Deols sympathise with Dutt
Joining the Bollywood brigade demanding relief for Sanjay Dutt, the Deol family has expressed solidarity with the actor who has been convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case
"I consider everyone in the film industry as family. I am hurt when anyone from the industry is hurt. I cry but don't make noise. I feel sad for him.... I am sure he will come out soon. I am sure God will listen to me," veteran actor Dharmendra told reporters here today at the first look launch of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2'.
His son Sunny Deol, who has worked with Dutt in films like 'Kshatriya' and 'Krodh,' is saddened over the Supreme Court ruling handing down five-year jail term to Dutt.
"I am close to him. We have worked together in quite a few films I am really saddened with what has happened to him. He has gone through a lot of pain," Sunny said.
"I feel sad as his wife and children will have to be away (when Dutt goes to jail). I hope things will be fine with him," he said. Bobby Deol said he too is feeling sad for the 53-year-old actor. "We can't do anything about this.
I hope he comes out of his situation," Bobby said. Several celebrities have sought pardon for Dutt. Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and actor- turned-MP Jayaprada on March 26 met Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan here and sought clemency for the actor.
