Sanjay Dutt

Actor Sanjay Dutt is all set to make his first onscreen appearance with KGF 2 after valiantly fighting cancer. Back in 2020, Sanjay was diagnosed with lung cancer which concerned a lot of fans. However, he had beaten cancer and turned out to be victorious. As he is now doing well health-wise, in an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, Sanjay opened up on his battle with cancer. That’s not it, he even mentioned how it didn’t deter his spirit to perform all the action scenes all by himself in KGF: Chapter 2.

Talking about the same to us, Sanjay who plays Adheera in the film says, “Cancer is not a joke. I’m going to tell all the cancer patients since I’m a cancer patient, I didn’t feel anything to say that ‘Yes, I have cancer’. Log chupate but kyu chupana? But if you fight it, if you’re strong, if you’re mentally strong, if you fight this and say that I don’t have it and I’ll work to beat it, you’ll beat it. Agar destiny mein likha hai then you can’t change it. Prasanth and Yash were very particular about it.”

The Kalank actor also revealed that the makers wanted him to shoot with the green screen after they found out about Sanjay’s cancer. But he had to put his foot down as he wanted the film to be shot the way it was narrated to him. Sanjay further told us, “After I got cancer, they wanted me to shoot with a green screen and make it a little easier but I was like the way it was narrated, if it is not shot like that, then I’m not coming to this film, so I kept my foot down. They were very vary on the first day but then they saw that I could take it and then we went all out.
