The apex court has pronounced five years jail term for the 53-year-old actor.
Earlier, a special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA) court had given six years jail term to Dutt under Arms Act. The 53-year-old actor has spent 18 months in jail and is out on bail. Since, he has already spent 18 months in jail, now he has to serve three and half-years in prison.
Sanjay Dutt, who is popularly known as "Sanju Baba" has a huge following in the Bollywood industry.
Most of the Bollywood celebrities expressed grief on micro-blogging site Twitter. Here are some of the tweets.
