Mumbai: Bollywood’s ‘Deadly Dutt’ aka Sanjay Dutt is a tough nut to crack, for the actor continued shooting for ‘Rascals’ despite tearing a tendon in his elbow during a vigorous work out session.

Talking to a daily, a source said,”Sanju has been working over the past year to keep himself fit and it shows! He has stopped drinking and has shed more than 16 kilos now. A couple of days ago, the actor was routinely working out in his gym at his Bandra residence. He was working on his triceps when some weights came crashing down on his arms. The CEO of Sanjay Dutt Productions, Dharam Oberoi immediately rushed his boss to a doctor and got his X-rays done.”

Sanjay is currently shooting for ‘Rascals’, his home production being directed by David Dhawan.

“A concerned Sanju wanted to resume shooting the same day in Mulund where the entire unit was present along with Arjun Rampal. He knew that postponing the shoot would create a lot of hassles for the entire schedule, as it was an action sequence. He went on sets, completed the shoot and rushed home,” added the source.

When enquired, Dharam Oberoi said, “Baba hurt his elbow tendon badly but did not let the injury come in the way of his shooting schedule for ‘Rascals’. He visited the doctor, took X-rays, recieved the necessary treatment, applied ice packs and immediately rushed off to complete his day`s work. He`s a thorough professional.”

Now that’s what we call sincerity!
