Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Balraj Dutt (born 29 July 1959) is an Indian film actor and producer known for his works in Bollywood, and a convicted criminal. Dutt, son of veteran Hindi film actors Sunil Dutt and Nargis Dutt, made his acting debut in 1981. Since then he has acted in more than hundred Hindi films. Although Dutt has enjoyed great success in movie genres ranging from romance to comedy, it has been the roles of gangsters, thugs and police officers in films that belong to the action genre that have won Dutt much adulation, with fans and Indian film critics alike referring to him as the "Deadly Dutt," for his larger-than-life portrayals of such characters. In a film career spanning more than thirty years, Dutt has garnered two Filmfare Awards, two IIFA Awards, two Bollywood Movie Awards, three Screen Awards, three Stardust Awards, a Global Indian Film Award and, a Bengal Film Journalists' Association Award to name a few. Dutt was arrested under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act in April 1993, due to illegal possession of a 9mm pistol and an AK-56 assault rifle. After spending 18 months in jail, he was granted bail in April 1995. In July 2007 he was sentenced to six years rigorous imprisonment, including his previous term of 18 months. The Supreme Court of India, in a judgement on 21 March 2013, convicted Dutt of illegal possession of arms relating to the 1993 Mumbai blasts case and sentenced him to five years imprisonment which is likely to get over on 25th Febuary 2016.
