Sanjay Dutt was released from prison in 2016 after nearly three years in incarceration for an arms case stemming from the 1993 blasts. New Delhi: Prisons are not an easy place for anyone, least of all the rich and famous accustomed to living the good life.

The Indian prisons and judicial system, he said, desperately need reform, as he saw a number of families break down because of the sheer sluggishness of the justice delivery mechanism. Yet, he took everything in his stride, trying to read and find humour in the daily mundaneness of prison life, he said in a freewheeling conversation at ‘Off the Cuff’ with Shekhar Gupta in Mumbai Tuesday.
