Pleading that he had to do dubbing for a number of his pending films, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is moving to Supreme Court on Tuesday to seek more time to surrender following his conviction in a 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
Senior counsel Harish Salve Monday said he will mention Dutt's application seeking six months to surrender in order to complete the dubbing work.
Dutt, 53, was sentenced to five years in jail by the apex court March 21 for illegal arms possession during the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. He was told to surrender by April 18.
The actor has already undergone one-and-half years of imprisonment and, according to the apex court order, he has to undergo the remaining three-and half years of the sentence.
In his plea, Sanjay Dutt has requested the court to grant him more time to surrender in order to complete his films as huge money has been invested by the producers in these projects. IANS
