On October 7th, Sanjay Dutt (who is on a 14-day parole), hosted a Mata Ki Chowki at his place. Hosted by Sanjay Dutt and his wife Maanyata, the event at their Pali Hill residence was attended by the couple’s close friends. The guest list included T Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar, Eros’ Sunil and Krushika Lulla, actress Sophie Choudry, Bunty Walia, Apoorva Lakhia and Dutt’s brother-in-law Kumar Gaurav with his wife and children.
One of Sanjay Dutt’s friends said “He lost a lot of weight in jail, almost 17 kilograms. He has not looked so fit in years. I’d love to see Sanju in an action film right now.”
Another guest comments on Sanjay Dutt’s presence at the event and says “”He spoke a bit to all his guests. But just pleasantries! I wanted to ask him what was it like inside, and how he was coping. But there was no opportunity. I think he’s coping with jail very well. He’ll come out stronger, fitter. And there will be no stopping him.”
The event was a lively one, as one guest says. “It was a very intimate prayer meeting. Unlike the other Maata Ki Chowkis at the Dutts’ residence which are held in their home’s compound, this time it was held inside their home, so the singing and chanting was ear-splitting.”
