MUMBAI—Sanjay Dutt celebrated his relation with Amitabh Bachchan and Vidhu Vinod Chopra as he marked the completion of 11 years of “Eklavya: The Royal Guard.”

Marking the occasion, Dutt tweeted, “Working with @SrBachchan sir is always a treat! #11YearsOfEklavya #VidhuVinodChopra.”

Dutt shared a wonderful relationship over the years with Bachchan, doing films like Dutt’s own home productions “Kaante,” and “Shootout At Lokhandwala,” “Deewaar-Let’s Bring The Heroes Home,” “Ek Ajnabee,” “Aladin,” “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin” and Bachchan’s home production “”Viruddh.” One of the earliest films of Bachchan was Dutt’s father Sunil Dutt’s “Reshma Aur Shera”(1971), which marked the debut of Sanjay Dutt as a child artiste in a qawwali sequence.

Dutt cherishes all his work with Bachchan, and his mother Nargis was sent a recommendation letter from then-prime minister Indira Gandhi for Bachchan as a struggling artist when he came to Mumbai in the late 1960s.
