The programme, scripted and designed by the Yerawada jail inmates, is expected to be a houseful, a jail official said. It is scheduled to be performed on Thursday afternoon amidst high security at the Balgandharva Rangamandir auditorium.

The actor was convicted by TADA court for illegally possessing a 9 mm pistol and an AK-56 rifle, a part of the consignment of weapons and explosives brought to India for coordinated serial blasts that killed 257 people and injured over 700 in March 1993.

The Supreme Court in March this year had upheld his conviction under the Arms Act but reduced the six years to five. He had already served a-year-and-half behind the bars before the apex court's judgement and is undergoing the remaining sentence of 42 months.

Dutt was sent to Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai on May 16 after he surrendered before a designated TADA court and was shifted to Yerawada prison six days later.
