Last month in an interaction with Indian Express, Rawal spoke at length about how that note was a “divine intervention” for him to sign Sanju. Rawal recently shared the note, tweeting, “the letter delivered exactly 5 days before my birthday and on the same day Dutt Saab passed away. The role offered in 2017 jan – 12 years later.”
Talking about the letter, Rawal had earlier told Indian Express, “On May 25, 2005, I was shooting for a movie and I called up home to say that I will be late today. And during the shooting, we got to know that Dutt Sahab (Sunil Dutt) has passed away, so I called up my wife and said I will come a bit late. She then told me that there’s a letter for you from him (Sunil Dutt). I asked her what the letter was and she said it’s for wishing you a happy birthday. I told her that my birthday is on May 30, which is five days away but she said the letter is for you and she even read it to me. I was so surprised.”
