For their seventh wedding anniversary last year, Maanayata had sprung a surprise on Sanjay Dutt by making an unannounced visit at Pune’s Yerwada jail through special permission.
This year, however, pulling things off may not be so easy for her. For, dates of their anniversary on February 11 and his release from prison which is scheduled for February 25, are just a fortnight apart.
In 2014, Dutt, who is in jail after being convicted for illegal possession of arms in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, was out on parole during his anniversary.
The year before, Maanayata, along with their twins Iqra and Shahraan, had flown down to Rajasthan where he was shooting for Rajkumar Hirani’s PK, days before he was sent to jail to serve the remainder of his five- year jail sentence.
This year, Maanayata has asked for permission from the jail authorities to visit Dutt. She is still waiting for them to revert, but securing their approval looks a bit difficult this time.
