Recently, Paresh had also written fondly about his friendship with Dutt and was all praise for the film 'Sanju'.
He wrote, "After watching the film 'Sanju' I was numb, numb with limitless emotions. I wanted to just hug him, hold on to him and cry. Cry endlessly to the years we had lost, to the years we stood by and witnessed this roller coaster called life and the irrevocable loss of loved ones. Now, the entire world shares our story, and the story of the man who's made me a part of his and he has thought me how to get up after every fall. It's hard to convey how many different emotions I'm feeling at this time. Sanju, you have been all that and more. "
"Sanju is an ode to falling, rising, making mistakes and learning, flaws, imperfection - everything that defines the core of friendship. It is, more importantly, a relentless pursuit of life with all its shades," he added.
Talking about their friendship, he wrote,"Our friendship has been exhilarating, volatile, wild and rewarding. Our journey has often been clouded in disbelief and doubt, wondering if we will make it till the end or will fall into the labyrinth of tragedy and controversy. But here we are united, unbreakable and ready for life.
Sanju - Thank You for being a part of my life. Thank you for making me part of the Pride where we watch each other back; Thank you for always having the protective blanket over me; Thank you for the journey you've dragged me on lovingly and have taught me how to fight the adversity, however it may come. Look past the flaws, the women, the controversies, I love you, and now I can share it with everyone. You always have been, you are and you always will be the greatest friend, brother that anyone can ask for.
Keep roarrrrring... tiger!! #sanju #friendship."
