1993 Bombay blasts: how a gun changed Sanjay Dutt's life

MumbaiThe 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case has haunted actor Sanjay Dutt for 20 years now. On March 20, when the Supreme Court sentenced him to five years in jail, the actor's nightmare returned.

Mr Dutt was riding a wave of success, with megahits like Khalnayak and Saajan, when arrested in 1994 from the Mumbai airport.

In his confession that he later retracted, the actor said mafia don Abu Salem visited his home in January 1993 with Samir Hingora and Hanif Kadawala, proprietors of Magnum Video and alleged close associates of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

Mr Dutt said they had brought three AK-56 rifles with ammunition, and he kept one. The gun, he claimed, was to protect his family as they had received threats during the Mumbai riots that followed the demolition of Babri mosque in December 1992.

Mr Dutt said that after he heard of the Mumbai serial blasts and Samir Hingora and Hanif Kadawala's arrest, he asked his friend Yusuf Nulwalla to destroy the rifle.

The actor's arrest followed. He was charged under the stringent Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act or TADA for conspiracy in the blasts and receiving weapons from Abu Salem. 

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who visited Mr Dutt at Mumbai's Arthur Road jail, says, "Very few people go through this kind of a phase and are able to pull themselves out of it. I saw him at the Arthur Road jail. That was a broken Sanjay Dutt. It was impossible to fathom then that the man will be able to mend his fractured life. What he has done today is a miracle."

Mr Dutt was able to leave jail after 18 months. For his release, father Sunil Dutt, a loyal Congress politician, turned to Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray for help.

A bigger relief came 11 years later. A TADA court, in November 2006, observed that Mr Dutt was not a terrorist and had acquired the gun for self-defence.

Mr Dutt was acquitted under TADA, convicted under the milder Arms Act and handed a six-year jail sentence. The Supreme Court granted him bail later. 

But there were murmurs that Mr Dutt got away because of political pressure allegedly exerted by his family. 

Retired senior police officer YC Pawar, who handled the initial investigation in the serial blasts case, says: "I think there was political pressure. How is it that all the accused get convicted in one kind of case and only one is tried under a different one?"

Defence lawyers have also questioned why the CBI did not challenge Mr Dutt's acquittal. But friends like Mahesh Bhatt say the actor has paid the price and hoped he would be let off. 

There's a lot at stake for Bollywood -- three films, PolicegiriZanjeer and Peekay, starring the actor are under production, and nearly Rs. 70 crore is riding on him.

Is this true abt Thakrey supporting him Shocked

Yes it is.


Bal Thackeray and his connection with Bollywood

Mumbai: 2012 has been a black year for the whole nation after demise of top-notch politicians, legendary filmmakers and actors.Adding to the list is another great politician who influenced Maharashtrians for years. Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray(86) passed away on Saturday due to cardio-respiratory arrest at his residence, Matoshree.

 

He will be remembered for his remarkable journey from cartoonist to a successful politician. His demise is not only a bigg loss to the political system but has sent shock-waves among Bollywood celebrities too who have seen Thackeray as one of their strongest pillars.

 

So what exactly was Bal Thackeray's connection with B'Town? Lets find out.

 

Sanjay Dutt: When actor Sanjay Dutt was accused in 1992-93 bomb blast case, Bal Thackeray played an important role to set him free from the jail premises. It is said that Sanjay Dutt's father Late Sunil Dutt pleaded Thackeray to help his son. And this is one of the main reason, why Sanjay Dutt admires Bal Thackeray and sees him as one of his pillars of strength.

 

Salman Khan: It was Thackeray who took Salman out from the controversy of audio tapes and his involvement with few terrorists who also dragged his then girlfriend Aishwarya Rai.

 

Amitabh Bachchan: Amitabh too used to share a very deep and cordial relationship with him. When Big B suffered a major accident while shooting for Coolie, Bal Thackeray visited him in the hospital. Big B recalling that time tweeted, When I fought for my life after 'Coolie' accident, he came to visit me in hospital, with a cartoon he had drawn – Yamraj defeated !

 

Also, Thackeray helped rush Amitabh to hospital after the accident, Big B tweeted: When I was flown in to Mumbai from Bangalore in semi conscious state after 'Coolie' accident, it was his ambulance that took me to BC.

This means Peekay will be postponed even further if Sanjay is to be replaced by a new actor. Wasn't Sanjay supposed to play a very pivotal role in this film?
