Why should Sanjay Dutt be spared, asks Nana Patekar

While the who’s who of B-town is supporting Sanju Baba, here is one actor who feels Dutt doesn’t deserve mercy

While Bollywood is supporting Sanjay Dutt in full force, with many even talking about granting the star mercy, there is one man who is neither following suit nor is afraid of speaking his mind.

Nana Patekar, who is known for calling a spade a spade, said in no uncertain terms that he is clearly not among those people who want mercy for Sanjay Dutt. In a recent interview, when Nana was asked by the media what he feels about Dutt’s jail sentence, the actor said, “Sanjay Dutt was sentenced by the court and he needs to bear that. He definitely needs to bear it. Why should he be spared? This is my simple question.” He further went on to elaborate that the star shouldn’t get any preferential treatment, and that he won’t work with Sanjay Dutt on project. “I can’t do anything about it. What I can do is not work with him again, and I won’t see his movies. This is the punishment I will give him from my side. It doesn’t matter whether it makes a difference to him or not,” said Nana.

Well, this is rather brazen remark by Nana. But it seems the duo doesn’t really share a great camaraderie, and in fact, they haven’t worked together in any movie. Whatever the case, what’s clear is the fact that Nana isn’t bothered by what the entire Bollywood says or thinks; he will continue speaking his mind!
