Mumbai: A deceased fan of actor Sanjay Dutt reportedly left all her money to him. She had named him as the inheritor of the money in her bank locker and account in her will. And this gesture of the fan has left Dutt completely overwhelmed.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Malabar Hill resident Nishi Tripathi, 62, who breathed her last on January 15 after battling terminal illness, had willed the money from her bank account and locker to Dutt.
She had nominated ‘Film star Sanjay Dutt’ in her bank document and had mentioned Dutt’s Pali Hill home address. She had also written several letters to the bank to will several other belongings too.
Tripathi family’s lawyer and bank officers revealed the details of the will after Nishi’s prayer meet.
Dutt, who is moved by this gesture of the deceased fan – a complete stranger- refused to take even a single penny.
“We have communicated that Sanjay Dutt will be seeking no claim on the belongings and will adhere to any legal proceedings necessary to transfer the valuables back to the family,” Dutt’s attorney Jadhav was quoted as saying.
Dutt, who was then shooting in Kolkata for Saheb Biwi aur Gangster 3, said, “As actors, we are used to fans naming their children after us, chasing us down the street and even giving us gifts. But this has shocked me. I will not be claiming anything. I did not know Nishi and I am very overwhelmed by the entire incident to speak about it,” the tabloid quoted Dutt as saying.
