Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanyata Dutt stepped out to cast her vote in Mumbai on Thursday (April 24) and Mrs. Dutt was unrecognizable.
Maanyata, who has always stood by her husband’s side, seemed to have lost a lot of weight due to her illness. The mother-of-two has also chopped off her long tresses and looks unrecognizable. In the picture, Maanyata was seen showing her ink-stained finger wearing a simple red suit with white dupatta.
Her husband, Sanjay Dutt who is currently in Yerwada jail was constantly out on parole last year. When certain voices objected to this, the reason for his parole became public – his wife’s illness.
Maanyata was last seen in public on March 22 (above), when Sanjay Dutt returned to Pune’s Yerawada Jail from his Mumbai residence. At that time Maanyata looked visibly healthier and even had her long locks.
Prior to that, Maanyata was also spotted partying (below) at the screening of Shahid Kapoor’s ‘R.. Rajkumar’ in December, which led to speculations that Maanyata was well. It was also reported that after the event, Maanyata, along with Shahid and Ayushmann Khurrana, went for Krishika Lulla’s birthday.
However, Pune Divisional Commissioner Prabhakar Deshmukh said that the reports of Maanyata’s illness were verified before Sanjay Dutt’s parole was approved.
Maanyata was diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour in her lungs in December last year after she complained of chest pain and weight loss. Maanyata had to undergo surgery twice. We wish her a full and speedy recovery.
