Mr Dutt issued the following statement after the court verdict:
"I have already suffered for 20 years and been in jail for 18 months. If they want me to suffer more I have to be strong.
I am heart-broken because today along with me, my three children and my wife and my family will undergo the punishment. I have always respected the judicial system and will continue to do so, even with tears in my eyes.
I am going to complete all my films and won't let anyone down. I am overwhelmed by the support of my fans the industry people, the media and all the well-wishers. They have always stood by me and supported me.
I know in my heart that I have always been a good human being, respected the system and always been loyal to my country.
My family is very emotional right now and I have to be strong for them. I am shattered and in emotional distress. I am sorry I can't come down and meet you all.
God is great and he will guide me through this."
