Film-maker Subhash Ghai, who worked with Sanjay in Vidhata and Khalnayak, was in Vienna when the verdict w
Bollywood bad man Gulshan Grover was in a shock that Sanjay had been sent to jail once again after 12 years. "I had never expected such a verdict. I think Sanju has already suffered for what he did. He had been in custody even before. So I think the judiciary needs to revise the decision. After all he is a changed man. He can be an asset to the society."
Other artistes also rued the ruling on Tuesday. Arti Chabaria said: "It is a great loss to our industry because he was not only a good actor and but also a good human being. I will stand by Mr. Dutt, but nothing can be done now as the court's sentence has been given."
An emotional Rohit Roy went a step ahead to slam the court's decision as "too harsh". "I don't think even the most hardened criminals get such punishment. He (Sanjay) was reckless in his youth but tell me, who isn't? I guess he has already suffered for 14 years with the dagger hanging on his head. He doesn't deserve this." Rohit describes Sanjay as a "very sweet guy who has not changed one bit in the past 14 years".
