Sanjay Dutt Is Not Terminally Ill, Says ‘Torbaaz’ Producer Rahul Mittra
Mumbai: Sanjay Dutt’s close friend and ‘Torbaaz’ producer Rahul Mittra has said the ‘Munnabhai’ actor, who was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this month, is not as critical as he is made out to be, reported Hindustan Times. According to the producer, Sanjay was undergoing preliminary treatment and would emerge victorious in his battle.
Speaking to The Times Of India (TOI), Rahul slammed rumours that Sanjay was terminally ill. “This is utter rubbish. Sanju is undergoing preliminary treatment in Mumbai and results of certain tests have yet to come. He’s a fighter and will come out of this too as a winner – I don’t have an iota of doubt on this and this reaction is just not based on emotion but facts too. Please stop speculating, and if still, you have to do something, just wish good for him,” he said.
‘Torbaaz’, one of Sanjay’s upcoming films and is scheduled for a direct-to-digital release on Netflix. Last month, the actor had shared his first look from the film and written, “A man rises from personal tragedy to lead a group of children from a refugee camp to victory, transforming their lives through the game of cricket. It’s almost time to play!”
Sanjay, who is on a break from work has not officially revealed the nature of his diagnosis. However, a source from Lilavati Hospital said that he has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, HT reported sources as saying.
