Actor Sanjay Dutt aka Sanju Baba is known for his on screen persona. Whether he’s playing the role of a deadly gangster, a ferocious drug lord or a funny man, Dutt has carried out all his roles with ease. And, his looks for each of the characters he portrayed on screen have been as convincing as they could get.

As the actor turns 58 today, we bring you the best of his on-screen looks that eventually became style statements. Check them out.

Saajan (1991)

Playing the role of a physically disabled poet Aman, Dutt rocked long tresses, creating a trend among young men at the time. Playing the role of an introvert, the actor mostly flaunted shirts in solid colours and effortlessly charmed the audience.

Khalnayak (1993)

Possibly one of the sexiest bad guys on screen, Ballu remains Dutt’s most remembered role till date. While playing a fearsome terrorist, he exuded the intensity that his character demanded. Despite unkempt mane, rough beard and shabby demeanor, Dutt looked every bit attractive.

Vaastav (1999)

Raghunath Namdev Shivalkar — the gangster role won Dutt a National Award for his on-screen portrayal. Donning mostly a white kurta pyajama teamed with gold ornaments, with slickly gelled hair and a red tilak, Dutt’s character was loosely based on the life of Chhota Rajan.

Munnabhai MBBS (2003)

Only Dutt could make the tapori’ look so stylish. He played the role of a local goon, Murli Prasad Sharma, who becomes a doctor by attaining a fake medical degree. He carried the casual look in the film — printed shirts, summer jackets teamed up with denims — with so much ease.

Zinda (2006)

For the role of Balajeet ‘Bala’ Roy, Dutt underwent a complete makeover for his part in the film. With rugged beard and unkempt fringes, the actor convincingly played his part where his character is imprisoned for 14 years without any clue, and is suddenly released.

Son of Sardar (2012)

Sanjay Dutt opted for a turban look for Son or Sardaar.

Dutt’s father, Sunil Dutt’s bandit king avatar from dacoit drama Mujhe Jeene Do (1963), inspired his look for the role of Balwinder Sandhu. From his clothes, wavy long hair and makeup, Dutt’s character bears so much resemblance to his father’s role in the film.

Agneepath (2012)

Actor Sajay Dutt’s ferocious look in Agneepath.

Dutt won many hearts with his ferocious looks as Kancha Cheena. Dangerous, ruthless and menacing, Dutt pulled off the role of a drug lord with his deadly bald look. The ear piercing made his look all the more fierce — not to forget, the massive tattoos on his arms.
