He had also asked for permission to meet his family and to be allowed to move around freely in jail. The court has not yet decided on those requests.
The actor will be first sent to Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, where paperwork will be completed. He is then expected to be moved to Pune's Yerawada jail to complete his prison term of five years.
