“Act Till You Are Hundred, I Just Took Away Six Years” : Judge Tells Sanjay Dutt

Filed under: Bollywood News

Sanjay Dutt’s conviction was indeed a sad day for his numerous fans and well wishers. But the man who would have been in utmost pressure while providing the judgment would have been, the TADA Court, Judge Kode.  At one side was the thought that  Sanjay Dutt  had indeed transformed into a good human being. His works like Lage Raho Munna Bhai, helped the cause of Gandhigiri that no other movement must have. But on the other side, there was no denial that Sanjay Dutt was indeed guilty.

The Judge might have been a fan of Sanjay’s acting talent. But in the court his personal feelings for Sanjay Dutt were blinded by his obligation towards his duty and that should be respected. The six years sentence given to Sanjay Dutt may have felt harsh for his Bollywood fan followers. But in my opinion the judgement was impeccable, and heralded the spirit of Justice For All without discrimination.

Rejecting actor Sanjay Dutt’s emotional plea for time to surrender after he was given a six-year jail term in the 1993 serial blasts case, Judge PD Kode told the star not to lose faith in himself as he was ‘number one’ in films.

Act till the age of 100, I have only taken away six years,” Judge Kode of the Special TADA court told Dutt hours after sentencing him to rigorous imprisonment for six years for illegal possession of weapons.

Noting that Dutt was ‘number 1 in the film line’, Kode said he had liked the actor’s performances very much and advised him to have faith in himself.

Kode’s comments came while he was hearing Dutt’s plea for more time to surrender. After hearing his sentence earlier in the day, Dutt went to the witness box with folded hands and sought permission to speak in the court.

“Sir, I made a mistake 14 years ago. Please give me some time to surrender,” the actor, who turned 48 on Sunday, said. When the court took up the plea later, Dutt told the judge: “I am very tired, sir. I just need your blessings.”

“Don’t get perturbed, for you have many years to go and work like the Mackenna’s Gold actor, Gregory Peck,” Kode told the star in an informal conversation that lasted almost 10 minutes.

In an apparent attempt to cheer up Sanjay Dutt, Kode told him that he had seen the actor’s performance with his late father Sunil Dutt in Munnabhai MBBS. “In the film, your father looked much better than you,” the judge said.

We too at  wishtSanjay Dutt and his friends and family members are provided with great strength in this turbulent times. And why 100? We hope you continue to act till 150. May  God Bless You, Sanjay Dutt.
