Aamir Khan strongly reacts to Sanjay Dutt’s parole
After Nana Patekar, perfectionist Aamir Khan reacts to Sanjay Dutt’s back to back parole extension. He said that no one is above law and law should be equal for one and all. There should be no difference. Sanjay Dutt received repeated parole extension owing to his own health issue and now wife Manyata’s illness. His parole extension created furore among public and administration.
While speaking to a daily, Aamir said, “I don’t think it’s right for me to comment on this matter…there are certain rules and regulations that prisons follow and I am assuming that they follow that for everyone. But if something has not been followed then whichever officer is responsible for that not only in Sanju’s case but in general then serious action should be taken against them as nobody is above the law.”
Aamir added as an afterthought, “I don’t know about Sanju’s case. How many days of parole he has been granted or how they have been. So it won’t be right for me to comment.”
Sanjay was convicted by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of arms in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. The 54-year-old actor was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment. He had earlier served 18 months in jail and had surrendered before a Mumbai court on May 18, 2013, to serve his remaining term.
While talking to a news channel on Thursday, Nana said, “I have not worked with him in the past 22 years of my career. I will not work with him in future, too.”
“The government will do whatever it wants. They are saying it is legal. You can’t say anything about it. But I will do whatever is in my power,” he added.
“You will watch his films and make him a hero and, later, you say he shouldn’t get parole. Things don’t work like that. What can I do? Who will listen to me? People think he is only an actor. I am also a common man, but who will consider that?” Nana said.
Nana had been vocal against Dutt at the time of his sentencing, too, saying he should not be given any special treatment for being an actor.Dutt has drawn criticism for getting parole of almost 100 days during his current jail term.
