutt’s character bears so much resemblance to his father’s role in the film.
Possibly one of the sexiest bad guys on screen, Ballu remains Dutt’s most remembered role till date. While playing a fearsome terrorist, he exuded the intensity that his character demanded. Despite unkempt mane, rough beard and shabby demeanor, Dutt looked every bit attractive.
Dutt won many hearts with his ferocious looks as Kancha Cheena. Dangerous, ruthless and menacing, Dutt pulled off the role of a drug lord with his deadly bald look and that piercing on his ear made his look all the more fierce — not to forget, the massive tattoos on his arms.
Raghunath Namdev Shivalkar, the gangster role won Dutt a National Award for his on-screen portrayal. Donning mostly white kurta pyajama teamed with gold ornaments, and neatly gelled hair with red tilak completing the look, Dutt character was loosely based on the life of Chhota Rajan.
Playing the role of a physically disabled poet Aman, Dutt rocked in those long tresses, which became a trend among young guys. Playing the role of an introvert, the actor mostly flaunted shirts in solid colours and effortlessly charmed the audience.
For the role of Balajeet ‘Bala’ Roy, Dutt underwent a complete makeover for his part in the film. With rugged beard and unkempt fringes, the actor convincingly played his part where his character is imprisoned for 14 years without any clue, and is suddenly released.
MUNNABHAI M.B.B.S (2003)
Only Dutt could make ‘tapori’ look so stylish. He plays the role of a local goon, Murli Prasad Sharma, who becomes a doctor by attaining a fake medical degree. He carried the casual look in the film — printed shirts, summer jackets teamed up with denims — with so much ease.
