Question: In an earlier interview you said - 'I don't want name or fame. I just want freedom...'
Sanjay Dutt: Yes! I was talking about my case, as you know. I just pray that the case gets over and I get my freedom. There are too many restrictions on me right now, including restrictions on travel. I have to take permissions. It's been on for 20 years now, which is a very long time. I wish and pray to God that either I get acquitted or I get free. Freedom is all that I want.
Question:How have you been coping?
Sanjay Dutt: Family always sticks by you along with a couple of friends who you can count on your fingertips. But I don't blame anyone. Lots of things have happened and I don't want to get into details.
Question:Has fatherhood made you more disciplined?
Sanjay Dutt: I think once you reach your 40s, things change a lot. A person matures and looks at life differently. Especially, after you have kids and a family. I have definitely changed for the better.
Question:Besides work, what else has been on your mind lately?
Sanjay Dutt: Besides work, it's health.
Question:Do your twins watch your films?
Sanjay Dutt: Shahraan and Iqra are too small to really understand but yes, sometimes they do. Sometimes they watch the shots and get excited.
Question:What has Trishala been up to these days?
Sanjay Dutt: Trishala has studied forensic science and I hope she sticks to that. I think it's a very honourable job where you are there with an agency, trying to help innocent people and I just hope she keeps to that. I can't travel, so I can't meet her that often. I think one day when I can, I will definitely meet her more often.
Question:Your resolution last year was to try and quit smoking. Any luck?
Sanjay Dutt: I had said I will try! To be honest I have to be really strong. One day I will really quit. I have already quit drinking.
Question: You are playing a cop in your new film.
Sanjay Dutt: Yes, my role is that of a police officer who comes to a certain town and fights for his rights.
Question:Munnabhai is also on the anvil.
Sanjay Dutt:Munnabhai is about to start and I am really looking forward to that. I have two more films with Rahul Aggarwal, which are yet to be announced.
