Actor Sanjay Dutt was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai after complaining about breathing problems.
Dutt took to Twitter to share a note. “Hi friends, I’m taking a short break from work for some medical treatment. My family and friends are with me and I urge my well wishes not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. With your love and well wishes, I will be back soon,” he tweeted.
Hospital sources confirmed that when Sanjay came in, his oxygen saturation levels were low. The source said, “Fluid had accumulated in his lungs because of that he was having breathing trouble.” The source also added that fluid samples were sent for testing, “Doctors said it could be tuberculosis or cancer. The reports on Wednesday confirmed that Sanjay is suffering from stage 4 lung cancer.” We hope the actor recovers soon.
Dutt himself took to his Instagram story to reveal that he would be taking a break from work and hoped to return post the treatment.
The 61-year old Panipat actor is allegedly leaving for the US for treatment, according to media reports. Here’s hoping he recovers soon.
Last week the actor was also tested for the coronavirus and fortunately tested negative. However, a day after news about his cancer diagnosis broke out, reports on Wednesday confirmed that Dutt, was in fact, suffering from stage four lung cancer.
