The veteran actor impressed everyone with his role in the movie Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. He essayed the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt and nailed it with his versatile acting skills and getting into the skin of the character. The movie is based on the journey of superstar Sanjay Dutt. The best part of the movie was surely the bond of Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Dutt that Rajukumar Hirani has portrayed with an emotional quotient.
Now there is a buzz across the internet that just hours before his death, Sunil Dutt had written a special letter for Paresh Rawal. The letter is written on a letterhead with Sunil Dutt’s stamp, who was also a Member of Parliament at that time. The letter reads, "Dear Paresh Ji! As your birthday falls on 30th May, let me wish you all the happiness, prosperity and good luck in life, May God shower his choicest blessings on you and your family." The letter was dated May 25, 2005, and Paresh Rawal's birthday falls on May 30.
In an interview with The Indian Express, speaking about the letter Paresh said, "On May 25, 2005, I was shooting for a movie and I called up home to say that I will be late today. And during the shooting, we got to know that Dutt Sahab (Sunil Dutt) has passed away, so I called up my wife and said I will come a bit late because Dutt Sahab has passed away and I am going to his house. She then told me that there is a letter for you from him (Sunil Dutt). I asked her what the letter was and she said it is for wishing you a happy birthday. I told her that my birthday is on May 30, which is five days away but she said the letter is for you and she even read it to me. I was so surprised. Why would Dutt Sahab send me a birthday letter five days before my birthday? And we have never exchanged any holiday greetings in the past – be it Diwali or Christmas – so why would he write to me?"
The veteran actor revealed that this letter was one of the reasons that prompted him to take up the role of Sunil Dutt and in the film, and give total justice to the man, as well as the role.
