Sanjay Dutt struggled with drug addiction early in his career.

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says actor Sanjay Dutt had a really hard time dealing with his addiction to heroin.

“Sanjay Dutt had a really hard time dealing with his addiction. It went to a point where his first thought in the morning was about heroin. Hear me and Pooja Bhatt (daughter and actress-filmmaker) talk about substance abuse only on ‘Bhatt Naturally’ (radio show),” Mahesh tweeted on Sunday.

Sanjay has worked with Vishesh Films, which is co-owned by Mahesh, for films like Kabzaa, Sadak and Dushman.
