Dutt was last in the news when he was set to perform in a play along with fellow inmates at Pune's Balandharva auditorium.

However, the play was inexplicably postponed despite the fact that it was to be be attended by Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Home Minister RR Patil.

Dutt was convicted by the Tada court for illegal possession of a 9 mm pistol and an AK-56 rifle which were part of a consignment of weapons and explosives brought to India for coordinated serial blasts in Mumbai that killed 257 people and injured over 700 in 1993.
