Recently, Dutt had opened about his cancer diagnosis for the first time. In a video shared by his hairstylist Aalim Hakim, the actor had said, “Hi, this is Sanjay Dutt! Good to be back in the salon. Got a haircut. If you see this, this is a recent scar in my life, but I will beat it. I will be out of this cancer soon.”
