When we fell in reel love

Sanju has a Place in Ingrid's Heart

First, he was not more to me than any other actor. Agreed, an actor whose films always were a treat to watch. I loved his intensity in Mission Kashmir, his wild look in Khalnayak, the sweet expression in his innocent eyes when he said "Sorry!" in Hum Kisise Kum Nahin, his softness in Parineeta. But what actually changed my attitude towards Sanju was an interview - the Devil's Advocate with Karan Thapar on November 5, 2006. This was amidst the pronouncement of the verdicts in the TADA case and at a time when Sanju still had to fear that he might be declared guilty as a terrorist (which, thank God, did not happen). There he sat - quietly talking about how he still felt connected to his late parents, how he was still leaning on them, getting his strength from them. He remembered how during his time in jail, he told his father to lit a candle at Diwali, he'd do the same in his cell, and the two flames would connect them both. I was deeply touched. And when in the end, asked what he would do if the verdict would be against him, he calmly answered "I will face it - I have to", I knew that from this moment on Sanju had got a place in my heart which he'd never leave again - not the actor, but the human being Sanjay Dutt. - Ingrid Zellner
