Samajwadi Party is fielding Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt from Lucknow constituency that is currently represented by former Prime Minister and BJP leader Atal Behari Vajpayee.

The Party made an announcement in this regard today. Sanjay, whose father Sunil Dutt was a Congress leader and member of Parliament, thus makes his entry into the politics.

His sister, Priya Dutt, is already a Congress MP. SP leader Amar Singh today confirmed that Sanjay Dutt would fight the election on the party ticket. For sometime there have been speculations about Sanjay's entry in the politics.

The actor, who has been in the jail in the past, for allegedly keeping an AK 47 assault rifle during the Mumbai riots, has returned to public life and delivered successful movies like Munna Bhai MBBS.
