B-Town shocked as Sanjay Dutt sentenced

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has been sentenced to five years of imprisonment for the 1993 blasts case. The actor, who has already served 18 months, will have to surrender within 4 weeks to serve the remaining term of 3 and a half years.  The court has also ruled that he cannot be released on probation, and cannot shoot films while he serves his term.

According to Sources, Maanyata, Sanjay’s wife, was expecting this sentence and was mentally prepared to face the news. Apparently, she had even told Sanjay to be prepared for a harsh sentence, and assured him that she would be strong and take care of their twins in his absence.
