Actor-politician Sanjay Dutt is in trouble again. A first information report (FIR) was lodged against him on Saturday for allegedly saying at a rally in Pratapgarh that he would, given a chance, give a “jaadoo ki jhappi and a pappi” (magical hug and kiss, a phrase made popular by the character Munnabhai that Dutt essayed on screen) to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

“A case was registered against Dutt for making undignified remarks against Chief Minister Mayawati on April 16,” Superintendent of Police (Pratapgarh) Mohit Agarwal said. This is the second FIR against Dutt, a Samajwadi Party (SP) office-bearer, in less than a week. On April 14, a case was filed against him in Mau for allegedly making communal remarks.

The latest FIR, lodged under Section 294 of the Indian Penal Code, relating to obscene acts in public, is punishable by a three-month jail term. SP general secretary Amar Singh said Dutt had not said anything objectionable. “There is nothing in the comments,” he said.
