sanjay dutt dead fan wills all her property money to his name Sanjay Dutt wrote a letter to the concerned bank saying that the valuables be handed over to the family.

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was both surprised and shocked after receiving a phone call from the police on January 29. He was informed that a 62-year-old fan had died a fortnight ago and left all the money from her account and bank locker to Sanjay.

While the police have concluded that the Malabar Hills resident was a big fan of Sanjay Dutt, just how big a fan she was came as a shock to her family members. Imagine their surprise when they discovered scores of letters issued by the fan to her bank, willing all she had to the actor. Sanjay even wrote a letter to the Bank of Baroda at Walkeshwar, saying that the valuables bequeathed to him should be handed over to the family members.

The bank locker still remains unopened as legal formalities are underway, even though Dutt (through his attorney Subhash Jadhav) has made his stance clear.

The fan died on January 15 after battling a terminal illness. She was a homemaker residing with her 80-year-old mother and siblings. The family was made aware of her will a day after her prayer meeting.

The bank revealed that the nominee mentioned was film star Sanjay Dutt and the nominee’s address was that of Dutt’s Pali Hill residence. It has also come to light that several valuables were also willed to Dutt via letters to the bank. Sanjay Dutt remarks, “As actors, we are used to fans naming their children after us, chasing us down the street and even giving us gifts. But this has shocked me. I will not be claiming anything. I did not know Nishi and I am very overwhelmed by the entire incident to speak about it”.

Adding to the statement, Dutt’s attorney Jadhav said, “We have communicated that Sanjay Dutt will be seeking no claim on the belongings and will adhere to any legal proceedings necessary to transfer the valuables back to the family.”

On the work front, the actor has been busy shooting for Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3.

    I bet she did not leave a penny for the ,say, the faithful caretaker who took care of her and served her till her last breath. Any right thinking person wud have and maybe gifted the property to an orphanage , thus benefiting so many poor children. She gifted a wealthy star who is a hunk. I Hate these kind of people. So unevolved.

      Real madness on the part of the woman, but a noble gesture by Sanjay Dutt.

        Most Film stars treat fans like dirt when you try to visit them at their place. While outdoors, they act as if they pour love on all. Supporters are crazy/stupid that they don't realize reality. In this case, I appreciate Sanjay for this kind gesture.

          Remember Bombay blasts. Sanjay Dutt got away with massacre. He is a jihadi terrorist.

          This is a drama. Everything well planned and executed to script. This could have been done in silence. A big PR boost and image makeover. Sanjay Dutt is a terrorist supporter, a rowdy, a goon with Dawood support. He got away with murder. Because Indians have slave mentality. Indians don't understand national security. Many filthy rich in India are anti nationals. Our judiciary is corrupt.

            How the filmsters mesmerize the people who have no touch with reality . No doubt filmsters join politcs and decide matters of importance to society . The guy who romps with the young belly in movies throughout youth and partes hard in night now becomes the ruling class . Filmsters and cricketers ( like imran khan of pakistan ) are eating the minds of people who have no idea about reality . Films and cricket are the opium of the indian masses . Next India will be ruled by a group of filmsters and cricketers .
