As per reports, Sanjay Dutt is the first mainstream to receive the Golden Visa.

The visas have a validity of either 5 or 10 years and are renewed automatically.

The Dutt family regularly share pictures from their trips to Dubai. In fact, last year when the lockdown had been announced in India, his wife Maanayata and kids Iqra and Shahraan had been in Dubai. It was only after the restrictions were lifted that he was able to visit his family.

The actor had also wished the Crown Prince of Dubai on the birth of twins recenltly. 

Meanwhile, on the professional front, Dutt will next be seen in the movie KGF: Chapter 2. He plays the role of the antagonist in the multi-lingual action film starring Yash, and his character of Adheera has been raising anticipation among the viewers. The film was earlier set to release in July, but there is no clarity on  the release amid the COVID-19 restrictions in many parts.
