However, as he grew older, Sanjay Dutt formed an addiction to drugs. Sanjay Dutt: The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood’s Bad Boy reveals that Nargis Dutt did not understand the changes that her son was going through. Despite the obvious signs of drug addiction, Nargis Dutt refused to believe that her son could be a drug user. 

In fact, according to the book, Nargis Dutt would even try to hide the facts from her husband, Sunil Dutt. Moreover, she would also defend her son and tell people that he never drunk alcohol or touched drugs. According to Sanjay Dutt's sister, Priya Dutt, Nargis Dutt was in such deep denial that she once told one of her friends that her son might be gay, as he was constantly locked inside his room when his friends were over.
