The writer has posted comments on this article TNN | Oct 2, 2013, 01.12 PM IST Sanjay Dutt gets 14-day parole on medical grounds RELATED Sanjay Dutt to perform SRK’s ‘Lungi Dance’ Sanjay Dutt is back home on a 14-day parole for medical reasons. While his family and fans are ecstatic to have him back home, there are many who are raising eyebrows. Several lawyers have allegedly said that it was the actor’s celebrity status that helped him get the required permission easily, as it is very difficult for a common prisoner to obtain one. A Mid-day report says that the actor, who was undergoing treatment for Peripheral Arterial Disease , was advised by doctors to undergo some medical tests. He applied for furlough in August. Though other prisoners find it difficult to get the required permission due to corruption and delay in the system, Sanjay got the permission for 14 days medical leave easily. Now Sanjay can live an ordinary life and get all the treatment. He has to, however, report to a local police station daily and cannot travel abroad. Refuting lawyers’ allegations, an official from Yerawada Jail tells Mid-Day that they have released the actor on furlough after considering his application and order from concerned authorities. This is the right of an inmate and they have gone by the rules. ALSO ON TOI

One source close to the situation tells FOX411 the former Teen Mom star only got about 1/100 of that amount. Thats right: $10,000, not $1 million. And Kevin Blatt, who has brokered several celebrity sex tapes himself, said Tami Erin, who once portrayed Pippi Longstockings, got the same offer. Tami Erin was offered $10K up front which is standard for Vivid, Blatt told FOX411. It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars. Another adult entertainment industry insider backed up Blatts claims. In reality she (Abraham) got $10,000 upfront and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production,” the source said. The entire celebrity sex video genre is a lot of unsubstantiated marketing with very little truth behind it. Its all publicity. Its all hype. (FOX411 reached out to Abraham, who had no comment.) Indeed in the era of free Internet porn and the decline of the DVD, porn insiders say celebs are making less and less for having sex on camera. Paris and Kim made millions, but thats because it was a different time, Blatt said. People were buying DVDs then. Our sources say Paris Hilton made over $13 million for her tape, released in 2004, while Kim Kardashian made over $8 million for her 2007 sex tape with hip hop singer Ray J. President of Vivid Entertainment Steven Hirsch would not talk numbers, but said: “I think after doing these deals for so many years I know how to properly structure them.We aim for fair deals for all involved and if they weren’t profitable, we wouldn’t be in business for almost 30 years.I’m happy with our track record.” Jasmine Waltz, a sometime actress and model most famous for dating celebrities like David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, released her sex tape, “Real Jasmine,” for Exquisite in 2011. She told us anyone looking to parlay her 15 minutes of fame into a big sex tape payday better watch out. Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made.Basically, youll never see the back end after advertisement. You wont get the money. Its a very untrustworthy business, she said.
