Sunil Dutt

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.
