In the year 2020, Sanjay Dutt was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. It was a difficult time for the actor and his family. The actor fought back and has emerged stronger. Now, he has opened up about his cancer diagnosis. In an interview with Ranveer Allahbadia, Sanjay revealed that he had felt breathlessness and that was when the checkup was done. It was found that there was water in his lungs and what they had thought to be pneumonia actually turned out to be cancer.
He said, "How to break it to me, this was a big issue. I could have broken somebody's face. So, my sister came and told me. I said, 'Okay, I got cancer, now what?' Then you start planning things, will do this and that... But I did cry for over two-three hours because I was thinking about my kids and my life and my wife and everything. These flashes come and I said, 'I am going to stop getting weak.'"
Sanjay received help from Rakesh Roshan's doctor and they told him that he'd lose hair and things will happen. He shared, "They told me I'd vomit, so I told the doctor 'mereko kuch nahi hoga', I'll not lose hair, I'll not vomit, I won't lie on the bed, and she kind of smiled. I did my chemotherapy, and I came back and I sat on that bike for one hour and I cycled, I did that day after day, every day. After every chemo session I did that. It was crazy." He further revealed that he would go for Chemo, Dubai and then he used to go play badminton for two-three hours.
