Sanjay Dutt Recalls Journey From Being Branded As CHARSI To Guy With ‘Kya Body Hai’-DETAILS BELOW
Sanjay Dutt has had a tumultuous life and having experienced it all, the actor’s public image was compromised leading to him being branded as ‘charsi (junkie)’ after he returened from the rehabilitation centre.  

Now, in a recent interview, actor Sanjay Dutt has recalled when people branded him a junkie. Sanjay has always been vocal about his struggle with drugs and the time he got involved with various chemical substances. 

Speaking with Ranveer Allahabadia, Sanjay recalled how he thought that doing drugs will make him look ‘cool’. He said, “I was very shy, especially with women, so I started it to look cool. You do it and you become a cooler guy with the ladies, you talk to them."

He added, "Ten years of my life I was in my room, or in the bathroom, and not interested in shoots. But this is what life is, and that’s how everything changed. When I came back (from the rehab), people used to call me charsi. And I thought, galat hai yeh (this is wrong). People on the road are saying this. Kuch karna padega (I have to do something about it). So I started working out. I wanted to break though that. And then from charsi, it became a guy with swag and ‘kya body hai’.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Sanjay Dutt has been basking in the success of his recent release KGF Chapter 2. The film also stars Yash, Raveena Tandon, Prakash Raj, Malavika Avinash, John Kokken and Saran.

The film follows the story of Rocky (Yash), an orphan rising from poverty to become the king of a gold mine. The first film came out in 2018. Directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Hombale Films, the multilingual film was released in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi on Thursday.

Sanjay will be seen next in Akshay Kumar starrer-Prithviraj which will also star Manushi Chillar, Sakshi Tanwar and Sonu Sood. He also has Shamshera in the pipeline, which will also star Vaani Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor.
