Sanjay Dutt is staying alone in his Mumbai residence as his wife Manyata and two children Shahraan Dutt and Iqra Dutt have been staying in Dubai since the lockdown. In an interview some weeks ago Dutt told the portal, “I miss them a lot, I connect with them frequently via video calls and enjoy talking to them. Time flies when I have my family with me virtually and it gives me immense joy to see them happy and dancing everywhere. Family is the greatest treasure than anything else, there is no frequently in this, you just connect when you feel like without counting the numbers, day, and time.”
