Ever since Bollywood’s battlemented star Sanjay Dutt casually mentioned to the media that he would like to contest Lok Sabha elections due next year, hypothesis is rife in the tinsel town, and also within the political circles, about his political dreams. As IANS earlier said, the buzz about the star to join the Samajwadi Party spread after state unit president Abu Asim Azmi said media that the party will give him a ticket for battling the election if he makes up his mind joining them.
Azmi uttered this after the national general secretary of the party Amar Singh called on Sanjay Dutt and wife Manyata at his residence in Mumbai last week.
But the macho man himself has not yet specified that which political party he may seek membership to, if at all he wishes, or when.
Whichever the party Dutt selects to join, he will prefer to be fielded in his father, Sunil Dutt’s Mumbai northwest parliamentary constituency – now fostered by his sister Priya Dutt, also as a Congress MP. But some resident associations of the constituency declared Sunday they will oppose his candidature for the Lok Sabha elections in a vehement manner.
