He may be one of the highest-paid actors in Bollywood, but when it comes to money issues, Sanjay Dutt prefers to hand over the reins to his wife. Manyata Dutt is now taking financial decisions for Super Fight League (SFL), the actor’s co-venture with Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra.
“Since Sanjay is caught up with multiple film projects, Manyata has been making monetary decisions on his behalf. This has come as a huge breather for Sanjay, since he doesn’t get a lot of free time,” says an insider.
The Agneepath actor had admitted in a previous interview that Manyata was more adept at managing finances than him. “But Sanjay is still looking into all the creative aspects of SFL, including the first fight night (on March 11),” the insider adds.
The league marks the entry of mixed martial arts (MMA) tournaments in India. At the launch, actor Bipasha Basu is scheduled to perform alongside singer Mika and percussionist Sivamani. A host of Bollywood stars are expected to attend. Shilpa, who is pregnant with her first child, will also be there.
When contacted, Manyata says, “SFL is our baby. So, all of us are doing our bit to make it a success. And we’ll also do whatever it takes to make the launch function one of the biggest live events India has ever witnessed.” Sanjay is currently working on several film projects including Race 2, Zilla Ghaziabad and Munnabhai Ki Aatma Katha.
