However, he, filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, was arrested a few days back for alleged misuse of the name of the office of the Mumbai Police commissioner for promotional purposes, with regards to his forth coming venture, Shootout at Wadala. On March 3rd Sanjay Gupta’s lawyer Aabad Ponda moved an anticipatory bail application before the main judge, Swapna Joshi. Swapna Joshi has granted the film director an interim bail which is to remain in effect till the 5th of March, 2012.

The official invitation that was sent out to the page 3 consultants, the other media houses and related business concerned associates and a handful o f friends of the accused, also conveniently stated that the Commissioner of Police of Mumbai would be present at the promotional introductory event and will be talking to the media regarding the status of crime in the city in the contemporary times.
