MUMBAI – Sanjay Dutt is out of prison on a two-week furlough and the actor had happiness writ large on his face as he made his way out from Yerwada Central Jail.
The grin was on when Dutt reached his Pali Hill residence and was met by a hoard of photographers. The newly-trim actor happily flashed his washboard abs upon request. “I have lost nearly 18 kilos. If I lose any more weight, I will vanish,” the actor revealed.
The 55-year-old has kept in touch with his filmmaker friends like Rohit Shetty and Rajkumar Hirani through letters and had boasted about his new ‘8-pack abs’.
And the chiselled abdomen is not all that he has worked upon all this while. “I have written as many as ten scripts and will start working on them soon,” said Dutt.
When asked about his recurring stints outside prison he said: “I didn’t get any special treatment. I had applied for furlough five months back”.
According to a report, there was a provision for the two-week leave to be extended by a fortnight. So, will the actor be applying for an extension? Dutt’s laywer has said they will think about it later. The last time Sanjay came out of prison was in December last year when he was granted a month-long parole. It was extended by 30 days in January on account of his wife Manyata’s illness. Prior to that, he was on a month-long leave of furlough on medical grounds.
Sanjay Dutt’s lawyer Hitesh Jain has confirmed that Sanjay Dutt’s leave of furlough had been sanctioned and the actor was out of jail.
Dutt is currently serving a five-year jail term for illegal possession of weapons in a case linked to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. He is expected to return to prison on January 7.
