Sanjay Dutt: Trishala wanted to be an actress and I wanted to break her legs

Sanjay Dutt has been very vocal about not wanting his daughter to be a part of Bollywood.

While other star kids are gearing up for their debut, Sanjay Dutt's daughter Trishala is far away from the spotlight in New York. The actor, who is making his comeback with Omung Kumar's Bhoomi, talked about how he does not want her to join Bollywood.

"I've invested a lot of time and energy to put her in a good college and she has done very well. She has specialised in forensic science... And I think that's a great thing to do," he told PTI. Sanjay also talked about how difficult it is to become an actor, and Trishala will have it even tougher, since she has been brought up in the US. "Even if she wants to join the industry, she has to learn Hindi because American (English) will not work here. It is not easy to be an actor," he said.

When Sanjay was asked if he finds any similarities between his reel-life daughter in Bhoomi and Trishala, he revealed, "Yes, there are similarities but Trishala wanted to be an actress and I wanted to break her legs, which I'm not doing here."

Trishala had gone on record to say that she has no Bollywood dreams and wanted to enter the film industry only to be closer to her father. In fact, Trishala recently took a dig at Bollywood's love for plastic surgery on her Instagram account.
