 March 8, 2018: A 62 year old fan of Sanjay Dutt willed all the money and property to the actor before dying. Dutt wrote a letter to the Bank of Baroda at Walkeshwar, saying that the contents of a safety deposit vault bequeathed to him by Malabar Hill resident Nishi Harishchandra Tripathi be handed over to her family members. 

Interestingly, Dutt had no idea who Tripathi was, till a phone call from the police on Jan. 29 informed him that she had died a fortnight earlier and had willed the money from her account and her bank locker’s contents to him.

The police have concluded that Tripathi, who passed away aged 62, was a big fan of Dutt. Just how big a fan she was of the actor came as a shock to her family members, when they discovered scores of letters issued by Tripathi to her bank, willing all she had to the actor.

The bank locker has remained unopened as legal formalities were on, even as Dutt, through his attorney Subhash Jadhav, made it clear that he did not want to have anything to do with Tripathi’s money or property, and that it should go to her family.

Tripathi, who died on January 15 after battling a terminal illness, was a homemaker residing with her 80-year-old mother Shanti, and siblings Arun, Ashish and Madhu. The family resides at Triveni Apartments at Malabar Hill, where an apartment measuring around 2,500 square feet costs upwards of a billion rupees.

Tripathi’s family realized she had willed all her belongings to Dutt only a day after her prayer meeting when the family’s legal advisor informed them about the development.

Subsequently, a representative of the Bank of Baroda’s Walkeshwar branch shared with Dutt’s attorney and Tripathi’s family members a detailed letter and nomination form that she had submitted to the bank a few months before her death. The bank said the nominee mentioned was “Film star Sanjay Dutt” and the nominee’s address was that of Dutt’s Pali Hill home. It has also come to light that several valuables were also willed to Dutt via letters to the bank.

Dutt shared, “As actors, we are used to fans naming their children after us, chasing us down the street and even giving us gifts. But this has shocked me. I will not be claiming anything. I did not know Nishi, and I am very overwhelmed by the entire incident to speak about it.”

Dutt was in Kolkata for a film festival when a police officer called to give him the news. The actor had been shooting for “Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3.”
