Twitterati goes up in arms against the actor after a video of him abusing the media emerged online
Mumbai: A viral video of actor Sanjay Dutt abusing journalists at his Diwali party has taken over the Internet and angered many.
Right after the controversy surrounding his biopic Sanju had subsided, the video has raised questions once again if the movie had indeed been an attempt to 'whitewash' his image. In the clip, the actor slurs and asks the reporters go home to celebrate Diwali with their family amidst several expletives. When one of them tells him that they have been asked by their bosses to do the job, the actor proceeds to use more expletives.
Few months back, Biopic of this guy made 300 Crores.— ☄️ (@Vipultweets_) November 8, 2018
The video seems to have angered the netizens as they took to their social media accounts to criticise his disrespectful behaviour. Some even joked that the actor would need a sequel to Sanju to improve his image once again after this fiasco.

#SanjayDutt proves umar badi hone se Ghanta akal nahin aati— Örïgïñål Çðþ¥ÇåT 🐱 (@angie_tribecaa) November 10, 2018
I purposely didn’t watch Sanju cause I knew what a looser and a total waste of space this guy is but I remember my friends telling me he’s not such a“bad guy”after watching Raju Hirani Sponsored Rin ki Safai
Meanwhile, others have come out in support of the actor saying that the abuses were hurled not towards the reporters on the site but the bosses who were making them work on a festival.
#SanjayDutt never abused the Press. He was generous and sympathetic to them, he was abusing the cruel slave-driving Bosses, who make their staff slog on a day like Diwali, Keeping them away from their families and said he’d stand up for them, in the only language he understands. pic.twitter.com/1JFbtCp4Uz— Anuj Prakash (@Anujmeister) November 10, 2018
