“If I'm supposed to die, I will just die, but I don't want any treatment,” says Sanjay Dutt

KGF actor Sanjay Dutt recently opened up about his lung cancer diagnosis in 2020, when he was shooting for the period action drama Shamshera. He has said the news about the disease wasn't shared with him properly as he did not have any family members by his side. Dutt was shooting for the highly anticipated  Yash starrer ‘KGF 2’ while undergoing cancer treatment. 

Talking about how he was told of his cancer diagnosis, the actor said, “I had a backache and was treated with a hot water bottle and painkillers until one day I couldn't breathe. I was taken to the hospital, but the thing was that the cancer news was not broken to me properly. My wife, my family, or my sisters, nobody was around me at that time. I was all alone and suddenly this guy comes and tells me you have cancer.”

"My wife was in Dubai, so Priya (sister Priya Dutt) came to me. My first reaction was that once you hear something like this, your whole life reflects back at you. I have a history of cancer in my family. My mom died of pancreatic cancer, and my wife (Richa Sharma) died of brain cancer. So, the first thing I said was that I don't want to take chemotherapy. If I'm supposed to die, I will just die, but I don't want any treatment, (sic)" said the ‘Shamshera’ actor.

His wife, Manyata, penned a powerful note around the release of ‘KGF 2’. Manayata had written about how the film was shot during their most vulnerable time. "The film has been a special journey for us in more ways than one. All those who have often labelled him as irresponsible, non-committed and a bad boy must watch this film to see his determination, dedication, and commitment. Sanju shot this film during the most vulnerable phase of his life... our lives. He shot uncomplainingly, all those strenuous scenes with the same passion as ever," she wrote.

On the work front, Sanjay Dutt is in talks for Sekhar Kammula and Dhanush’s much-anticipated film. Reportedly the actor has also been roped in for Lokesh Kangaraj directorial ‘Thalapathy67’ co-starring, Thalapathy Vijay and Trisha Krishnan.
