Sanjay Dutt is a free man now. At exactly 8.40 am, a bearded Sanjay Dutt with a tilak on his forehead stepped out of the iron gate dressed in blue shirt and denims clutching onto a bundle of documents and bag hanging from his shoulders.
A smile lighted his face as the 56-year-old actor, clad in a blue shirt and jeans, stepped out and walked briskly
toward a waiting car outside the prison, waving to onlookers.
Looking in good health, he enthusiastically carried in his hands a ‘khaki’ bag containing his belongings and a green coloured file that apparently contained his prison record.
A sense of dramatics crept in as he turned back and saluted the tri-colour atop the prison building and bent to
touch the soil in full media glare.

Waiting outside to receive him were Rajkumar Hirani and wife Maanyata. The actor greeted the waiting media and was soon whisked away in a car to the airport from where he will take a chartered flight out to Mumbai.
