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 !

what do you say ?
