Earlier in the day, Dutt, who was hospitalised in the weekend due to breathing problem and chest discomfort, conveyed to fans that he is taking a break. Dutt, 61, said he needed the break for medical treatment and urged fans not to pay attention to any other speculation.

"Hi friends, I am taking a short break from work for some medical treatment. My family and friends are with me and I urge my well-wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon," read the note Dutt shared on social media.

Upon being hospitalised on Saturday evening, the actor underwent a Covid-19 test that showed negative result.

Dutt is among the busiest actors in Bollywood. Last year, he was seen in three films--Kalank, Prassthanam and Panipat.

He will next be seen in Sadak 2, along with Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur. Sadak 2 is a follow-up of Mahesh Bhatt's 1991 hit Sadak and is produced by his brother Mukesh Bhatt. The sequel reunites the original film's lead pair of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt. Sadak 2 marks Mahesh Bhatt's return to filmmaking after 20 years.
