The Outlook Group has launched the leading celebrity news magazine People in India, and the magazine's first issue carries a touching account by Trishala Dutt of her meeting with her father, Sanjay Dutt. Father and daughter met in the Bahamas recently where Sanju was shooting for his film, Blue. His wife of four months, Manyata was also present.
"You remind me of my youth. I love you beta," Sanjay told his daughter, when she rushed into his arms in the Bahamas.
In the Bahamas, Trishala spent some time alone with her dad during which he asked about her college work and showed great interest in the projects she was working on. Trishala, on her part, went all out to shower her dad with affection.
The teenager, who is a second year student at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, has also expressed a desire to join films. She has had her portfolio shot and aunt Enna has promised to help launch her film career. Trishala has yet to speak to her dad about her movie plans.
Trishala is the daughter of the late actress Richa Sharma, Sanjay's first wife. Richa died of cancer on December 10, 1996 and Trishala has always lived with her aunt (mother's sister Enna) and her grandparents in Bayside, Queens, New York.
"He seems to be happy and if he is happy, then I'm happy for him. If he found what he needs in her (Manyata), then that's great," said Trishala soon after spending some time with her dad.
