Bangalore: Controversies and celebrities are two inseparable terms. Bollywood stars love to hog the limelight - even if it is for the wrong reasons. Let’s take a look at some of the bollywood celebs who have criminal charges against them or have spent some time behind bars –

Sanjay Dutt

The recent news of Sanjay Dutt being sentenced to five years in prison by the Supreme Court, in relation with the 1993 Mumbai blasts has shocked the entire nation. Dutt, who was convicted under the Arms Act for illegally possessing weapons, had been awarded six years imprisonment by the TADA (Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act) court. However, the apex court reduced the sentence from six years to five years and Dutt will have to spend three-and-a-half years in jail.

"I am shattered and this is the tough time in my life. With folded hands I request the media and citizens let me be at peace," he said, as reported by PTI.

"There are very, very tough times in my life and in our lives. I want to thank everybody who supported us and me. I just want to tell everyone from the media that I have got very few days left and I want to finish all my work. I also have to spend time with my family," Dutt said.
