MUMBAI (AFP) – Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, whose life has been so colorful and tragic it has been the subject of a biopic, has confirmed he has cancer after weeks of media speculation.
“It’s a recent scar in my life, but I’m going to beat it. I’m going to be out of this cancer soon,” said Dutt, 61, showing a scar from his left eyebrow to the side of his head. a recent Instagram video posted by Bollywood hairstylist Aalim Hakim.
Dutt has also confirmed that he will start filming his upcoming KGF: Chapter 2 movie in November.
In August, Dutt posted a statement on social media saying he was “taking a short break for medical treatment.”
The Hindi-speaking actor, nicknamed “Deadly Dutt”, served a prison sentence for possession of weapons supplied by the gangsters responsible for the bombings in Mumbai in 1993 and also battled drug addiction.
Dutt rose to fame in the mid-1980s in a series of action movies in which he performed his own stunts, earning his nickname.
But the star was also struggling with drug addiction, including heroin and cocaine, which was reportedly brought on by the pain of losing her mother, Indian screen icon Nargis Dutt, to cancer.
After a hiatus, he returned with a string of hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including Jeete Hain Shaan Se (We Live With Style, 1987), Saajan (Beloved, 1991) and Khal Nayak (Villain, 1993).
But his life took a dramatic turn when he was arrested following the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, then known as Bombay, in March 1993, which killed 257 people.
Dutt was ultimately convicted in 2006 for possessing weapons supplied by the mafia bosses who carried out the blasts. He was initially sentenced to six years and spent 18 months in prison before being released on bail in 2007, pending an appeal.
In 2013, his conviction was upheld, but his prison term was reduced to five years and he was returned to prison before being released in early 2016.
Dutt has also been married three times. His first wife, actress Richa Sharma, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1987 and died in 1996.
His second marriage to model Rhea Pillai ended in 2008 and he married former actress Manyata the same year.
In 2018, a film about his life, Sanju, was released covering the period from just before Dutt’s Bollywood debut with the romantic drama Rocky in 1981 until his release from prison in 2016.
