Elected for the fifth time to the Lok Sabha, this former cine star has built quite a reputation for himself as a parliamentarian too.
Known for his commitment to social causes, Dutt has been an active campaigner for his party and even otherwise for causes like social empowerment. Apart from working arduously for his constituency, Dutt's work for cancer patients is exemplary.
Doggedly pursuing the cause of the dreaded disease among the poor and the needy, he has been serving them ever since he lost his wife, yesteryears' popular actress and social activist, Nargis, to the terminal disease almost two decades ago.
He has also been a major source of inspiration to many a filmstar in Mumbai, who follow in his footsteps, selflessly helping out the downtroden in the slum areas of the Maharashtra capital city.
