Sanjay Dutt Plans Affordable De-Addiction Centres In India

Sanjay Dutt has revealed plans to set up drug rehabilitation centres across the country. The actor is currently in high level talks with the Central Government to make sure that his project becomes a reality.

“I am in talks with the government; the approvals are yet to come through. All details will be finalised once we get necessary permissions. We need to offer effective facilities and counselling help,” the actor said.


Dutt’s history with drug addiction is well-known. Due to his status and wealth, Dutt could afford a stint in an American rehab centre. Because not everybody has his access to wealth, Dutt plans to institute low-cost institute in India.

He told Mid-Day, “I could opt for (expensive de-addiction) treatment and rehab in America because my family could afford it. Not everyone can.”

A biopic on Dutt, directed by Rajkumar Hirani is in the works, with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead.
