We recently caught up online with Jackie Shroff and asked him whether he had reached out to Sanjay after hearing the unfortunate news. Jackie replied in the affirmative and said, “I sent him a text message.” Jackie and Sanjay have done quite a few films together- ‘Mission Kashmir‘, ‘Kartoos‘, ‘Eklavya‘ and ‘Khalnayak‘ to name just a few.
Added Jackie, “Sanju baba is like a phoenix. He has been through a lot of problems in his life and I am sure he is going to rise and shine through this too.”
Sanjay’s wife Maanayata was in Dubai with their twins Iqra and Shahraan when Sanjay learned about his ailment after he landed up at Lilavati Hospital (Bandra) complaining of breathlessness and underwent a series of detailed tests over a span of 3 days. Maanayata and the kids flew back to Mumbai, last week.
The entire industry is shocked by the news of Sanjay’s ill-health and praying that he gets well soon. We at ETimes too pray for his speedy recovery.
