When wife Maanayata's B-grade film bothered Sanju

Hyderabad: Though Maanayata is a former actress and a star wife, not much is known about her. Before getting married to Sanjay Dutt, Maanayata earlier worked in B-grade Bollywood films and that apparently bothered possessive husband Sanju.

Born in Mumbai, Maanayata was brought up in Dubai. She moved to Mumbai with dreams of becoming an actress but she ended up doing some B-grade films and an item song in Prakash Jha's "Gangaajal".

She decided to quit films post coming close to Sanju whom she met through a common friend. Dutt was aware of Maanayata's filmography which has only one film, "Lovers Like Us". Maanayata gave up her one-film-old career to become Mrs Dutt as Sanju was not happy with what she was doing in her career.

Maanayata's past bothered Sanju so much so that he bought the copyrights of this film starring his wife in Rs 20 Lakhs. He was so in love with Maanayata that he put all his efforts to remove the CDs and DVDs of this film from the market.
