His 27 year old daughter Trishala is way too excited to welcome her dad and announced that her lion (Sanjay) would soon be out of his cage.

Sanjay Dutt was convicted by the special TADA court in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case. The ‘Munnabhai MBBS' star was arrested on April 19, 1993, for possession and destruction of an AK-56 rifle, which was a part of cache of arms and explosives which landed in India prior to the serial blasts of March 1993.
During the investigation and the marathon trial, he spent 18 months in jail. On July 31, 2007, the TADA court in Mumbai sentenced him to six years' rigorous imprisonment under the Arms Act and imposed a fine of Rs 25,000. In 2013, the Supreme Court upheld the ruling but reduced the sentence to five years.
During his imprisonment, he was granted parole of 90 days in December 2013 and again for 30 days later.
