Bollywood could lose over Rs. 100 crore with Sanjay Dutt’s imprisonment
The film industry might get a jolt of over Rs. 100 crore if Sanjay Dutt, convicted and sentenced to five years in jail in 1993 Mumbai blasts case, indeed goes behind bars.

An estimated Rs.100 crore is riding on Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who faces jail again after the Supreme Court Thursday upheld his conviction under the Arms Act in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, industry insiders said.

The 53-year-old, who has films like the Zanjeer remake, Policegiri, "Munna Bhai 3" and P.K. in the works, was charged with illegal possession of arms and sentenced to six years in jail in 2007. The Supreme Court has now handed him a reduced term of five years.

Sanjay, who has already served 18 months of his sentence, has been given four weeks to surrender.

"Sanjay's upcoming films 'Policegiri' and 'Zanjeer' might get affected as some portions are still left to shoot... 'P.K.' is scheduled for release next year. Besides 'P.K.' is more of Aamir Khan's film. I would say not more than Rs.100 crore is at stake," trade analyst Komal Nahata told IANS.

Distributor Rajesh Thadani agreed. "Approximately Rs.100 crore to Rs.120 crore is at stake.

"The films, which are midway, will be affected. But it eventually depends on what the makers plan to do, and a lot also depends on how much time Sanjay goes in (the jail) for. Some amount of loss is bound to happen," he added.

Sanjay Dutt, the son of Bollywood legends Nargis and Sunil Dutt, has been entertaining moviegoers for over three decades. Last seen in Zila Ghaziabad in February, he has already wrapped shooting for his part as Sher Khan in the remake of "Zanjeer", which has a budget of Rs.50 crore.

"We wrapped up shooting all his scenes just four days back," Amit Mehra, the film's producer, told IANS, adding that "this news has came as a shock and is very heartbreaking".

"I can't imagine this as he is such a wonderful human being and an amazing person," he added.

Several members of the film fraternity, including Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt, Vishal Dadlani and Pritish Nandy, took to Twitter to share their views on the conviction of the actor, who made a mark for himself with movies like "Rocky", "Khal Nayak", "Sadak", "Saajan", "Mission Kashmir", "Munna Bhai" series and with the remake of Agneepath.

"I am truly shattered to hear of Sanju's sentence... the nicest guy I have known just doesn't deserve this. My heart goes out to him," posted Karan Johar, who is producing one of Sanjay's films titled "Ungli".

The news of his conviction has especially hit those with whom he shares a close bond, which goes beyond business.

"Policegiri" producer T.P. Aggarwal told IANS: "We have completed 95 percent of the film and just 12 to 15 days of shoot is left. The budget for the film should be around Rs.25 crore, but I am not bothered about the film, I am only worried about Sanjay Dutt."

Sanjay also has a part to play in Rajkumar Hirani's "P.K.", which is said to have been made in a budget of around Rs.50 crore. The actor's part, said to be a cameo, has been closely guarded.

On the endorsement front, Sanjay promotes a jewellery brand with wife Manyata. They have twins - a boy, Shahraan, and a girl, Iqra, born in 2010. Sanjay has an elder daughter named Trishala from his first wife Richa Sharma.

The actor was charged with being in possession of an AK-56 rifle and a 9 mm pistol. The 1993 serial blasts that ripped through India's financial capital killed 257 people and injured more than 700.
