As per reports, Sanjay's wife Maanayata Dutt and kids-Shahraan and Iqra, who were stuck in Dubai due to the COVID lockdown, returned to Mumbai on Wednesday at 1.30 am. Maanayata, hours later, issued a statement asking people to not 'fall prey to speculation and unwarranted rumours'.

Reportedly, in 2014, Maanayata was diagnosed with liver cancer. Sanjay's mother late Nargis' life was cut short due to pancreatic cancer. The Panipat actor's first wife Richa Sharma passed away due to brain tumour.
