The 61-year-old actor also took to Twitter to share the news with his fans. He wrote:

“Just wanted to assure everyone that I’m doing well. I’m currently under medical observation & my COVID-19 report is negative.

“With the help & care of the doctors, nurses & staff at Lilavati hospital, I should be home in a day or two. Thank you for your well wishes & blessings.”

Later, it was reported that Dutt had developed fluid in his chest. A source from the hospital said:

“When he was taken to the hospital, he was low on oxygen saturation. But when his Covid-19 report came negative, we ran cancer analysis and it came positive.”

On Tuesday, 11 August 2020, Sanjay Dutt took to Instagram to make an announcement. He said:

“Hi friends, I am taking a short break from work for some medical treatment.
