Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebritities are tweeting.

Members of the film fraternity, have spoken out in support of Sanjay Dutt after the Supreme Court sentenced the actor to five years in jail in connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.

Arbaaz Khan: 'Still shocked by strict judgment meted out to Sanju baba. One has to respect the lands judiciary but personally think its too harsh.. God give Sanju baba and his family the strength to overcome these trying times. Sanju baba is a good guy and will pray for him. God bless !'

Raj Kundra
: 'Landed in tokyo to the news of my bro @duttsanjay we have faith in the law. He has suffered 20 years isn't that enuff?? Nicest man I know!'

Pooja Bedi
: 'I respect the law... but sometimes facts don't give a true picture. it's rightly said that #sanjaydutt is an errorist not a terrorist. Back then the underworld virtually ruled Bombay & bollywood. Stars would perform for them films were financed by them. Stars scared 2say no. 20 yrs later things have changed& perhaps it's hard 2understand that underworld ruled builders& stars. cops never got th big dons who ruled. It's foolish to have been possibly intimidated into keeping stuff but from what I know of Sanjay he's a gentle giant with a heart of gold.'

Juhi Chawla: 'Extremely saddened by the news of Sanjay Dutt's sentence.. These are tough times.. Strength and prayers to him & his family.'

Apoorva Lakhia: 'Sad and helpless for Sanju sir and his family.... Friend, mentor, hero. Munnabhai and Sher Khan in 1. Never give in SD. This too will pass.'

Payal Rohatgi: 'Worked with @duttsanjay sir in #Plan and #Rakht. He is a gem of a human being. God give him strength and to his family.'

Neha Dhupia: 'Worked with @duttsanjay in #shootoutatlokhandwala n #ungli . There are very few gentlemen in the industry and he is clearly one of them.'

Rohit Roy: 'I totally respect the Indian judiciary but having known Sanju sir closely for the last decade, I can safely that he wouldn't hurt a fly.. This judgmnt is way too harsh n NO, he doesn't deserve it. I don't undrstnd the law minutely but he seems to be paying for being sanjay Dutt. All our wishes n prayers are with Sanju sir .. I hope he gets some reprieve from the prez or guv.. We all love u, Sanju sir.'

Ram Kapoor: 'Feeling sooooooo bad for Sanjay Dutt!! Yes he made a mistake... But he's paying a VERY high price for it.'
