Trishala has spoken about her relationship with father Sanjay Dutt and growing up without her parents.

Trishala Dutt is in the habit of posting pictures on Instagram on a regular basis. Seeing them, one would be tempted to think that like many other star kids, she too is keen on a Bollywood career. Turns out, she has no interest in Bollywood.

Trishala took to the new feature added to Instagram called Ask A Question and answered a host of questions posed to her by other Instagrammers. What’s more she answered them with honesty and clarity. Trishala, who recently completed her Masters in Psychology from Hofstra University, New York, answering to a question if she was keen on Bollywood and acting, said a frank ‘no’. Her answers to the more vexed daughter-father relationship, she calmly added that it was actually quite normal, like any parent-child relationship. When asked who was she like between her mother and father, she said a bit of both—attitude and temper was like her dad while her gentleness and loving side from her mother.

Trishala is Sanjay Dutt’s eldest child and was born in New York. Her mother Richa Sharma was an aspiring actor before she married Sanjay in 1987. Trishala was born in 1989. Richa was diagnosed with brain tumour within two years of her marriage and moved to New York for cure and later succumbed to it in 1996.

Trishala’s relationship with her father has seen its ups and downs. There was much speculation as to why Sanju, the Raj Kumar Hirani directed film on Sanjay’s controversial life, made no mention of Richa and Trishala. The latter too refused to speak about the issue.
