Sanjay Dutt's prison look perfect for film

Dutt, who was sentenced in the 1993 blasts case, and was released on bail after spending 37 days in prison on Thursday, looked haggard and worn out.
He was sent to Yerwada jail in Pune after he received an order copy from the Mumbai TADA court on October 22.
One of the reasons Dutt wants to go ahead and shoot for EMI is because of his bearded look. As for the other films, he just needs to trim his beard for a different look.
The sets of EMI are already in place at Filmistan studio in Mumbai where Dutt had shot some portions of the film before going to jail on October 22.
The film stars Urmila Matondkar [Images] and is directed by debutant director Saurav Kabra.
But first things first, the actor is taking a much-deserved break.
"He needs rest and has preferred to stay at home for a week," says a close friend of Dutt on condition of anonymity.
"The only trip that Dutt will likely make would be to Siddhivinayak temple in Prabhadevi, central Mumbai. And if he wishes, he will go to some other temples outside Maharashtra before commencing work," said the friend.
Dutt has been quite a regular to Siddhivinayak temple during his court hearings.
The Supreme Court, while granting bail to the actor, had put a condition that he would have to deposit his passport at the special TADA court in Mumbai.
Dutt would also have to report to the CBI Special Task Force in Mumbai once a month.
At present there are three Dutt films whose shooting is held up: Mr Fraud, Kidnap and EMI.
