Why the extra sympathy for Sanjay Dutt?

on Mar 26, 2013 , 10:29 am
Political leaders like Mamata Banerjee, Jaya Bachchan, Amar Singh have expressed their sympathy for Sanjay Dutt. Even a Supreme Court judge has said he does not think Sanjay Dutt is guilty of a crime. That he is not a terrorist. Bollywood stars too have shown their support for him. Clearly what applies to the common man does not apply to Dutt.

Does he deserve this extra sympathy just because he is a celebrity? Would he have got so much support if he was a common man?
