Baljeet Parmar, a crime journalist working for a tabloid in Mumbai was the one who broke the story of Sanjay Dutt possessing an AK-56 rifle. Once this news broke, Sanjay Dutt was taken into custody within five days; just as he came back from his shoot in Mauritius. He was charged under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act or TADA for being involved in terrorism. In November 2006, the court dropped the charges of TADA against Sanju believing that he had taken the gun for self defense. He was sentenced to six years of imprisonment after being convicted under the arms act.
In a facebook post, Baljeet Parmar wrote "The so-called bio pics are tailored to suite the man or the woman they are based on. They are not to inspire the audiences but are there to create a smokescreen to blur their minds. (sic)"
Parmar added, "The use or misuse of drugs, sleeping with women, branding media as an addictive potion, finding faults with system or society, willingly and knowingly Indulge in criminal activity, showing no remorse for your past actions, playing the sympathy card and crying victim, if that is what SANJU is about, I do not regret my decision of staying away from cinema halls.
