Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has been diagnosed with lung cancer, film trade journalist Komal Nahta tweeted late on Tuesday.
“Not the new dreaded ‘C’ (coronavirus), it’s the other dreaded ‘C’, cancer, that Sanjay Dutt has been diagnosed with,” he tweeted.
On his part, Dutt posted, “Hi friends, I am taking a short break from work for some medical treatment. My family and friends are with me and I urge my well- wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon!”
A close friend of the actor told a website that the actor is devastated. He added that the actor is worried about his little children who are currently in Dubai with mom Maanayata Dutt. The friend further stated that the cancer is curable but needs immediate and rigorous treatment. Hence, the actor will leave for the US for the treatment.
Meanwhile, on August 08, Dutt was admitted to the hospital after he complained about breathlessness. He did a Covid-19 test and the result was negative. The actor was discharged from the hospital after a day.
On the work front, he will next feature in ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. The actor unveiled his first look poster on his birthday.
