After bollywood star , Sanjay Dutt has been sentenced to serve another 3 and 1/2 years in Illegal Arms Case verdict, there has been loads of politics and drama . Actor,Salman Khan, who is close to Sanjay Dutt reportedly visited him first after returning from the US and meanwhile , while addressing the media, Sanjay Dutt aka Sanju Baba literally started crying and then hid his face on his sister’s shoulders.While many claim this was a sympathy stunt,a few are taken a back and somehow do not want Sanju Baba to go to jail and be pardoned. The actor has declared he is ready to serve the jail and requested the media to leave him alone with his family and friends till he surrenders.
Well, even Salman Khan has cases of hunting down blackbuck in Rajasthan and hit-and-run case(2002) on his name. As both these actors have dared the law of the land with their deeds , they may have many common things to talk about ! May be !! 🙂
Srinivasan,the President of BCCI in an interview hinted he saved MS Dhoni from being axed when the selectors were wanting so.Indirectly, he mentioned that as the president of BCCI he has the right to take the last call. 🙂 (thats the reason Dhoni is still the captain 😉 )
While Sanjay Dutt has been cleared of being involved in any terrorist plotting and/or activities related to the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts incident , he has been found guilty of possessing AK 56 rifle in his house and this ammunition belonged to the consignment which was a part of arms and ammunition which was illegally smuggled to India for conducting the bomb blast! Amid, former police commissioner who had investigated the bomb blast says dropping Sanjay Dutt off TADA (on request of Sunil Dutt to the police department and the government to show mercy)charges was department’s biggest mistake.
Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to serve 5 years for keeping illegal arms and as he has already served 1 and 1/2 years previously , he has to serve another 3 and 1/2 years to complete his sentence. Meanwhile, there are voices which are rising in favour of him sighting he has already suffered a lot since last 20 years . Influential voices from the government, keepers of law,other politicians and Bollywood wanting Sanju Baba to be spared has been rising !
Justice Markandey Katju,Film Director, Mahesh Bhatt,Jaya Bachchan and many big names want Sanju Baba be spared and there are indeed provisions in law which may ease things for ‘Munna Bhai’ of Bollywood !
Well, being his fan, it would be great to see him out of the mess but is it fair to be favouring him just because he is a celebrity ? There are hundreds of cases sited by the media where commoners suffering jail terms are eligible to be excused of serving jail any further !
Well, is he yet not a VIP ? Bollywood actors of his status are generally given VIP treatment throughout the nation. Aren’t they ? Moreover he is the son of a Nawab-Nawab Pataudi and now a Nawab himself by default! 😉 . And to add on it happened at Lucknow Airport, of all ? It is a city of Nawabs and Kebabs !! 😀 Is that how they treat a Nawab ? 🙂
It is good news for Indian cricket fans(like myself) to see promising youngsters like Pujara and Shikhar , takeover responsibility of seniors like Yuvraj and Dhoni and super-seniors like legendary Tendulkar and Sehwag ! 😀
Look who is talking ? Should Mr Malik rather not sort out his country’s security issues where bomb blasts are a daily business before asking India to give security to Shah Rukh ? And is Hafiz Saeed,a terrorist, also a Pakistani Minister to offer people relocation assistance in Pakistan ?
Well, is it not astonishing to hear Shah Rukh Khan complain ? Is he not the actor who tops the charts of Bollywood Heroes since over a decade now (thanks to his fans ,majority of whom are logically non-Muslims)? Do his fans give a second thought about whom he prays before being his mad fans ? When has he been questioned for being a Muslim , in India(American airport is not in India where he was held) ? And whenever and if ever he has been targeted by political parties for ‘being Muslim’ ,is he the only Bollywood Star who has been targeted for political mileage (publicity stunt)? Even Amitabh Bachchan has been targeted for being a North Indian .
There is no denying that artists have been soft targets for Indian Political Leaders but this is not restricted to any religion or caste. This happened to Salman Rushdie,Ashis Nandy,Deepa Mehta,Tasleema Nasreen, Amitabh and Aamir and so many more. Is he the only one who has been targeted ? Then why making a fuss about it ? Bollywood actors have been respected by the Indian society regardless what religion they follow and what caste they belong to and Shah Rukh Khan himself is one of the biggest example of such respect and love.
