"I know Sanju (Sanjay) on a personal level, and I'm delighted that he will finally return home to his family and friends in one-two days. We've been waiting eagerly for the day, and we have always been praying for his safety," Manoj said at a promotional event for Aligarh here.

Manoj and Sanjay have worked together in films like as Daud, LOC Kargil and Dus Kahaniyaan.

Sanjay will be out of Yerwada Central Jail in Pune on Thursday after serving his term for illegal possession of arms during the Mumbai serial blasts in 1993. However, he was out multiple times on parole and furlough leaves during the period, which had raised a few questions.

"It's great news, very happy that he's returning. I'm a big fan of him, having grown up watching his films. He has respectfully completed his term; the mental pressure is also over now. He'll be an amazing guy, he'll be back all over again," Rajkummar said.
