Sunil Dutt (1929-2005)

Hindi star and director born in Khurd, Jhelum Dist. (now Pakistan) as Balraj Dutt. Former announcer on Radio Ceylon. Best known in his early career as the outlaw hero of [[Mother India]], playing the son of his future wife Nargis. Then shifted to the image of the cleancut modern youth in late 50s socials ([[Bimal Roy]]’s Sujata). Continued with both images throughout his career. Also played remarkable comedy roles, e.g. the bumbling lover in Padosan. Best work with B.R. Chopra. Recently, like Dilip Kumar, specialises in larger-than-life roles (Shaan). Directorial début, Yaadein, is an overtly experimental one-man show. Launched his son Sanjay Dutt to Hindi stardom with Rocky. Became MP representing Congress (I) in North Bombay constituency in 1979, playing a heroic role in the 1993 communal riots in Bombay.
