Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Earlier, the actor was supposed to fly to the USA for further treatment but now will be taking the treatment here in Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital for some time. Sanjay Dutt’s friend Jackie Shroff recently spoke about him in an interview with ETimes. He was asked whether he had reached out to Sanjay after hearing the unfortunate news. Jackie Shroff simply replied, “I sent him a text message. Sanju baba is like a phoenix. He has been through a lot of problems in his life and I am sure he is going to rise and shine through this too.” Sanjay Dutt and Jackie Shroff have done a lot of films together like Mission Kashmir, Kartoos, Eklavya and Khalnayak.
Earlier in a statement, Maanyata Dutt had said, “”I thank everyone who has expressed their well wishes for Sanju’s speedy recovery. We need all the strength and prayers to overcome this phase. There is a lot that the family has gone through in the past years but I am confident, this too shall pass. However, it is my heartfelt request to Sanju’s fans to not fall prey to speculations and unwarranted rumours, but to just help us with their ongoing love, warmth and support. Sanju has always been a fighter, and so has our family. God has yet again chosen to test us to overcome the challenges ahead.”
