The entire Bollywood news industry was shaken a few days ago with more devastating news in a year that has had no short supply of bad things occurring in entertainment news circles. It had been revealed that Sanjay Dutt is suffering from lung cancer for which the actor has also taken a sabbatical from work to undergo medical treatment. And now, the latest update on his health is sure to send more worrying signals to all friends, family, well-wishers and all his legion of fans out there.
Though no official comment has come in from Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital, where Sanjay Dutt has been admitted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), a source within the ward has informed E Times that the actor was brought in on low oxygen saturation and that his latest report has confirmed that he's been afflicted with “stage 4 lung cancer”.
“Fluid had accumulated in his lungs and because of that he was having breathing trouble. The fluid samples were sent for testing. Doctors said it could be tuberculosis or cancer. The reports on Wednesday confirmed that Sanjay is suffering from stage 4 lung cancer,” said the source.
Yesterday, Sanju Baba's wife, Maanayata Dutt, released an official statement thanking the actor's fans for their wishes. “There is a lot that the family has gone through in the past years but I am confident, this too shall pass. Sanju has always been a fighter, and so has our family. God has yet again chosen to test us to overcome the challenges ahead. All we seek is your prayers and blessings, and we know we will emerge as winners on the other side, as we always have. Let us use this opportunity to spread light and positivity,” read her statement.
Our prayers and best wishes are with Sanju and his family.
