Early reprieve for Sanjay Dutt, will walk free on 27 February

Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was found guilty in 2013 of acquiring and harbouring illegal weapons from those involved in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, is all set for an early release.

The 56-year-old will walk free from Pune's Yerawada Jail on 27 February, a few days ahead of schedule. He was sentenced to a six-year term but will be let off early on the grounds of good behaviour.

In 2007, Dutt was sentenced to six years in prison, but he spent 18 months and then was out on bail. A court ordered him back to jail in March 2013.

After his release, the actor will reportedly start shooting for multiple films, including Rajkumar Hirani's Munnabhai 3 and Sanjay Gupta's untitled venture.
