There’s nobody else like you: Sanjay Dutt remembers mother Nargis on birth anniversary

Actor Sanjay Dutt on Tuesday paid tributes to his mother and legendary actor Nargis Dutt on her 92nd birth anniversary.
The actor shared a series of old family pictures on Instagram to mark the special day.

“There’s nobody else like you. Happy Birthday Maa,” Sanjay Dutt wrote in the caption.
Nargis, whose real name was Fatima Rashid, is regarded as one of the most celebrated actors of Indian cinema and has films such as Andaaz, Barsaat, Awaara, and Academy Award-nominated Mother India to her credit in a career spanning three decades.
She won the National Award for best actress for Raat Aur Din (1967).
She married her Mother India co-star Sunil Dutt in 1958. Together they had three children: Sanjay Dutt, politician Priya Dutt and Namrata Dutt.
Nargis died of pancreatic cancer on May 3, 1981, three days before Sanjay Dutt’s debut film Rocky hit the theatres.
