Sanjay Dutt to complete Sadak 2 dubbing before medical break
Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was hospitalised last weekend due to breathing problems and chest discomfort, shared on Tuesday that he is taking a break for medical treatment
Before taking a break for medical treatment, actor Sanjay Dutt plans to wrap up the dubbing work of his upcoming film, Sadak 2.
"Sanjay will complete the last leg of dubbing for his film Sadak 2 by next week, before going on a medical break. He is overwhelmed with the outpouring of love coming his way ever since the news of his illness came out. This support is motivating him even more to give his fans his best through his work," said a source close to the actor and production.
Sanjay Dutt, who was hospitalised last weekend due to breathing problems and chest discomfort, shared on Tuesday that he is taking a break for medical treatment.
Although the actor or his family members have not revealed anything officially, industry insider Komal Nahta wrote on his verified Twitter account: "Sanjay Dutt diagnosed with lung cancer. Let's pray for his speedy recovery."
Sadak 2 marks the return of Mahesh Bhatt as director after two decades. The film stars his daughters Alia and Pooja Bhatt, along with Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. This film is a sequel to the 1991 hit, Sadak, starring Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt.
Meanwhile, the trailer of Sadak 2 has garnered more than 4.4 million dislikes, less than a day after being launched on YouTube. The backlash is attributed to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. The film is getting trolled, and parody posters are going viral. The hashtag #boycottsadak2 has been trending on Twitter ever since the film's first look was announced.
"Sanjay is very saddened by the negativity that the trailer of the film has received as Sadak holds a special place in his heart. It is a heartfelt emotion for him, not just a movie. He is hoping that people will rise above the trolling and hate, and look at the movie for its story and performances," added the source.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the film is skipping the traditional theatrical route, and going for a digital release. The film is slated to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar VIP on August 28.
