Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh precisely knows what it is like to have suffered a serious illness and recover from it with flying colours. Due to the same, Yuvraj Singh empathised with Bollywood renowned actor Sanjay Dutt, who got admitted to the hospital due to short of breathlessness. The 38-year old took to Twitter and posted a heartwarming message.
Sanjay Dutt complained of lack of breathlessness and was rushed to the hospital, but discharged on Monday. The superstar’s oxygen level was fluctuating between 90-92% when he got admitted. The symptoms warranted a COVID-19 test; however, the examination came out negative. Reportedly, Sanjay had suffered fluid in his chest. Furthermore, his diagnosis stated that he had stage four lung cancer.
Yuvraj Singh labelled Sanjay Dutt as a fighter and that he knew what it was to be in that position. The former all-rounder strongly backed him to overcome the tough phase and kept the actor in his prayers and wishes.
Below is Yuvraj Singh’s tweet:
You are, have and always will be a fighter @duttsanjay. I know the pain it causes but I also know you are strong and will see this tough phase through. My prayers and best wishes for your speedy recovery.
