According to sources in the film fraternity, Dutt's withdrawal from the incomplete films will lead to massive financial loss for the producers.
The apex court had turned down Dutt's review petition on May 10 and asked him to surrender by May 16.
Reports said Dutt's only options now were either to apply for the mercy petition before the Governor or the curative petition, besides of course, to surrender. Senior lawyer Ujwal Nikam, however, had said that the actor now had no other option but to go to jail. Dutt can consider applying for mercy after going to jail, he had said.
