It’s no hidden secret that Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit were a ‘thing’ in the 90s and everyone knew about their torrid affair. After working together in several films like Khalnayak, Saajan, Thaanedar, etc, Sanjay and Madhuri fell in love with each other. According to the industry insiders, the two were pretty serious about each other.
They first worked together in the film Khatron Ke Khiladi (1988) and their last outing together was Mahanta (1997). In one of her interviews, Madhuri once fondly talked about Sanjay and said, ''My favourite partner is Sanjay Dutt, he’s a real joker…and his stories make me laugh all the time, but he is also a gentleman. Sanju is a fantastic person. He has a loving heart and, in contrast to the widely held view, a good sense of humour. He is the only guy who makes me laugh all the time. He does not play games. He is open and uncomplicated.''
However, Sanjay was arrested for the illegal possession of arms in 1993, under TADA and was sent to jail. As per rumours, when Sanjay got arrested, Madhuri decided to end their alleged relationship and disassociate herself from him. She did not even go to jail to meet him, not even once, as per reports.
The two have now moved on and found love again. While Sanjay is happily married to Maanayata Dutt, Madhuri tied the knot to Sriram Madhav Nene.
Now, after almost 22 years, we will see the alleged ex-couple once again on the silver screen, all thanks to Karan Johar. Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit will be seen sharing screen space in the highly-anticipated period drama, Kalank. The teaser of the film is finally out and we witnessed a glimpse of Madhuri and Sanjay together. The teaser hints at a connection between Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri’s characters.
