Sanjay Dutt opened up for the first time about his battle with cancer in an Instagram video he shot with celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim.

Dutt, who got himself a haircut at Hakim's salon, pointed to a scar designed by the hairstylist as part of the haircut and said, 'This is a recent scar in my life, but I'll beat it. I'll be out of this cancer soon.'

In August, the 61-year-old actor had announced that he would be taking a break from his professional commitments to focus on medical treatment, amid reports that he was battling lung cancer.

Dutt, along with producer-wife Maanayata Dutt, had flown to Dubai in September to be with their children, nine-year-old twins Shaahran and Iqra.

Meanwhile, Dutt is growing his beard for the sequel of the 2018 action-drama KGF as he is scheduled to start shooting for the film next month.

The period action film, starring Yash, marks Dutt's Kannada debut.

'I need the look for the film as we are starting in November. I am happy to be on the sets again. There's Shamshera's dubbing lined up too, so that will be fun. It's good to be back,' he added.

Dutt said he has started working out again, after an apparent weight loss due to the treatment.

'I'm getting my muscles back, they're coming back slowly. I'll get out of this.'
