It was a somber Wednesday evening at Sanjay Dutt's Pali Hill residence when the actor's incarceration was just hours away. Sanjay Dutt decided to spend the evening with his wife Maanyata and his twins. And contrary to reports on Thursday morning, there were no dramatic outbursts from Dutt. According to his friends, Dutt was remarkably calm and controlled on the evening before his impending incarceration.
"In fact Baba was providing comfort to Maanyata bhabhi who was acutely tense and inconsolable," says a friend.
Close friends dropped in to wish Dutt goodbye promising to be there for his family. Among the actors who stayed with Dutt for a major part of the evening was Ajay Devgn. Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who had just returned to Mumbai were seen at the Dutts' residence for some time.
Says a source, "There was not much conversation. No one seemed in the mood to talk. And Baba's appointment with the prison the next morning was not mentioned at all. It was almost as if the impending catastrophe would somehow go away. Baba had dreaded going back in for 20 years now. He lived with that dread every single day. And now it was finally happening."
Says a close friend of the troubled star, "Baba's main concern is Maanyata and the twins. Each time a close friend would drop in his brows would crease and his eyes would well up. He would look heavenwards helplessly."
Apparently, both Ajay and Abhishek have promised to look after Dutt's family in his absence. And Abhishek, we hear, has agreed to make a guest appearance in Sanjay Dutt Productions' Hasmukh Pighal Gaya.
Other close friends like Apoorva Lakhia and Bunty Walia decided to stay away from Dutt on his last day of freedom, so he could have some private time with his family.
And for those who are wondering where Dutt's devoted pal Suniel Shetty, known to stand by his friends through thick and thin, had disappeared, the sad truth is Dutt and Shetty had fall-out some time ago over a guest appearance that Shetty wanted Dutt to make in a film produced by Shetty. Sad, because at this time in his life Sanjay Dutt needs all the friends he can get.

The shadow of imminent incarceration may be looming over him. But Sanjay Dutt is determined to complete his work before he is confined to prison in April. On Monday and Tuesday, Sanjay Dutt completed the dubbing of Zanjeer. Apparently, the film's producers Reliance handed over a cheque of Rs. 1.5 crores to Dutt as dubbing fee.
In the meanwhile a huge bash that was planned in Mumbai on Ramcharan's birthday on Wednesday to introduce him to Bollywood's who's-who was cancelled. Says director Apoorva Lakhia, "We had planned this massive birthday party for Ramcharan at the Four Seasons to formally introduce him to the entire industry. But after what happened to Sanju Sir we cancelled the bash. Dil nahin kiya (our heart was not in it)."
On Thursday, Sanjay Dutt resumed shooting for producer T.P.Aggarwal's Policegiri. Speaking on the previous evening, Aggarwal said, "We were supposed to resume shooting on Wednesday. But it was Holi. Sanjay insisted that we don't waste any time (considering he has only a 4-week window before the doors shut on his freedom). But we insisted that he spend Holi with his family. We now resume on Thursday and wrap up the shooting in ten days."
Holi was an understandably subdued affair at the Dutts' residence. No one in Sanjay's two sisters's families was in a festive mood. However, some of Dutt's friends who were seen shedding tears over his jail sentence just a few days earlier thought nothing of carrying on with their usual Holi revelry.
Said a friend of the Dutt family, "It is only to be extended. Baba thinks the world is his family. Some of his so-called buddies went on with their Holi as though nothing had happened. That's the show-world for you."
The chorus for pardon for Sanjay Dutt is getting louder as Amar Singh and Jaya Prada meet the Maharashtra Governor to plead the actor’s case. It’s been an impressive line-up cutting across party lines to support for the actor. But is it just Sanjay Dutt, or do Bollywood stars in general have a different equation [...]
