Arshad Warsi’s honest take on Sanjay Dutt’s cancer diagnosis; says, “He’s a fighter, will emerge triumphant here too”
In the neverending saga of bad news from Bollywood, there came another heartbreaking news of Sanjay Dutt being diagnosed with lung cancer. Reportedly, the actor is in stage 4 of cancer. Along with his fans, the film fraternity is also sad by the news.
Arshad Warsi who had worked with Sanjay Dutt in ‘Munna Bhai’ franchise has told Mid-Day that Sanjay Dutt is a fighter and he will emerge as the winner.
Arshad said, “I don’t know anyone who would have survived [the difficulties] that he has faced head-on. Despite the situations, he has an air of positivity. I have never seen him crib about his hardships. He will emerge triumphant here too; he is a fighter.”
Arshad also said that he had spoken to Sanjay when he was admitted to hospital. He said, “We spoke when he was hospitalised last week; he assured me he was fine.”
Arshah and Sanjay were supposed to work in a comedy called ‘Blockbuster’ next month. “Films can come and go, but people like him are rare. I pray that he gets better,” said Arshad.
A few days back, Sanjay was rushed to Mumbai’s Lilavati hospital after he complained of breathing trouble. He got the Covid-19 test done but tested negative. He was still having problems and then the PET scan revealed that he is suffering from lung cancer as per a report in Times of India.
Yesterday, Sanjay’s wife Maanayata Dutt released a statement where she didn’t say anything about Sanjay’s cancer diagnosis. She wrote, “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.”
Sanjay is likely to fly to the US for treatment.
