Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was spotted chewing paan masala at an event of Nargis Dutt Cancer Foundation in Mumbai on Thursday. The event was organised in the memory of his late mother to help the needy.

Ironically throughout the event, Dutt could not refrain from chewing paan masala. He kept on opening the sachet and stuffing it in his mouth.

His wife Maanayata and sisters Namrata and Priya were also present at the event.

Studies have shown that pan masala causes genotoxicity-- a harmful action on a cell's genetic material. Certain substances in pan masala interact with DNA and renders them potentially mutagenic-wherein the DNA structure may change. It is at this level, where even the cancer starts.
