Sanjay Dutt denies pursuing political career


Sanjay Dutt has been hitting headlines after Rashtriya Samaj Paksh (RSP) party founder and Cabinet Minister Mahadev Jankar stated that the actor will re-enter politics next month. However the 60-year-old actor officially denied his association to any party with a statement which read, “I will not be joining any political party. Mr Jankar is a dear friend and brother of mine and I humbly wish him good luck for his future endeavors.” The actor’s family has been closely involved in politics, as his father, late Sunil Dutt, had a short stint as a Minister, while his sister Priya Dutt has been a Member of Parliament on a Congress ticket. The party which Sanju was rumored to join, RSP, is a part of BJP-led ally.
