Sanjay Dutt emerges victorious from battle with cancer

Actor Sanjay Dutt on Wednesday announced on twitter that he has emerged victorious from his battle with cancer. On the occasion of his kids’ birthday, Dutt shared that he is happy to give the gift of “health and well-being of the family” to his children.

Sharing a note on social media, the KGF: Chapter 2 actor wrote, “The last few weeks were very difficult time for my family and me. But like they say, God gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. And today, on the occasion of my kids’ birthday, I am happy to come out victorious from this battle and be able to give them the best gift I can-the health and well-being of our family.”

He also expressed gratitude towards fans and well-wishers, “This wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering faith and support from all of you. I am eternally grateful to my family, friends and all the fans who have stood by me and been my source of strength through this trying time. Thank you for the love, kindness and the countless blessings that you have sent my way.”

Back in August, Sanjay Dutt had announced on social media that he was taking a break from work for medical reasons. It was soon reported that the ‘Vaastav’ actor had been diagnosed with lung cancer and he underwent chemotherapy treatment at a hospital in Mumbai.

The actor, who was last seen in Sadak 2, opened up about his cancer diagnosis for the first time last week in an Instagram video shared by celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim.

He is gearing up for the shooting of his next, KGF: Chapter 2, in November. The period action film, starring Yash, marks Sanjay Dutt’s Kannada debut.
