For the unversed, Nargis was admitted to Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in New York for cancer treatment. Post her return, she was admitted to Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital as her health deteriorated.
Nargis was one of the finest actresses of her time. She worked in many films like Awara, Barsaat, and Shree 420, among others. Her film Mother India was nominated for Oscars. The film also featured Sunil Dutt.
Coming back to Sanjay, he was diagnosed with cancer last year. But he is cancer-free now. In October 2020, he shared a statement where he wrote, “The last few weeks were very difficult time for my family and me. But like they say, God gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. And today, on the occasion of my kids’ birthday, I am happy to come out victorious from this battle and be able to give them the best gift I can–the health and well-being of our family.”
On the work front, Sanjay will be seen in KGF: Chapter 2 with Yash and Raveena Tandon. He will also be seen in Shamshera, Toolsidas Junior and Prithviraj.
