Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt was jailed for six years on Tuesday for getting guns from gangsters involved in India’s worst bombings, ending an epic trial that transfixed the country with tales of terror and revenge. Dutt, an immensely popular star known for his macho anti-hero roles and troubled private life, was found guilty of acquiring illegal weapons
I won’t go into the details as there already are over 400 news articles doing the rounds of the web but IMHO, it was just about right. He got what he deserved. I know that people won’t agree with me but I feel that one has to look into the events from a 1993 standpoint and not from 2007! We all know how affable and gentle or Sanju baba is but that has more to do with age mellowing him down rather than an innate softening of the heart or the demeanor. Back in 1993, he was parley to a deadly weapons transaction, and though it stands as a small event in comparison to the bombings, it still is punishment-worthy. May he be resilient enough to overcome this ordeal which, again IMO, may be much more tougher that the past fourteen years!
