Sanjay Dutt’s skit at Yerawada Jail was cancelled at the last moment disappointing family and friends. The reason given was security concern but the truth is something else. It seems due to the special treatment handed out to Dutt by jail authorities the State administration cancelled his skit.


According to sources, Senior Jail authorities who were getting their photographs snapped with the actor angered government officials and they put an end to the play. Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Amitabh Rajan, government sources say, felt that the photograph “glorified” a prisoner convicted in the 1993 blasts case.

Therefore they had cancelled the play. The play, titled ‘Teemiratun…Tejakade (From Darkness to Light), was supposed to feature 20 prisoners apart from the 54-year-old star. It was planned for Thursday at Bal Gandharva Auditorium in Pune, with Home Minister R R Patil to attend.
