​Mohanlal defends Sanjay Dutt

Last Updated: Sun, Mar 24, 2013 04:18 hrs

Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who is facing charges after a recent Supreme Court verdict, has found some kind words from the Malayalam superstar Mohanlal.

In his Facebook page, a post has appeared under his name which reads: “Over the last 20 years my colleague and friend Mr. Sanjay Dutt has been a reformed and good citizen, a loving family man and a person who has braved adversity and come out stronger and better. 
He certainly deserves our compassion and help to put this chapter behind him once and for all. I sincerely hope and pray that he is shown the leniency he truly deserves and is granted a pardon.”

The media has given much importance to Mohanlal's words and as expected some have come in the open against the superstar's stance as well. There has been a demand to withdraw the Lieutenant Colonel of the Territorial Army honour that Mohanlal holds, soon after the statement made news.
We will keep you posted on the latest.
