Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has been diagnosed with lung cancer, film trade journalist Komal Nahta tweeted late on Tuesday.
“Not the new dreaded ‘C’ (coronavirus), it’s the other dreaded ‘C’, cancer, that Sanjay Dutt has been diagnosed with,” he tweeted.
Sanjay Dutt also 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.
Last week, the actor had tweeted that he was doing well and had tested negative for covid.
The 61-year old actor, last seen in period drama Panipat, is said to leave for the US for treatment, according to media reports.
