With Rati, Sanjay has done multiple films including Johny I Love You, Main Awara Hoon and Mera Faisla, during the initial years of his career and the actress remembers her co-star very fondly. “We all started our careers around the same time, Sanju, Bunty, me and Poonam. We were all from a similar age group. We did a lot of work together and also had a lot of fun together with our families when we were on long outdoor shoots in Manali. We used to do barbecuing and cycling and play board games and music. Those times were simple yet beautiful. My parents always accompanied me to the outdoor shoots, so food, music and laughter were a staple. Sanju is the same fun, quiet and caring person today as he was all those years back. Wish him loads of happiness and health. Happy birthday Sanju,” she smiles. ALSO READ: Happy Birthday Sanjay Dutt: Some Unknown Facts About The Enigmatic Superstar
