Third Time Lucky?

February 25, 2009

Sanjay Dutt and Manyata celebrated their first year anniversary on 11th February 2009.  Their marriage turned into a circus from the word go.

What was supposed to be romantic wedding in Goa turned ugly. First Sanju’s sisters refused to attend it suspecting Manyata of nefarious intentions. Then Manyata was supposed to be a still married woman. And married women minus a divorce cannot marry again but can do all that marriage demands minus a certificate.

They spent their honeymoon in courtrooms and then married again in Mumbai.


This is the third time the actor walked round the altar vowing everlasting love.

His first wife was the late Richa Sharma whom he married in 1987 right after he got out of a hangover. They had a baby girl Trishala but separated when Richa was diagnosed with cancer. She passed away soon after.

09split22 He married model Rhea Pillai right after he    got out of jail in 1993. She soon found    comfort in the Art of Living and in the arms  of Leander Paes.

Then love happened with Dilnawaz Shaikh aka Manyata, who did an item number in Gangaajal. After skulking around like a couple of teens they finally stepped out of the closet and tied the knot in 2008.

And those who never quite made it to the altar –

Tina Munim. The actress chucked Dutt for Rajesh Khanna whom she chucked for Anil Ambani.


His affair with  Lisa Ray remains shrouded in doubt.


His hush hush relationship with Madhuri Dixit stayed hushed when she traded Khalnayak for a heart surgeon.


Nadia Durrani dated him, almost married him but in the end left him.
