Sanjay Dutt mentioned that his father Sunil Dutt, who all his life wanted to see his son free, would have been extremely happy on the day when the judge declared him not to be a terrorist.

“When the honourable judge told that day that I am not a terrorist, it was a big news for me. If my father would have been living then, he would have been happy to hear that.”
