The Supreme Court has ordered a five-year jail sentence to actor Sanjay Dutt in the 1993 Bombay blasts case. However, Dutt has already completed 18 months in jail, so he will have to serve a three-and-a-half-year term only.
According to a leading newspaper when he was walking free, the thought of being sent back to prison always haunted him. Sanjay’s friends and colleagues from the industry are upset over this and took to Twitter to share their views on the conviction. Here’s what they had to say:
Worked with @duttsanjay in #shootoutatlokhandwala n #ungli . There are very few gentlemen in the industry and he is clearly one of them.
I have never met a man with a bigger heart than sanjay dutt. i am not qualified to question the law of the land.. but it feels really bad.
Extremely saddened by the news of Sanjay Dutt’s sentence.. These are tough times.. Strength and prayers to him & his family.
Having Worked with Sanjay Dutt in three films n 10yrs in d industry one thing I can say for sure is that he is the nicest n d most loved.
@duttsanjay has served time & paid the price mentally for 20yrs. We respect the law but for those who knw & luv him this is shattering.
Saddenned n shocked with the news about Sanjay Dutt’s Jail sentence.Strength to him n his family.
I am numb, I don’t know what to say. Sanjay Dutt is not a criminal. This is too harsh a decision.
I am amazed how ranters obfuscate issues. Sanjay Dutt goes to jail for possession of illegal arms. Not for the Mumbai blasts.
Shattered to Hear about @duttsanjay …Love Him…He is Like My Elder Brother & has a Pure Heart of Gold. God give Him Strength #SanjayDutt
Heart Broken. Just heard that Sanjay Dutt has to go to jail for five years. I expected mercy! Alas, it did not happen.
Sanjay Dutt is a very good Man who doesn’t deserve this sentence. God give him the strength. Prayers and more with his family.
Reportedly, his wife Manyaata Dutt said that she always knew Sanjay would go to prison again.
Do you think Sanjay Dutt is innocent and doesn’t deserve this punishment?
