Trishala Dutt finally opens up about dad Sanjay Dutt’s arrest
Trishala Dutt finally opens up about dad Sanjay Dutt’s arrest, her Bollywood aspirations and why she wasn’t there by her father’s side in Mumbai when he surrendered to serve his three-and-a-half year jail sentence, in her latest blog entry.
While most sympathised and expected Trishala to speak about her father’s arrest in the past few months, she kept quiet. She acknowledged the good wishes that came to her from Sanju’s fans on a microblogging site and asked everyone to pray for him and the family. However, she didn’t react to the court’s verdict and kept a safe distance from the media as well. She did not come to Mumbai from NYC as was speculated either. In her latest blog entry, posted on June 5, Trishala tells her side of the story.
(Excerpts from the blog entry) – “I know you all know are aware what happened to my dad and if you aren’t aware, he was sentenced to a 3 year jail term… I’ve been harassed as to why I’m so silent on the subject but all I want to say is this…
I’ve become an elder sister to my twin siblings Iqra and Shahraan. It’s up to me to be strong for them and set a good example, being the eldest daughter of the house. There’s no such thing as having an ’emotional breakdown’ anymore. I love my father to death and I will always be his blood, his first-born, his everything.
I’m just sick of people making stupid assumptions as to why I wasn’t there in India by his side during the time of judgment, why I’m silent, why am I posting pictures on Instagram acting all happy and all that other bullSh*t.
Did it ever occur to some of your ‘curious’ minds that maybe my father told me NOT to come?? My family is going thru an extremely difficult time right now and I haven’t been seen in Mumbai since Jan 2007. There was so much media when I came there at that time, I didn’t want to create such a drama especially at this time. My father and I have been in the tabloids since 2007 when that whole fiasco with Maanayata happened, which wasn’t even true! Then there was heat on both of us when I wanted to be a part of Bollywood at one point (very stupid, stubborn decision of mine but I’m glad I don’t want to be a part of it anymore, I was young and wasn’t thinking with my head, I was rebelling against a lot of things and found out who I really am and what I want later on) then it was said my father and I were not getting along and a lot of untrue nonsense was going on.
Now, since so much has happened in 6 years with the media between dad and I, it was best if I stayed in NYC and not gain the wrong type of attention during this difficult time with my family. Some of you are so quick to judge, it’s ridiculous and really annoying.”
