    Sanjay Dutt visits birthplace of his mother

    Kolkata (PTI) For actor-politician Sanjay Dutt, it was a journey down memory lane on Sunday when he visited the birthplace of his mother Nargis, famous Bollywood actress of yesteryears.

    "I am infused with fond memories of my mother while visiting her birthplace in Kolkata. It also thrilled me with a nostalgic feeling. It's a very emotional moment for me. I thank the people of Kolkata," he said.

    Nargis, earlier known as Fatima Rashid, was born on June 1, 1929 at her Indian Mirror street residence in Central Kolkata.

    The dilapidated two-storeyed house now has lost all its glory but is full of old memories that still draw people's attention.

    Nargis was the daughter of an Allahabad-based Muslim singer Jaddanbai who introduced her into films as child actress Baby Rani. Her brother Anwar Hussain also became a film actor.

    The actress ruled the silver screen for nearly three decades since the early 40s. Her legendary beauty and talent captivated audiences in films like "Awara", "420" and "Mother India" to name a few. She became a social worker and a member of the Rajya Sabha after retiring from films.
