The May 16 surrender of Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt looks imminent after the Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to grant him more time.
Just days after the apex court dismissed Dutt’s review petition regarding his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, the actor has been refused another possible reprieve. Two producers of his pending films had reportedly approached the court with the plea to grant the actor more time to finish his projects before surrender.
However, the court dismissed the plea.
Dutt was first granted four weeks to surrender after the March 21 conviction that handed him a five-year jail term. Then in April, the court granted four more weeks to Dutt to complete his pending work. Now, the actor is slated to surrender on May 16.
Sanjay Dutt has already wrapped up three pending projects of his: Zanjeer, Policegiri and Peekay. His work in Ungli is still pending.
The actor is facing a jail term of three-and-a-half years as he has already served 18 months behind bar.
