  • Sanjay Dutt in legal trouble over threatening a film-maker

In what appears to be a beginning of fresh trouble for actor Sanjay Dutt, a non-bailable warrant was issued against him for failing to appear before Andheri Court in a case related to alleged threatening by filmmaker Shakil Noorani.

Reportedly, the case is of 2013 when Sanjay Dutt failed to complete the Noorani's movie "Jaan Ki Baazi" in 2002 despite taking the signing amount of Rs. 50 lakh.

According to ANI, the warrant was issued after the actor did not appear before a court in a case relating to cheque not being honoured.

Months after coming out of jail and getting back to his "filmy" life, with his upcoming movie being underway, actor Sanjay Dutt must have thought his legal woes are over, but looks like it's not happening anytime soon. "The court has allowed our application", said advocate Neeraj Gupta, Mr Noorani's lawyer.

The next hearing will be on August 29. The filmmaker later moved the Bombay High Court, seeking execution of the IMPPA's order.

We do hope that Sanjay Dutt manages to solve the issues at the earliest. The complainant said he had received death threats from thugs in the underworld who claimed to be acting on behalf of Dutt.

After that, Sanjay Dutt had to go to jail in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case, in which he was sentenced to five years in jail for possessing illegal arms.
