Bollywood's "Bad Boy"Sunjay Dutt: focusing on his assignments

If you ask this question to any avid hindi movie lover "Which actor in Bollywood had serious ups and downs in his career?" I can bank that his/her first guess would be Sunjay Dutt. This versatile actor, son of legendary actor Sunil Dutt and Nargis has a very colorful life. As an actor Sunjay has proven his talent but bad luck never leaves him. In his 20's, he suffered from drug addiction, then, he was accused of keeping unauthorized arms in 1993. After that, he was accused of being involved in Mumbai blast. Recently, Sunjay has been busy running in and out of the court. However, Sunjay Dutt is not worried about the legal problems. I am quoting from the report published in Apun Ka Choice:

Dutt faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. His lawyers argued last month for a short prison term, since the actor has already served 18 months in jail.

Dutt's attorneys would be able to appeal his conviction after the court hands down a sentence.

A leading newspaper quoted Dutt as saying that he has become less agitated about his fate as the case draws to a close.

“My mind is far less restless now. I hope and pray this year my legal troubles will end,” Dutt said. “I want to start my life on a fresh note. My career, family and my personal life have suffered enough.”

The report says that Dutt is now shooting an action thriller, Shootout At Lokhandwala. In this movie he is playing the character of a police officer.Despite the accusations Sunjay is one of the most favorite actors of Indians. During his time in jail many actors and normal people supported him. I am sure this time he would get their support as usual.
