Sanjay Dutt was unsure about IPL bid

September 4, 2009

Like his colleagues Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty, Sanjay Dutt also wants his share of the Indian Premier League (IPL) pie. But the actor was not sure whether he would be allowed to bid for team ownership because of his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

“There’re two new teams in Ahmedabad and Nagpur coming up in December. Sanjay might buy either.”

But the actor-politician, who has been convicted under the Arms Act in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, had a fruitful meeting with Lalit Modi, IPL chairman and commissioner.

“Sanjay’s main concern was, would he be able to buy the team because of his court cases? There are many things that he can’t do, like endorsements etc. Sanjay was assured there would be no problem. With the removal of TADA charges, Dutt now has rights equal to every other Indian citizen.
