Soul Brother – I understood Sanjay Dutt like none else because I have a story like him
Debi Prasad Padhi is a freelance writer & an avid animal and nature lover who resides at Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Has come up with his latest book Soul Brother – I understood Sanju like none else because I have a story like him.
This book has a special connection with Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt.
Soul Brother is an allegory to a person whose thoughts, feelings, and attitudes closely match those of another, and this is a real-life story of a common man, who had a very topsy turvy uncommon life, with striking similarities to the life of actor Sanjay Dutt.
In the own words of the author– “I probably understood Sanjay Dutt and his actions in a way, nobody else can. As I grew up and turned over the pages of a film magazine, or watched entertainment news, there was his life unraveling before me which was so much similar to mine. His attitudes and reactions to situations were so similar to mine, as well as the subsequent result of it, that it made me always feel, he was a brother from another mother and father.
A deep connection is what I felt with him over the years, without ever meeting him, hence I dedicated the book to him and decided to release it on his birthday this year, as a token of love and respect for him. I will feel honored if he reads it someday.”
