Sanjay Dutt, who is battling cancer, has responded “very well” to the medical treatment, according to a family member. In August, the 61-year-old actor had announced that he would be taking a break from his professional commitments to focus on medical treatment, amid speculation that he was battling lung cancer.
“The news was like he has got six months or this month to live, (but) it has never been that scene. He was detected with a kind of lung cancer for which treatment started in Mumbai and he has responded very well to the treatment,” a family member told PTI. “He went for his test today and the results have come out very good. With God’s grace and everyone’s blessings, he has responded very well,” the member added.
The actor, who was last seen in Sadak 2, opened up about his cancer diagnosis for the first time last week in an Instagram video shared by celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim. “This is a recent scar in my life, but I’ll beat it. I’ll be out of this cancer soon,” Sanjay Dutt said in the clip posted on October 14.
The actor is gearing up for the shooting of his next, KGF: Chapter2, in November. The period action film, starring Yash, marks Sanjay Dutt’s Kannada debut.
Sanjay and wife Maanayata had recently travelled to Dubai for a short break. Ending all speculations about his treatment, Maanayata had earlier said in a statement, “For those asking, Sanju will complete his preliminary treatment in Mumbai. We will formulate further plans of travel depending on how and when the Covid situation eases. As of now, Sanju is in the best hands of our esteemed doctors at Kokilaben hospital. I request everyone, with my folded hands, to stop speculating the stage of his illness and let the doctors continue to do their work. We will update you all regularly with his progress.”
