Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt, had succumbed to a heart attack in 2005, he was 12 days away from celebrating his 76th birthday when he breathed his last.
It was Sunil Dutt who had launched the Nargis Dutt Foundation in 1981, in New York, after his beloved wife’s demise. Sanjay’s sister, Priya Dutt, is actively involved with the foundation to date, now that it has an overwhelming presence in Mumbai.
