My sisters are busy with their lives: Sanjay
The buzz is that your friends and family are flying in to Cape Town for your birthday?
I donít want any celebrations until Amar
Once he returns to Delhi, Iíll celebrate my birthday with him. I heard from the grapevine here that the unit of No Problem is planning a small get-together for my birthday. But when I asked them they said there is no party. My friends are flying down though. Paresh is from Chicago. Iíve known him for the last 25 years. Weíve grown up together. Then there is Mac from Los Angeles, another old and dear friend. Then there is Imran Ismail who is already here in South Africa. These are three of my best friends who will be here on my birthday.
Have you invited your sisters?
Yes, I have. The day I turn 50 is important for me. And Iíd like my family to be near me. Thatís the way my parents wouldíve wanted it. I wish they could be here. But I guess my sisters are busy with their own lives. No matter what misunderstandings we had, Iíd like to sort them out on my 50th birthday. Itís sad they canít be here. But Iím sure theyíve more important things to do.
Itís very difficult to imagine Sanju Baba being 50.
At heart Iím still Baba. But when I look into the mirror, itís a reality. And I do feel 50, but not old. Iíve been in the film industry for so long and itís been a long inning. In the last 18 years, Iíve been fighting for my freedom and I feel the burden of the struggle now. I want to walk into any consulate and get my visa. I want my passport to be with me. I want to visit any country I want. Most importantly, I want the court cases to end. I want to be free.
Your mentor, Amar Singh, is recovering?
Heís not my mentor. Heís my brother and a part of my family. Amar Singhji stands by his friends and we should stand by our friends. As soon as I get my visa, Iíll fly down to Singapore to spend a couple of days with him. Iíve been betrayed by my so-called friends many times. But this time, I feel Iíve found a true friend. Iíve known him for 16 years. He has always stood by me and seen me through the worst situations in my life.
Why do films for emotional reasons?
I canít be ruthlessly professional. But I have given up doing films for emotional reasons.
What about Shortkut?
Anil Kapoor and I go back a long way. Heís an old colleague and he just called me and asked me to do it. Look, you got to be there for people. May be nobody was there for me, but what do? Iím like that only. Family and close friends do matter. I know.
One wish on your birthday?
Freedom. Otherwise the biggest gift God has given me is my wife Maanyata. She has stood by me and supported me unconditionally. Iím very lucky to have her by my side.
What about a baby?
If that happens, my happiness would be complete.
