Sanjay Dutt, one of the biggest Bollywood actors Sanjay Dutt can be seen talking about late Shiv Sena party leader. He talked about the one thing he learnt from him as he said, "I just learnt one thing is that, love your country. And be tough enough and honest enough to speak the truth. And that's what he did, all his life." The video then cuts to real life videos of the iconic leader as he is giving one of his memorable speeches with his powerful voice echoing in the background. 

While his persona and powerful words are enough to give anyone goosebumps, Sanjay added that what he meant to him in particular. He said, "He was for the masses but for me, Sahab was not a leader. I mean, for me Sahab was a tiger." Well, it is certainly great to hear that the actor holds the leader in such high regard.
