Vivek Oberoi has revealed that he once took help from Sanjay Dutt to impress the ladies at his boarding school in Ajmer. At the time of the said incident, Sanjay Dutt had come to Ajmer to shoot a movie with Suresh Oberoi, Vivek’s father.
“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 mauke 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,” Oberoi said in an interview to a leading daily.
“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 added.
