- Sanjay Dutt shared a pic from Ganesh Puja at home
- "Ganpati Bappa Morya," the 61-year-old actor captioned his post
- Sanjay Dutt is undergoing medical treatment
On Ganesh Chaturthi, actor Sanjay Dutt shared a glimpse of Ganesh Puja at his Mumbai home with an adorable photo, also starring his wife Maanayata. Sanjay Dutt is currently on a break from work because of medical treatment and has frequented the hospital in the past few days. In his post, Sanjay Dutt wrote Ganesh Chaturthi festivities are low-key this year. "The celebrations aren't as huge as they used to be every year but the faith in Bappa remains the same. I wish that this auspicious festival removes all the obstacles from our lives and bless us all with health and happiness. Ganpati Bappa Morya," the 61-year-old captioned his post. Mr Dutt's caption could be a reference to his health condition and also to the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced Mumbai to tone down one the biggest festivals in the city.

Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanayata, who was stuck in Dubai because of the lockdown, recently flew down to Mumbai to be by the actor's side. In a statement, Maanayata asked for privacy and that the Dutts have chosen to deal with the situation with "positivity and grace": "As a family, we have decided to face this with positivity and grace. We are going to go about our life as normally as possible, with a smile, because this will be a tough fight and a long journey. And, we need to do this for Sanju, without any negativity setting in." Following Sanjay Dutt's announcement last week, several news reports suggested that he has been diagnosed with cancer. In her statement, Maanayata made a plea - "stop speculating the stage of his illness."
