Sunil Dutt's life at a glance

Sunil Dutt, known for his stellar performances in classics like Mother India, Waqt, Padosan, and Sadhna, left an indelible mark on Indian cinema. His romance with actress Nargis, which began dramatically on the sets of Mother India when he rescued her from a fire, became one of Bollywood's most cherished love stories. The couple married on March 11, 1958, and together they had three children Sanjay, Priya, and Namrata Dutt.

The Dutt family faced significant challenges, especially with Nargis's battle with pancreatic cancer, which claimed her life on May 3, 1981.

In addition to his cinematic achievements, Sunil Dutt made significant contributions to Indian politics. He joined the Congress party in 1984 and served as a Member of Parliament for five consecutive terms, representing the Mumbai North West constituency until his death. Sunil Dutt's final film appearance was in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S, where he shared the screen with Sanjay.
