Film on sports, next?

Sanjay Dutt may be busy juggling his role as a producer, actor and now an entrepreneur, but despite his hectic schedules, the actor's not complaining about having to multi-task. And those close to him reveal that Sanjay himself credits it to his rock solid support system in wife Manyata, who takes care of the business aspect of his production house, but also to his passion for films and sports.

"When you feel passionate about something, it doesn't feel like work anymore," he'd said. Having ventured into the sports league with friend and actor Shilpa Shetty and her businessman husband Raj Kundra, the actor has been busy of late in working towards making their first tournament, to be held next week, a success.

Though a business venture, insiders reveal that Sanjay is in it not just for the money, but for the love of sports itself. "Not many are aware that he's extremely fond of sports, but that's a fact. His dad, the late actor, politician Sunil Dutt too had always been very encouraging when it came to sports. In fact, that's what drew him in to the venture with Kundra in the first place. Personally too, not only does he follow sports, but is also known to watch sports channels till late in the night. He's also hired a personal trainer to train for mixed martial arts," says a source.

The actor, who's at present busy with 'Department' apart from the other films, however, will not let his acting career take a back seat for either sports or film production. "For Sanjay, acting comes before everything else. He's really passionate about films," says a source. Apparently, there've been talks of taking his love for films and sports to the next level by making a film on sports or martial arts. Though nothing's been confirmed yet, insiders reveal that Sanjay is open to the idea for sure.
