Bollywood's emerging star Vicky Kaushal played the character of Sanjay Dutt's friend Kamli' in film 'Sanju'. According to the makers, the character was a mixture of several friends, but was mostly based on Sanjay Dutt's real-life friend and BFF Paresh Ghelani. There are very few people inside and outside the industry who know about him since he does not belong to the glamour industry.
Paresh has made his Social media debut today. From his Twitter account, we conclude that he is an entrepreneur based in Los Angeles. Today, he shared a heartfelt post on his Twitter and Instagram handle along with a picture of himself with Sanjay Dutt.
In a long post, he wrote,
"its been many years of staying away from the social media, i finally give-in to embrace it. as i begin, here to you my brother @duttsanjay.
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.. To the mistakes we cannot undo, to the strength we cannot find elsewhere but, in each other.
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. How many of us can truly say that we've got friends who not only stand by you through thick and thin, but are as much a brother, a mentor, and your live conscience?
Sanju, you have been all that and more. There were moments I've relived from my own life - things I've forgotten, and things I'll never ever forget - on screen.
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. I know I share this sentiment with all friends and family close to him.
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 others 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"
And guess who introduced Paresh on the Social Media? Well it wasn't Sanjay Dutt, or Ranbir kapoor, or Vicky Kaushal, Or Rajkumar Hirani. To our amusement, it was R. Madhvan who introduced him to us.
He wrote, "FINALLY U R here Bro-Hey Folks pls welcome some1 who is more than a Blood Brother 2 me-my inspiration and my IDOL-THE REAL “KAMILII” from “SANJU”-the elusive,Limelight loathing N my “ Go 2” man 4 all issues-PARESH Ghelani-@impareshghelani .Sorry bro-The world wants 2 know you'
Ghelani was overwhelmed with the gesture and replied, "Maddy my brother.. how sweet can you be.. Thank you brother for such kind words and being so gracious. Feeling like a kid walking into a kiddergarten and someone is there to make it so comfortable and welcome. Love you brother...!"
The film 'Sanju' is currently doing wonders at the box-office and is all set to make new records. The film entered Rs 200 crore club within 7 days of release.
