Sanjay Dutt once helps Vivek Oberoi to impress his school girls

The girls went ballistic and I felt like a king – Vivek Oberoi

Actor Vivek Oberoi recently revealed an interesting memory of his school days when he took Sanjay Dutt to a girl’s school to impress girls when he was studying in a boarding school in Ajmer.

As his film ‘Shootout At Lokhandwala’ completed 14 years on May 25, 2021, Vivek recalls basking in second-hand glory for months after the incident.

Talking to ETimes, he told, “It took me down memory lane, to the days when I was studying in a boarding school at the prestigious Mayo College in Ajmer. My father was shooting close by in Jaipur and decided to surprise me by visiting me in school. It was an amazing surprise to see dad but what left me shell-shocked was seeing the long-haired Sanjay Dutt pop out of the car. He was shooting with dad and decided to come along to say ‘hi’. Even back then, he was the most charming dude ever. I remember my mauka pe chauka moment, I requested baba bhai if he would come with me for ten minutes to see the Mayo girl’s school right across the road. It was epic!”

“When he walked in with me, the gates opened. The chowkidars were just standing there agape. The girls went ballistic and I felt like a king! For months after that day, I was still basking in his borrowed glory. The real star had gone but I became a mini star in school. Even when I got into serious trouble for sneaking out of school to see a Sanjay Dutt movie, first-day first-show, I was smiling on the inside. He was my icon,” he further added.

He also shared the incident when Sanjay Dutt jokingly asked him, “So how many girlfriends did you make because of me?,” on the set of Shootout At Lokhandwala.

Vivek made his debut with the film Company (2002) which was directed by Ram Gopal Varma.
