Trishala Dutt, the elder daughter of actor Sanjay Dutt, is quite a social media celebrity. Sanjay Dutt’s daughter Trishala Dutt, with his first wife Richa Sharma, is a permanent resident of New York while Sanjay Dutt resides in Mumbai with his wife Maanyata and their twins Shahraan and Iqra.
In an old interview of Sanjay Dutt from 1993, in which he had talked about being separated from his first wife, Richa and blamed her for their separation. He admitted that he was very annoyed with his wife and his daughter, Trishala, who used to called him ‘uncle’ rather than calling him ‘dad’.
Sanjay Dutt quoted saying, “I was very angry and questioned Richa about it. Even if I’m not around is it not Richa’s duty to keep my memory alive in my child’s mind? I told Richa ‘If I was in your place and the situation was reversed, I would have made sure to keep your memory was kept alive.’ She never did that”
He further added, “I remember she was in hospital dying and her parents questioned me, ‘Okay now what about Trishala? I countered, ‘What about her?’ They said they would like to keep Trishala with them. He said’ Why are you talking like that? Richa is still alive. She’s not evn dead. Your Priorities should lie with your daughter.
Sanjay Dutt refused to fight for the custody of Trishala. He said, “How much to fight? I am tired. I don’t want the custody of my daughter right now. But whatever happens, I want the liberty to meet her anytime I want.”
“I feel a lot but I realise somewhere down the line when she grows up, she is going to ask her mother, ‘Where’s my father?’. I will be there for her then. But even at that time, I won’t get back with Richa.”
Sanjay Dutt also revealed that Trishala doesn’t know anyone from the family and he would like to bring her to India., so that she could know more about her dad’s family.
Trishala is on a very good term with her dad Sanjay Dutt and his third wife, Maanayata Dutt. Trishala was asked how it feels to live without parents, she had said, “It’s fine, I guess. I never lived with them to begin with (I did but I was so young I don’t remember much) so I can’t really answer how it feels living without them.”
