Sanjay Dutt, imprisoned for illegal arms possession in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts that tore apart the city, was granted a 14-day furlough by authorities at Yerwada jail on December 24. This is the fourth time in 18 months that the actor will be out of the jail in Pune.

Sanjay Dutt has spent 118 days out of Yerwada jail, since he surrendered in May 2013. He is currently serving the 42-month remainder of his shortened five year sentence. But the buzz around ‘Sanju baba’ just refuses to die down.

Given the controversial nature of his arrest and his huge celebrity status, this isn’t surprising. Except that some of these stories have made us snigger, cringe and, sometimes, question journalism completely.
