    Sanjay Dutt: On the night before

    By Super Admin


    Dutt's state of mind since the last one month has been cause for much

    speculation. He hasn't been shooting for his films, and although he put in a

    brief appearance at the Lage Raho Munnabhai premiere, the actor has otherwise

    been keeping out of public eye. So much so, that he didn't even promote his last


    Family matters

    In the last month, Dutt's has been

    spotted at nightclubs, with a few close friends. So, who are those friends? Says

    our source, "Sanjay's close friends are like his extended family. They are

    always with him through thick and thin - his brothers-in-law Kumar Gaurav and

    Owen Roncon, his buddies, Ajay Arora, Ajay Marwah, Bunty Walia, Nitin Manmohan,

    Sanjay Gupta - are always with him."

    And it was with some of these

    friends that Sanju baba chose to spend time with on the night before his verdict

    on September 12. Adds our source, "The night before his trial, Sanjay had a

    quiet dinner with Ajay (his gym buddy who is also known as Bittoo), Bunty Walia,

    his lawyer friend Karan at his Bandra flat.


    that he watched a movie and went off to sleep by 11.30 pm, as he had to get up

    early to go to court. His friends, his sisters Priya and Namrata, all kept

    trooping in one after the other to meet him. Bunty spent the night at Sanju's

    flat and accompanied him to court yesterday."

    Our source says that

    although Sanju isn't someone to openly express his sentiments, it was very

    obvious that he was anxious, "Anxiety is bound to be there as one doesn't know

    which way the judgment will swing."

    And prior to the verdict, a tense

    Dutt has been visiting many temples, dargahs and shrines for the last couple of

    months. Says the source, "In the last couple of months, Sanjay has been to the

    Ganesh and Tirupati temples in Pune and Vaishno Devi temple in Jammu accompanied

    by most of these friends."


    Filmmaker Mahesh

    Bhatt has always been close to the Dutt family, especially Sanjay says he hasn't

    been in touch with the actor, "We haven't communicated with each other for a

    long time. I did try and call Sanju yesterday morning but he had already left

    for court. I called up Bunty (Walia) and spoke to him. Normally I don't keep in

    touch with people unless necessary. But I did meet Priya (his sister) at a road

    opening near Juhu Gully and we shared a sense of concern, as we knew the morning

    would be very difficult. I sensed a philosophical resignation in her for what is

    in store.

    One will have to take whatever the judgment is, in stride. The

    only thing one can do is arming oneself legally to deal with a harsh verdict and

    keep hoping for a positive verdict. There is an oscillation between dread and

    hope all the time..."

    Where's the

    party tonight?

    At Ekta Kapoor's new house. Sanjay Gupta's White

    Feather Films along with Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms are throwing a party

    tonight at Ekta's new home in Juhu to celebrate the complete the first schedule

    of their co-production, Shoot Out At Lokhandwala, directed by Apoorva Lakhia.

    Sanjay Dutt might go to this party to join his friends in the celebration. The

    invite came to us from Apoorva saying 'I am having a party. Please join us.'

    The night before his trial, Sanjay had a quiet dinner with his friends

    at his Bandra flat. After that, he watched a movie and went off to sleep by

    11.30 pm, as he had to get up early to go to court.
