Pune: The new identity for Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt from Wednesday is prisoner number 16656 at Yerwada Central Jail in Pune where he was shifted from Mumbai`s Arthur Road Prison following his surrender before a TADA court.
Dutt, whose conviction in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case was upheld by the Supreme Court in March, 2013, was brought to Yeravada jail at the crack of dawn today. He is lodged in a separate individual cell in view of his security needs, official sources said.

The Bollywood "Khalnayak", who later reinvented himself with `Gandhigiri` as Munnabhai, will be spending about three and half years in prison.
Sources said Dutt would be given prescribed manual work job in due course after formalities of admission are over.

There will not be any special treatment to the actor except required due to the threat perception, they added.
