The actor has been sentenced to five years of imprisonment by the Apex Court. And here's what he has to say about it...
Today morning the Supreme Court upheld Sanjay Dutt's conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case and sentenced him to five years of imprisonment. The actor has already spent 18 months in jail, but will have to surrender himself for the remaining tenure of three-and-a-half years in four weeks.
Sanjay Dutt speaks up:
"I have already suffered for 20 years and been in jail for 18 months. If they want me to suffer more I have to be strong.
I am heart-broken because today along with me, my three children and my wife and my family will undergo the punishment. I have always respected the judicial system and will continue to do so, even with tears in my eyes.
I am going to complete all my films and won't let anyone down. I am overwhelmed by the support of my fans the industry people, the media and all the well-wishers. They have always stood by me and supported me.
I know in my heart that I have always been a good human being, respected the system and always been loyal to my country.
My family is very emotional right now and I have to be strong for them. I am shattered and in emotional distress. I am sorry I can't come down and meet you all.
God is great and he will guide me through this."
