Having been a victim of drug abuse himself he said that he feels the responsibility to play his part in spreading awareness about this evil of society. He, in the video, said that “it was a remarkable experience to initiate the drug-free India campaign earlier this year with guruji Sri-Sri Ravi Shankar.

The actor used the caption as, “Today on World Drug Day, let us continue our mission.” In the video, Sanjay Dutt has shared his own experience with drug addiction and he discussed what it took him to withdraw himself from the clutches of addiction. He urged people to say no to drugs. The actor’s struggles with alcohol and drugs in his debutant years of Bollywood career were depicted in his biopic ‘Sanju’. Ranbir Kapoor portrayed the role of Sanjay Dutt in the film and it did a marvelous business at Box Office and was praised.
