Actor Sanjay Dutt recently joined his family in celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi and photos and videos of the actor went viral. Just a few weeks back, Sanjay Dutt announced that he is taking a break from work to seek medical treatment and post that, reports of the actor’s lung cancer diagnosis started doing rounds. Recently, Sanjay was also snapped heading to Kokilaben Hospital with sister Priya Dutt for preliminary tests and it was then that Maanayata Dutt released a statement confirming that he will complete his preliminary treatment in Mumbai itself. 

Now, the latest report in Mid-Day claims that Sanjay may have gotten a 5-year visa for the US on medical grounds and may seek treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre where his mother Nargis Dutt reportedly also was admitted between 1980 and 1981 for treatment of pancreatic cancer. The report had a source informing the daily that Sanjay had applied for the visa after learning about his illness. However, he faced some problem in getting clearance. 

But, a friend helped Sanjay to overcome that hurdle. A source told the daily, “Fortunately, one of his close friends helped the actor secure a five-year visa on medical grounds. He is expected to fly to New York with Maanayata and Priya, where he will pursue treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre.” Further, the report added that Sanjay’s daughter Trishala also lives in New York and that Maanayata and Priya are expected to fly with Sanjay. The source told the daily, “Sanju was considering travelling to Singapore if the US plan did not materialise. Thankfully, everything has worked out swiftly, and he is expected to leave at the earliest.”

Here's a glimpse of Sanjay and Maanayata's low-key Ganpati celebrations:

While nothing has been officially confirmed about the same, Sanjay’s fans have been praying for the actor since the news about diagnosis started doing rounds. In her statement, Sanjay’s wife Maanayata also urged everyone to not speculate about her husband’s stage of illness and to pray for his recovery. On the work front, Sanjay will be seen in Sadak 2 with Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Pooja Bhatt. The film is releasing on DisneyPlus Hotstar on August 28, 2020.

Anonymous : Why does this talentless waste of oxygen get special treatment? Oh right, because he is a product of nepotism and there are a bunch of losers that worship him and other talentless Bollywood "actors." Maybe his "lung cancer" will miraculously disappear like all of his "liver issues" that allowed him to keep getting a holiday from his jail sentence that was nothing short of a farce.

Anonymous : Because he was convicted of a crime of moral turpitude he can get a visa only if he gets a waiver. So it is not so much a friend helped, he probably had a lawyer file a waiver
