Munna Bhai Sanjay Dutt now strongly wishes to set up drug rehabilitation centres across India to help people come out of this fatal addiction. He said that he is looking forward to the government for help in this matter and once that happens details will soon be circulated.
Munna Bhai said that a person under the effect of drugs must be aware of the dangerous effects it brings into a person’s life. He mentioned that since everyone cannot afford the expensive treatments and rehabs, he is planning to open affordable centres in India.
