Sanjay Dutt was notorious for his abusive behaviour back in 90s. And though the actor is now said to have turned over a new leaf, a new video of him abusing photographers standing outside his home on Diwali has emerged on social media and naturally gone viral, Hindustan Times reported.
The video is from the night the actor and his wife Maanyata Dutt had hosted a party on the occasion at their residence.
In the clip, Dutt, who appears to be drunk, is seen asking the paparazzi to go home as it is Diwali. After a beat, he uses an abusive word and asks them to leave. He goes on to ask them if they want to celebrate the festival with their families. When one of the photographers tells him that they have been instructed by their bosses to work, he uses more swear words.

The user was referring to the Rajkummar Hirani directorial, Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay. The film went onto become one of the biggest hits of 2018. However, it was heavily criticised for whitewashing the actor’s image.
