Daughters love their daddies best. Especially if yours happens to be the one and only Sanjay Dutt. The original bad boy of Bollywood, unlike Salman Khan, actually served a complete sentence in the 1993 serial blasts case – even if he spent a chunk of it out on parole.

Trishala Dutt, Sanjay’s spunky daughter, from his first marriage with with Richa Sharma, is based out of New York, and was understandably elated. 

Trishala has been counting down days on social media:

And she also spoke to Pinkvilla regarding her obvious excitement:

I spoke to him about a week ago. We write letters to each other and that’s how we’ve been keeping in touch for the majority of 3 years. I wrote to him reminding him it’s only a few more days until he’s finally free and he wrote back saying how excited he is to finally come home!

Sanjay Dutt emerged from jail today after he finished his 42-month-long sentence. He had already served 18 months before the verdict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case was pronounced.

Twitter, too, is celebrating with Trishala:
