This is a piece of news that was a secret for almost three days. It’s been reported that Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt finally tied the knot with his girlfriend of two years, Manyata, according to Hindu rituals in a simple wedding ceremony in Mumbai.
“I am very happy. I thank my fans for their positive support,” he told reporters.
“I have no words to express my happiness,” Manyata said.
While Sanjay wore a traditional long jacket embroidered with golden thread, Manyata was dressed in a gold sari with a red veil covering her head.
The guest list was quite small, and included only close friends like producer Bunty Walia, Nitin Manmohan and Suniel Shetty with wife Mana. The notable absentees were of course, Dutt’s sisters and close friend Sanjay Gupta.
It has been learnt that Dutt presented Manyata a diamond ring worth Rs 40 lakh as wedding gift. “She was spotted wearing sindoor at a school function on Saturday evening,” a source said.
The wedding reportedly took place at Manyata’s friend Pradeep’s house.
So, who’s that girl, that we’ve been talking about and who finally managed to put the proverbial ‘Gangster’ of Bolywood, in love?
Manyata did a dance number in one film and has since apparently not pursued a film career. I think she’s really pretty and they look nice together.
Dutt was sentenced to six years in prison for possessing weapons but was acquitted of more serious terrorism and conspiracy charges. He has already spent nearly 20 months in jail since he was arrested in 1994.
This is his third marriage. Last month, the actor finally completed the divorce proceedings with ex-wife Rhea Pillai. Before that Dutt had been married to actress Richa Sharma.
