"But Sanjay Dutt will abide by the apex court's order of undergoing the sentence of three-and-a-half years in letter and spirit. Three-and-a-half-years is not a long period," he said.
"We have prepared him (for sentence) from the very beginning. Sanjay Dutt is a strong man and will fight for himself," Maneshinde said.
The actor remained closeted with his family at his penthouse in Pali Hill in suburban Bandra.
A battery of media persons was present outside the building for the actor's comments but he has not obliged them so far.
