Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt is expected to make a comeback in politics. The ‘Munnabhai’ star will be joining Rashtriya Samaj Paksh (RSP), a BJP ally in Maharashtra, on September 25, according to party founder and Cabinet Minister Mahadev Jankar.
Jankar currently holds Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development portfolios in Maharashtra government.
The RSP has been a part of the BJP-led NDA since 2014.
In 2009, Sanjay Dutt had joined the Samajwadi Party but left it after the court refused to suspend his conviction under the Arms Act. He was also appointed general secretary of the party but resigned soon after.
His father, actor Sunil Dutt, was Mumbai North West’s Congress leader for five terms. Sister Priya Dutt also has been a Congress MP from Mumbai.
