Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who on October 1 was granted a leave of 14 days from Pune's Yerwada central prison, is likely to extend his stay at home in Mumbai by 14 days.
The actor has applied for his leave to be extended for another two weeks under the provisions of the jail manual.
Mr Dutt, 53, was sentenced in March by the Supreme Court to five years in prison in a case linked to the 1993 terror attack in Mumbai, in which over 250 people died.
He was convicted for possession of an automatic rifle and a pistol that were supplied to him by men subsequently convicted for the bomb blasts. He had earlier been acquitted of the more serious charges of terrorism and conspiracy.
As an under trial, the actor had served 18 months in jail before being released on bail in 2007. He is currently serving a 42-month term in the Pune jail and had applied for leave on the grounds that he was unwell.
The 1993 bombings were seen at the time as the world's worst terrorist attack, with 13 bombs exploding over a two-hour period across Mumbai. Powerful explosives were packed into cars and scooters parked near India's main Bombay Stock Exchange and other sites in the city. 257 died and more than 720 people were injured in the attack.
