Bollywood Actor Sanjay Dutt purchases Painting by Jaipur’s artist Suvigya Sharma


Suvigya Sharma paintings are very much in demand these days. Recently, none other than Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt purchased Jaipur based artist Suvigya Sharma's Ganpati painting at a Fund Raiser Art Exhibition in Mumbai on June 11.

To celebrate its 35th anniversary, the Nargis Dutt Foundation had organized a Fund Raiser Art Exhibition titled 'Pigment' on June 11 in Mumbai. A string of renowned artists and photographers participated in the event to showcase and sell their art for a cause. Well-known artists like Udhav Thackeray, Priya Dutt, Rajiv Menon, Ajay De, Brinda Miller, Sudarsk Olwe, and Jaipur's Suvigya Sharma were few among the number of artists who participated in the event.

Suvigya Sharma was bowled over by Dutt's humble approach. When asked about his experience meeting Sanjay Dutt, Suvigya said, "He is so grounded and humble that it was an experience of a lifetime to communicate with him. The moment Mannyata Dutt saw the Ganesha painting she expressed her ecstasy, and hubby Dutt decided he would take it."

"I am feeling extremely elated. It was already a matter to rejoice that I could showcase my work on such bigger platform. To add to it the exhibition was for a noble cause. The cherry on the cake was that none other than legendary actor Sanjay Dutt himself purchased my art work", says Suvigya from Jaipur.

The sale proceeds of the exhibition will go to the foundation. "It is a matter of pride that our Rajasthan art was so appreciated at one of the prestigious art exhibitions. Through the sale of the art works, the trust will be enabled to continue their work in the fields of cancer care as well as for the upliftment of rural India", said Sharma.
