Nargis Dutt, a renowned actress and Sanjay Dutt’s mother
Nargis Dutt featured in many hit films like Mother India, Shree 420 and others. It was during Mother India she grew close to her now husband Sunil Dutt, who actually played his son onscreen. Despite being a strong, independent woman, she given up on her career to take care of her children. On the other hand, her children, Namrata, Priya and Sanjay were very close to her. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent treatment for the same at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. After she returned to India, her condition deteriorated and was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai. On May 2, 1981 she went into coma and died the next day. Sanjay Dutt was devastated after mom Nargis Dutt’s death.
Before leaving for New York for treatment, Nargis wrote a letter to Namrata to take care of Sanju (Sanjay Dutt). She wrote, “Please look after Sanju, see that he does not get mixed up with those silly boys again. He is too stupid in his head, he does not realise what he is doing and know it is going to hurt him.”
