Non-bailable warrant issued against Sanjay Dutt for threatening filmmaker

After that, Sanjay Dutt had to go to jail in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case, in which he was sentenced to five years in jail for possessing illegal arms. The Bollywood actor found himself amid another legal trouble with an arrest warrant issued against him.

Dutt had reportedly accepted Rs 50 lakh from Noorani as fee to his film, which he did not complete.

Mr Noorani has filed a private complaint with the court demanding registration of a case against Mr Dutt for criminal intimidation. He was also accused of allegedly threatening filmmaker Shakil Noorani.

Dutt had abandoned midway in 2002 a film, 'Jan ki Bazzi, ' which he was producing, said Noorani in his complaint, adding the actor did not even return the money already paid to him. However, Bombay High Court gave relief to Sanjay Dutt and discarded the demand of Shakil Noorani to attach the flat of the actor based in Pali Hill in Bombay. After Noorani's complaint, an Andheri Metropolitan court had issued the warrant against Dutt in 2013.

On the otherhand, the actor's spokersperson said, "This case has been going on since a long time and the present situation has arisen because of the communication lapse between our lawyers and us". Some reports suggest that Dutt turned up for the shoot only for two days.
