A shocked B-town expresses shock and horror on Twitter as Sanjay Dutt is sentenced to five years in jail by the Supreme Court today
It seems actor Sanjay Dutt’s past has finally caught up with him, as the Supreme Court of India upheld the decision of the TADA court and sentenced him to five years in prison. The court has ordered him to surrender within four weeks. And, since Bollywood is one big family, the fraternity is reacting quite strongly. Within minutes of the court announcing its decision, celebrities took to Twitter and expressed shock and horror at the court verdict.
What’s obvious from most Tweets is that besides Sanjay’s fans, even the Bollywood folks are not at all happy with the way things have turned out for the actor. Here’s looking at what Sanjay’s friends and colleagues have to say…
