Mumbai: Sanjay Dutt, who was diagnosed with lung cancer, today announced that he is finally cancer free. The Bollywood actor shared the news on Twitter with a long post, stating that he has come out victorious from this health scare on his children – Shahraan and Iqra’s – birthday, which makes it even more special for him.
Sanjay shared a statement with his fans about his health on Wednesday, saying that he has emerged ‘victorious’ in the battle. “The last few weeks were very difficult time for my family and me. But like they say, God gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. And today, on the occasion of my kids’ birthday, I am happy to come out victorious from this battle and be able to give them the best gift I can–the health and well-being of our family,” he wrote in his note.
Thanking the fans, he said, “This wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering faith and support from all of you. I am eternally grateful to my family, friends and all the fans who have stood by me and been my source of strength through this trying time. Thank you for the love, kindness and the countless blessings that you have sent my way.”
Back in August, Sanjay Dutt had announced on social media that he was taking a break from work for medical reasons. It was soon reported that the ‘Vaastav’ actor had been diagnosed with lung cancer and he underwent chemotherapy treatment at a hospital in Mumbai.
Sanjay also thanked his doctors and other medical staff for taking good care of him. “I am especially grateful to Dr. Sewanti and her team of doctors, nurses and the medical staff at Kokilaben Hospital who have taken such good care of me in the last few weeks. Humbled and grateful,” he wrote.
He 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.
