MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt donated a mobile mammography unit to leading oncologist Dr. Advani’s ‘Helping Hand’ Foundation on behalf of his mother’s NGO, the Nargis Dutt Foundation here in Mumbai yesterday.
The troubled star, who is on extension before surrendering for his 3.5 year long prison sentence at the end of this month, is busy completing all his pending work assignments. However, his preoccupation didn’t stop Sanjay from taking time out for a good cause.
Dressed casually in a navy blue tee and grey slacks, Sanjay Dutt met with cancer patients on Carter Road, in Bandra, where he donated a mammography scanner ambulance bus on behalf of Nargis Dutt Foundation.
Speaking at the function, Sanjay was choked with emotion when he relayed his mother’s struggle against cancer. “Every woman must get herself checked for cancer and remain healthy,” he appealed.
Expressing solidarity with the cancer patients, an emotional Dutt said, “My family has always been with you and shall remain with you.”
Also present with Sanjay during his charity drive were his sisters Priya Dutt and Namrata Dutt.
