India's film industry rallies behind Sanjay Dutt

India's film industry rallies behind Sanjay Dutt

India's film community has reacted with dismay and rallied behind popular Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt after the Supreme Court upheld a weapons conviction and ordered him to report to prison within a month.
Top Bollywood stars and directors on Friday tweeted their support for Dutt after the court sentenced him to five years in prison for illegal possession of weapons supplied by Mumbai's crime bosses responsible for a 1993 terror attack that killed 257 people.
Leading actors Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan were among the first of a stream of Bollywood A-listers to visit Dutt's home to offer sympathy and support to the actor and his family.
Trade analysts said Dutt's jail term will be a huge financial blow for the industry.
