Despite undergoing treatment for cancer, Sanjay Dutt has returned to work to complete his outstanding project ‘Shamshera’.
The actor re-commenced shoot for the Yash Raj Films project on Sunday and Monday.
A source told Mid-Day, “Ranbir Kapoor had finished shooting his scenes last month. Sanjay sir had two days’ patchwork shoot left before Karan could call it a wrap on the dacoit drama. Producer Aditya Chopra had requested the actor to take his time before returning to the set,” reveals a trade source. Given the actor’s frail health, the producer personally ensured that the shoot was conducted with minimal crew and in adherence with the strictest safety measures. “Everyone involved had to undergo a COVID test before s/he joined the senior actor on the floor.”
There was talk that Dutt was planning to get treatment for cancer in the US but it now seems there has been a change of plan. The source added, “After several discussions, Sanju and Maanayata have decided to pursue treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in December as his children, Shahraan and Iqra, will have their winter holidays then. Sanju wants his kids by his side as he battles the illness.” The treatment will continue in Mumbai.
