Veteran Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung cancer yesterday (August 11) and this news came as a shocker for people across the country. It can be recalled that Sanjay Dutt was admitted to a hospital earlier this week, on August 8, after he complained of breathing problems. He made an important clarification that he was tested negative for Corona virus and requested his fans and followers not to worry. However, it has now come to everyone's notice that he's been diagnosed with lung cancer. Sanjay Dutt will be immediately leaving for the USA for medical treatment.

Since the cancer needs to be treated with immediate effect, Sanjay Dutt has decided to stop all his commitments and leave abroad for the treatment. Sanjay Dutt took to his Twitter page to mention that he would be taking a break from work for the time being. Sanjay Dutt's official note read, "Hi friends, I am taking a short break from work for some medical treatment. My family and friends are with me and I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon!". The fans and well wishers across the country have been praying for the 61 year old actor's speedy recovery and let us hope he recovers soon and bounces back in style.

As we all know, he is playing the main villain in the highly anticipated KGF: Chapter 2 starring Yash in the lead role. This mega biggie will feature Sanjay Dutt playing Adheera, the deadly villain and the expectations are huge among the fans. Sanjay Dutt's character look poster from KGF 2 was released recently and it created a huge buzz on social media. One can be sure that the face off between Yash and Sanjay Dutt is going to be one of the major highlights of KGF 2 and let us hope that we get to witness the epic clash very soon on the big screen.

Going by Sanjay Dutt’s current health condition, it looks like the shooting of the film will face an unexpected delay since a few sequences between Yash and Sanjay Dutt are still left to be canned including the climax. The makers had planned to resume the shooting by the middle of August, but looking at the current scenario it looks like the team has to wait for a few more weeks for Sanjay Dutt to return back in good health. In the meantime, the team might shoot scenes that don't involve Sanjay Dutt.

Directed by Prashanth Neel, KGF: Chapter 2 has music scored by Ravi Basrur and cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda. KGF: Chapter 2 will resume from where the first part ended. Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Malavika Avinash, Ananth Nag, Achyuth Kumar, Saran Shakthi form the supporting cast. Produced by Hombale Films, KGF: Chapter 2 will have a dubbed release in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi.
