Sanjay Dutt was not a criminal, he was just trapped: Subhash Ghai

Sanjay Dutt was not a criminal, he was just trapped: Subhash Ghai
Subhash said it was against his morality to capitalize on Sanjay's tough times and revealed that he did not spend a single rupee on the promotion of Khalnayak. Sanjay played the role of a wanted criminal in the film. When he was questioned about the promotion of the film Khalnay in an interview given in Bollywood Hungama, Subhash said that he never used Sanjay's legal dispute to promote Khalnayak.
Bollywood Hungama asked, "There was a lot of discussion when Khalnayak was released, Sanjay was a new face at that time, so what was your approach as a director. The way the whole world is seeing him in today's time. And at the same time in the film. So how should I market it so that it does not hurt anyone and I can do the film with the right positioning?

Which is the last climax scene in the end of Jail Ka Khalnayak in the movie. He shot when he came on leave after his arrest. Inside the shoot, we were about to shoot a Trimurti film, a part of it was also shot. After that he got a long sentence. But I never cashed this thing. It was against my charges. It is a very painful thing that you have an actor who gets stuck in such trouble and you cash in on him. You will be right that I did not spend even a single rupee in the promotion of Khalnayak. He sat silent. There was so much controversy of songs behind the chauli, 32 political units went against me, court cases happened. But I remained silent. I knew what film I had made. I knew what Sanjay Dutt is, I knew what was in the song behind the choli. You will not believe that the promotion of the film Khalnayak has the minimum budget of my life in the promotion. The least promotion was done for this film, because this film was a promotion in itself. He was talking everywhere. All I did was inform that this film is being screened in theatres. It is taking place on this day and this show is happening. We didn't do anything other than this. For this we approached very calmly."

Let us tell you that in April 1993, Sanjay was arrested under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act. While he was released on bail a month later, in 1994 his bail was canceled and he was arrested again. He was released from prison in October 1995.

Sanjay was convicted under the Arms Act by a TADA court in 2006, when he was found guilty of possessing a 9mm pistol and an AK-56 rifle, but was acquitted of the more serious TADA charges. He spent a few days in jail in 2007 but got bail in less than three weeks. He also spent time in jail from 2013 to 2016.
