His autobiography titled The Best Mistakes of My Life was launched last year in October. The book takes the readers into Sanjay's world of films, family, his near-death experience and more. If reports are to be believed the actor will announce his second book shortly.
In an earlier interview with PTI, the Dhund actor commented on the friendships in the film industry in the current times. He said, "The value of friendships among the current reigning lot pains me. It is superficial. It's just to show courtesy. The extra hugs and the taps on the back, you can smell hypocrisy from one mile away, that they don't have anything in common."
