Sanjay Dutt wife first married actress Richa Sharma in New York City in 1987; the couple had a daughter, Trishala Dutt. Sadly, within just two years of marriage, 32-years-old Richa was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and she died at her parents' home in New York in 1996.
Today we came across an old interview of Dutta's ex-wife Richa where she talked about his personal life. She also spoke about her husband's casanova image.
In 1993, when they filed for divorce and interestingly, that same year, Sanjay got arrested under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act.
At that time, actress Madhuri Dixit reportedly cut off all her connection from Dutta post these controversies. Richa had then said in an interview, "At every point in his life, he needs someone he can lean on emotionally. Like he was dependent on Madhuri. Now that she has ditched him, he is going to be a shattered man."
Richa's sister Enna Sharma also once opened up about Sanjay's controversial life and his alleged affair with Madhuri Dixit. In an interview with CineBlitz in December 1992, Richa's sister Enna Sharma blamed Madhuri for her sister's separation with Sanjay and was quoted as saying, "Madhuri is so inhuman...I mean, Madhuri can get any man she wants. How can she go for a man who's behaved in such a way with his wife?"
She further talked about Madhuri and Sanjay, "I know they are good friends because he's called her from our house. And he does talk to her brother and her sister here. But we never looked at it as if 'okay the guy's involved with Madhuri'. We're very open, we've always given Sanjay his space."
On the other hand, Sanjay or Madhuri never admited their alleged affair, he said, "There has to be something on between us for me to marry her. She was friendly from day one because she was not Madhuri - the star when I first worked with her."
