Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt’s wife, who is named among those in the ‘Paradise Papers’ for parking their wealth in secretive tax havens abroad, says that all her financial dealings are declared as per legal requirements.

Dilnashin figures among the 714 Indian links named in the ‘Paradise Papers’, said the Indian Express in a banner story done as part of a global probe carried out by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). Maanayata Dutt was previously known as ‘Dilnasheen’ before she joined Bollywood. She did an item song in Prakash Jha’s film ‘Gangajal’

Her spokesperson said in a statement: “As per the requirements of provisions of Income Tax Act, 1961, all the properties, company or body corporate or shares in any company are declared in the balance sheet.”

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been named as part of the leaks, regarding shareholding in a Bermuda company acquired before the 2004 Liberalised Remittance Scheme kicked in.

A day before the big story broke, Amitabh had penned his thoughts on being named in the Bofors scandal and the earlier Panama Papers leaks.

On the Panama Papers of last year, he wrote in a blog post on Sunday: “We were asked for reactions, for responses, for justification or not, for replies to their investigative queries… Two instant replies were given out by us… Of denial and misuse of name. They were printed… but the questions continued.

“The fullest cooperation has been extended at all hours as dutiful citizens.. And even after, if there is any more query that needs to be addressed, we shall comply.”

Rajkumar Hirani his making one of the most ambitious projects of his film career- the Sanjay Dutt biopic. Ranbir Kapoor has stuck out his neck for portraying Sanjay Dutt on the big screen and trying to humanise him. Ranbir has undergone several physical transformations as well. Even Sonam Kapoor shot for an extensive portion in New York for the film. She is touted to play the role of Madhuri Dixit, who had a torrid affair with Sanjay Dutt in the 90s. However, one person is clearly a bit salty about her role and portrayal. That happens to be Maanayata Dutt, third wife of Sanjay Dutt.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, we hear that Hirani has not intimated her about the screentime her character will get, or what role she will play in the film. A nervous Maanyata, we hear, has been calling all and sundry (including Ranbir Kapoor), trying to get more info on the movie. The part of Maanayata Dutt will be played by Dia Mirza and ironically she only has good things to say about her role. “I believe Maanayata is someone who has a strong sense of self. Ranbir has transformed himself into Sanjay totally but I don’t think others need to do the same. I have interacted with her over the years and I think she is the anchor in Sanjay’s life. But I have perceived Maanayata through the wonderful writing (by Abhijat and Raju) that’s been written about her.”

The Dutt biopic has a stellar star cast comprising of Manisha Koirala playing Nargis Dutt, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Vicky Kaushal as a close aide of Sanjay. The film is set to release in 2018. Sanjay Dutt has led quite a controversial life right from being accused of holding illegal arms and ammunition in his home during 1993 Mumbai blasts to battling drug addiction and multiple marriages.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay DuttRanbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt

Ranbir Kapoor says the upcoming biopic on Sanjay Dutt will deal with both the highs and lows of the actor’s life.

Ranbir says Dutt has been very gracious in providing insights about his life story in an honest way for the biopic being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani. “He hasn’t been a hypocrite about it (his life). So it’s not a propaganda film trying to portray him as God or something. “We are trying to show a very human side of Sanjay Dutt, his perils, his downfall, his will to fight, his time in jail, terrorism charges, his drug phase, how he handled his mother’s death two days before the release of his debut film, his relationship with his father. These were human conflicts in
his life,” Ranbir told PTI.

Ranbir, who plays Dutt in the movie, says doing the biopic was daunting initially. “He is such a relevant person even today. He is so much
loved even today. He is controversial. But when you have Rajkumar Hirani as the director and Abhijat Joshi as the writer and the character like Sanjay Dutt, you are somewhere cushioned,” he says. From getting into the skin of the character to getting the body language right, the ‘Jagga Jasoos’ star had to put in a lot of hard work to get every aspect of Dutt correct. “Getting the look right is very superficial, it is easy as you have help from make-up and computer graphics. To show Sanjay Dutt as a human being, as a biopic only works when you show the human side of a person, and not the glories but the downfall as well (was not easy).”

Though Ranbir seems to have got the look right, he is extremely nervous about the film. “I don’t know if I have nailed it or not (referring to
the film). I was very inspired (doing this film). We have a few days left now for the film. It’s a very new me, so I am excited to see how the audience reacts. It should be out on March 30 next year,” he says. There were rumours that the ‘Khalnayak’ track will be
recreated in the biopic but Ranbir says that’s not true. “We have not touched upon the ‘Khalnayak’ phase. This film doesn’t talk about Sanjay Dutt the hero, but Sanjay Dutt’s life. We have touched upon his few films like the first one ‘Rocky’, ‘Munnabhai MBBS’,” he says.

The film also features Manisha Koirala as late Nargis Dutt, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Dia Mirza as Dutt’s present wife Maanayata Dutt
