Sanjay Dutt has lived a very controversial life since the beginning. The actor has made headlines for major reasons like his drug addiction, relationship issues and for illegal possession of weapons in his house. Some interesting and controversial events of his life are shown in Rajkumar Hirani's latest hit Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role.
During the 80s, Sanjay Dutt was in news for his love life, girlfriends and affairs with the leading ladies of Bollywood. His relationship with actor Tina Munim was quite sensational. The duo had acted together in his debut film Rocky (1981).
During his early days in his career, Sanjay Dutt was badly addicted to drugs that created a rift between him and his family. In an interview with Stardust, the actor was asked if it was only drugs or also Tina the reason for the misunderstandings between him and his family as his father Sunil Dutt and sisters didn't like her. The Saajan actor denied Tina creating any difficulties for him and his family and their equation in this throwback interview.
"Tina has never ever tried to take me away from my family. She has always been the one to guide me and force me to go back home to my Dad and sisters even after a fight. Frankly, every family has its problems. And since ours is a very close-knit family, we do have our occasional tiffs and arguments – nothing serious though. And all of us take turns to sulk. After my mother’s death, we all were quite shattered and each one of us we trying to get out of it in our own way. All of us had become ultra sensitive and very vulnerable. Actually, there was no major misunderstanding between us. It’s just that a lot of bullshit was being spread about me fighting with my father and him breaking my jaw bone, etc. To date, I have yet to have to guts to fight with him!" said Dutt.
When asked if he allows Tina to dominate him and take decisions in his personal and professional life, Sanjay had said, "I am an emotionally weak man. I have always needed a strong influence over me. My mother was that influence. After her death, Tina has taken her place. She dominates my life, yes, but I have not allowed her to have any say in my career. Tina has never tried to stop me from working with any of her rivals. I have only one film with Poonam because I have been offered only one film with her. And where Ranjeeta is concerned, I would love to work with her too, but no one has wanted to pair us together so far."
The actor was questioned about the rumours that were going around at that time that Sanjay is happy as Tina Munim's career is going down. About the same, the actor had answered, "Frankly, I have never interfered in my girl friend’s career, except in the matter of her clothes. I am very possessive about her. She is mine and I don’t like her to expose herself on screen. That’s exactly where my interest in her career ends. If I am indifferent to her flops and hits, it doesn’t mean that I am selfish enough to be delighted when her career is not doing well, only because that would make her sit at home. If I wanted her to stop working, I can ask her to do so. I don’t want her to quit for another three years, for that’s when intend to get married. I want her to enjoy life and do whatever she wants to do till then."
Tina Munim's linkup news was also in the news at the time while she was dating Sanjay. Was Sanjay turning a blind eye to all the link-up news?  He answered, "My girl has been linked with so many men that it is physically impossible for any woman to cope with so many of them in such a short time. I have not defended her blindly. Each time I’ve heard or read about her, I’ve gone insane with anger – but most of the time, she has managed to convince me that what I’ve heard is not true. I love her too much not to believe her. One has to trust somebody sometime, and I trust her. I always tell her, ‘Today, I am quietly taking everything I hear about you because I don’t want you to start screaming and getting suspicious the moment you listen to stories about me.’ I obviously expect her to be as understanding  with me as I am with her today."
Sanjay Dutt and Tina Munim reportedly broke up because of the former's drug addiction, drug abuse and a drinking problem.
