On a recent chat show, Sanjay Dutt got really really candid and revealed things that we would never imagine that he would talk about, ever! And there really is nothing simple or normal about Sanju Baba’s life as we very well know. The most surprising revelation was that of his addiction to drugs that he had to deal with for nine years of his life.
“Someone asked me to try it once, I tried it and then it remained with me for the next nine years of my life. I always used to be in my own world. From heroin to cocaine, I tried everything that was there in the books. I used to sniff and take pills. In the last year before my treatment started I even used to inject drugs into my body” was what Sanjay Dutt said talking about it!
So how did it end for him after the nine years? This is how Sanjay Dutt did it, with the help of his dad.. “One day I had taken heroin and went to sleep. Woke up after sometime and was feeling very hungry so asked my servant to get me something to eat. Seeing me he started crying and said that ‘baba you’ve woken up after two days.’ When I heard this I was shocked. I went and saw myself in the mirror. My face had that drenched look and I knew it that if I don’t stop myself now I will probably die. So I went to dad and told him to save me. He sent me to a well known hospital and soon after that I was sent to America to a rehabilitation center.”
