Report  Web desk : MUMBAI: An arrest warrant was issued against Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt in an old case related to filmmaker Shakeel Noorani. It all began in 2002 when Noorani apparently signed Dutt for his film titled Jaan Ki Baazi, for Rs 50 lakhs. Sanjay began shooting for the movie, but quit midway, which cost Noorani a loss of Rs 5 crores. Reportedly, Noorani has claimed that when he contacted Dutt over this a few times, the actor sent him death threats, also using his underworld connections. “This warrant is because of his non-appearance in the court. We had first raised the matter in 2013. But after that, he (Dutt) went to jail for 1.5 years. So, now when he came back we got back with the case and for that he needed to appear in the court, which he failed to do repeatedly. So, this warrant had to be issued. (01)
