संजय दत्त आ गए राजनीति में

Troubled actor Sanjay Dutt became the latest Bollywood star to join politics with the Samajwadi Party naming him as its candidate from the Lucknow Lok Sabha constituency in the general elections later this year. A political analyst predicted a bright future for 'Munnabhai' in his new avtar. Sanjay will be contesting from a constituency that has long been represented by former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee of the Bharatiya Janata Party and who has opted out of the race on health grounds. Muzzafar Ali twice contested from Lucknow on a Samajwadi Party ticket but he never won. Raj Babbar also tried his luck once from Lucknow but in vain. He later won the Agra seat on the Samajwadi Party ticket before quitting the party.

Spending time with children has helped Dutt deal with stress while waiting to be sentenced after his conviction on a charge of illegal arms possession, the actor said according to a report published Friday, March 2, 2007. Dutt was convicted for unauthorized possession of three assault rifles and a pistol supplied by another person accused in the bombings but was acquitted of the more serious charge of conspiracy. (
