Lucknow, June 14: Actor Sanjay Dutt says acid attack survivors are real-life heroes and an inspiration to all.
Sanjay on Wednesday visited Sheroes Hangout cafe here after receiving an invite from the team through Twitter. Overwhelmed by the invitation, he made sure to spend some quality time with acid attack survivors who run the café.
“They are real-life heroes and these strong women are an inspiration to all of us. They have shown unwavering strength to fight and survive in the most difficult situations,” Sanjay said in a statement to IANS.
“It is truly an honour to be receiving the love and support of such beautiful souls,” he added.
Sanjay is shooting for the Hindi remake of the Telugu cult classic “Prasthaanam” here.
The first day, first shot of @prasthaanamfilm.
Even now, I feel excited about such new beginnings. All the best, team?
