    Sanjay Dutt - Biography ........


    Sanjay Dutt (born July 29, 1959) is an Indian Bollywood actor. A two time Filmfare Awards winner, he is the son of Bollywood stars Sunil Dutt and Nargis. On 31 July 2007, Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to a jail term of 6 years for illegal possession of firearms acquired from terrorists responsible for the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.


    Biography

    Sanjay Dutt was born to one of Bollywood's most well-known star couples, Nargis Dutt and Sunil Dutt. He has two sisters, Priya Dutt and Namrata Dutt.
    While he was still in high school, Sanjay Dutt suffered from drug abuse, probably as he was unable to handle the pressure of being celebrities' child. His drug problems worsened his mother's health, who was already diagnosed with cancer. Nargis Dutt died a few weeks before Sanjay Dutt's first film, Rocky, was to be released. A heartbroken Dutt took to doing more drugs. His father sent him to a rehab center in Texas. But on reaching New York, Dutt suffered from a collapsed lung. After attending a rehabilitation program in the United States, a sober Dutt started working in films again.

    Success as an actor
    Sanjay Dutt acted in several successful films in the 1980s, including Vidhaata (1982), Naam (1986), and Hathyar (1989). He was reportedly director Subhash Ghai's first choice to play the lead in Hero (1983), but after witnessing Sanjay Dutt in his drug phase during the shooting of Vidhaata, Ghai picked Jackie Shroff in his place.

    Sanjay Dutt married Richa Sharma, who had nursed him back from his lung injury. A year later, the couple had a baby girl, Trishala. Just two months after Trishala's birth, Dutt learned that his wife had a brain tumor. After his wife succumbed to brain tumor, a bitter custody battle between Dutt and his in-laws over the custody of his only daughter ensued, which Dutt lost. Sanjay Dutt's sister, Namrata, married actor Kumar Gaurav, the son of yesteryears Bollywood star Rajendra Kumar.

    Sanjay Dutt resurrected his cinema career with movies like Sadak (1991) and Saajan (1991). He received his first Filmfare nomination for the best actor in a lead role, for the film Saajan. His breakthrough role came in Subhash Ghai's Khalnayak (1993), which became a huge hit and gave his career a boost. He received a filmfare nomination for the film.


     


    Arrest in 1993
    The release of Khalnayak (1993) happened to coincide with Sanjay Dutt's arrest in connection with the 1993 Mumbai Bombings. He was convicted of illegal possession of arms and ammunition, which were allegedly part of the consignment used in the bombings. According to the CBI case filed in a TADA court, it was alleged that the gangster Abu Salem and his men went to Dutt's house on January 16, 1993 and gave him three AK-56 rifles, 25 hand grenades, one 9 mm pistol and cartridges. He returned two AK-56 rifles, hand grenades and cartridges to Hanif Kadawala and Samir Hingora but kept one AK-56 rifle with himself. The rifle and cartridges allegedly formed part of the consignment, which was smuggled into India at Dighi Port on January 9, 1993.

    On learning that Mumbai police were looking to question Sanjay Dutt, his father asked him to immediately return from Mauritius, where he was shooting for a film. On learning of Mumbai Police's investigation about his involvement in the blasts, Dutt allegedly instructed his friends to destroy the rifle. According to the allegations, the rifle was destroyed by Yusuf Nullawalla, Kersi Adjenia, Rusi Mulla and Ajay Marwah in accordance with Dutt's request. Dutt then called the then Mumbai Police Commissioner of Police and informed him of his plans to return to India immediately, where he was arrested upon landing.

    Sanjay Dutt acknowledged that he personally knew the other accused, but denied the charges that he was involved with the larger conspiracy. He was arrested on April 19, 1993 (about a month after the blasts) and spent more than 18 months in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, before being released on bail.[1] During this time, he received considerable support from the Indian Film Industry, as well as his fans.

    After release in 1994
    Once he was released from jail, Sanjay Dutt married Rhea Pillai. In 2001, he was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate about alleged hawala deals in connection with the probe into the underworld-Bollywood nexus.[4] No charges were filed in this case. Also in 2001, an audiotape, allegedly containing a phone conversaton between Sanjay Dutt and gangster Chhota Shakeel, surfaced in media., based in Pakistan. In the conversation, Dutt allegedly complained about his fellow actor Govinda coming late to the sets, among other things.[1]
    Dutt won himself a fan following with a variety of roles, including gangster and comic roles. He was noted for his performances in several films including Vaastav (1999), Mission Kashmir (2000), Munnabhai M.B.B.S. (2003). He also set up a production company with director Sanjay Gupta. The company, called White Feather Films, produced several films, including Kaante (2002), Musafir (2004) and Zinda (2005).

    Sanjay Dutt and Rhea Pillai divorced in 2005, after spending the last few years of their marriage apart. Rhea later married tennis player Leander Paes. Sanjay Dutt's father, Sunil Dutt, an active politician, also died in May 2005.[5]. Sanjay Dutt's sister, Priya Dutt, contested and won the election for her father's constituency and became a Member of Parliament.
    Lage Raho Munnabhai (2006) earned Sanjay Dutt rave reviews. His latest release, Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007), also did well.

    2006 court verdict
    On November 28, 2006, A special TADA court found actor Sanjay Dutt guilty under the Arms Act of possessing an illegal weapon. He was cleared, however, of the charges of terrorism and conspiracy. Judge P D Kode said of the ruling in the open court, "During my reasoning I have not found him (Sanjay) to be a terrorist." Dutt's bail has been extended a number of times since the ruling and is still in progress.[6] While Sanjay was cleared of terrorism charges namely the TADA Act, one of his friends who transported the AK-56 guns for Sanjay namely Baba Chouhan was found guilty under TADA Act.[7] Sanjay's sister Priya Dutt is a ruling party MP.

    2007 arrest

    This article documents a current event.
    Information may change rapidly as the event progresses.
    In January 2007, a man called Abhimanyu Altekar filed an Intervener's Application, which opposed Sanjay Dutt's release in the 1993 bombings case.[8] Altekar had been acquitted by a sessions court, 16 years after he was arrested in a false case of planting a bomb outside the house of an Marathi daily editor in 1990. In his application, Altekar stated that one of the grounds of Dutt's application for seeking time to surrender was that he was the only earning member of the family. However, he was on bail for more than 12 years and had earned enough to make provisions for his family in case of a jail sentence. Altekar also argued that Dutt was mature enough at the time of buying illegal weapons, and did not deserve a reduced jail term. Though the intervener application filed by Altekar was rejected by the court, it raised doubt against of prosecution, the State Government of Maharashtra and the Indian Judiciary.

    Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to 6 years rigorous imprisonment on July 31, 2007 His aide Rusi Mulla, however, was awarded probation and is under observation for one year.

    The media reported that Sanjay Dutt's arrest put Rs. 150 crore of Bollywood business at stake. Sanjay Dutt was also fined Rs. 25,000 and his probation plea was rejected.

    In January 2007, a person by the name of Abhimanyu Altekar filed an Intervener's Application, which opposed Sanjay Dutt's release in the 1993 bombings case.[9] In his application to the court, Altekar argued that there was a great deal of contrast between how a court treated Sanjay Dutt's case and how a court treated a case in which Altekar himself was involved as an accused. In Altekar's case, he had been acquitted by a sessions court, 16 years after he was arrested in a false case of planting a bomb outside the house of an Marathi daily editor in 1990. Altekar compared this treatment with Sanjay Dutt's case and noted that one of the grounds of Dutt's application for seeking time to surrender was that he was the only earning member of the family and also that Sanjay Dutt was on bail for more than 12 years earning enough to make provisions for his family in case of a jail sentence.

    Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to 6 years rigorous imprisonment on 31 July 2007 by judge P.D.Kode.[10] His aide Rusi Mulla, however, was awarded probation and is under observation for one year. The media reported that Sanjay Dutt's arrest put Rs. 1.5 billion of Bollywood business at stake. Sanjay Dutt was also fined Rs. 25,000 and his probation plea was rejected. The actor, who had hoped to be freed under the Probation of Offenders Act, said with folded hands: “Sir, I made a mistake 14 years ago. Please give me some time to surrender." But the judge rejected the plea. “Act till the age of 100, I have only taken away six years," the judge said, even adding that he had liked the actor’s performances in films. Sanjay Dutt’s lawyer, Mr Satish Maneshinde, said the actor would appeal against his sentence in the Supreme Court. "We will appeal against the order in the Supreme Court... He has accepted it with a heavy heart,"[11]

    Yerwada Jail

    On August 2, 2007, Sanjay Dutt was shifted from Arthur Road jail in Mumbai to the Yerwada Jail in Pune.[12] Some journalists have noted that in 1922, Mahatma Gandhi was also sent to Yerwada Jail (in reference to Dutt's role as Munna Bhai in Lage Raho Munna Bhai which led to the popularization of the term Gandhigiri in India ) .[13] Since 2002, Yerwada jail has conducted a 'Gandhi Darshan' course in "Gandhian principles" which ends with the 'Gandhi Vichar Pariksha' exam. Dutt has agreed to take the course and the exam according to the director of the program, Asim Sarode.
