Ever since the release of Sanju directed by Rajkumar Hirani featuring Ranbir Kapoor in the title role, fans got a real and closer look at the life of Sanjay Dutt. His struggle with drugs was one of the major highlights of the movie.
Sanjay Dutt has always been vocal about drug abuse. Now, he has associated himself with an essential and major campaign to fight drug abuse all over the country. Educational institutions in Chandigarh and Hisar will kickstart the campaign in a big way from February 18 and 19 respectively.
Talking about the campaign, Sanjay said,
“I have experienced the menace of drugs first hand. I know the havoc it creates and so this cause is close to my heart. The aim is to make this campaign India’s largest. It’s very easy to get sucked into drug abuse, but very difficult to get out of it. It all starts when minds are young and impressionable. We have to firmly tell youngsters that drug abuse is not cool. That’s why we want to reach out to the youth of this country and spread the word through campuses.”
Sanjay Dutt took to Twitter to share the poster of #DrugFreeIndia campaign with a message,
“I always wanted to do something to uproot drug addiction from India. The #DrugFreeIndia campaign is a step towards that! Because of my personal experiences, it’s a cause very close to my heart & I want to help the youth of our country. Thank you @SriSri guruji for your support 🙏”
