A guide to Indian prisons for Salman Khan — from Sanjay Dutt

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 jail sentence given to Bollywood star Salman Khan for poaching isn’t his first -- he has done time before, for three days, for the 2002 hit-and-run. But at five years, it might prove his longest. For advice on how to get by, Salman can turn to frequent co-star and close friend Sanjay Dutt, who was released from prison in February 2016 after nearly three years in incarceration for an arms case stemming from the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai.

Off The Cuff with Ranveer Singh

This edition of 'Off The Cuff' saw actor Ranveer Singh speaking about the protests over his recent release Padmaavat, and why he had kept mum throughout the controversy. Singh said the protests and attack on the film's director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, had enraged him, but he had been asked by friends and the film's producers not to say or do anything, because it could make things worse. Singh also batted for the scrapping of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises homosexuality, and said he had no apprehensions playing the bisexual Alauddin Khilji. “I am a very liberal-minded person and think Section 377 should be scrapped,” he told ThePrint's Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta and Contributing Editor Mahrukh Inayet. The event was held in Mumbai on 13 February 2018.
