Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who walked a free man 23 years after his legal problems began over the possession of an assault rifle, will open up on the ‘hard road to freedom’ at the India Today Conclave 2016 later this week.
“The conclave will welcome Sanjay Dutt to his first official appearance in almost three years, where he will give a hard hitting narrative on the topic ‘Resurrection and Redemption – the hard road to freedom’,” the organisers shared in a statement issued on Tuesday.
The Munnabhai M.B.B.S. star was last month set free from Yerwada Jail, Pune, where he served the remaining 42 months of his five-year rigorous imprisonment, and was accorded a hero’s welcome. On reaching Mumbai, he addressed the media and shared his sentiments on being free. However, he is likely to disclose a lot more about his ordeal at the conclave.
Among other prominent celebrities at the two-day conclave, which begins on Thursday, will be the celebrity lawyer-activist Amal Clooney, wife of Hollywood star George Clooney.
The Conclave will also feature a number of famous sportspersons, including Abhinav Bindra, MC Mary Kom and Gopichand Pullela, while from the cinema world, famed poet-lyricist Javed Akhtar and his wife & renowned actress Shabana Azmi, as well as comedian-writer Varun Grover will delve on various issues.
