Rakesh Roshan, the ever-smiling fitness enthusiast and one hell of a filmmaker is battling an early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat.
Hrithik Roshan in an emotional post said that:
“Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldnt miss gym on surgery day. He is probably the strongest man I know. Got diagnosed with early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat a few weeks ago, but he is in full spirits today as he proceeds to battle it. As a family we are fortunate and blessed to have a leader like him.
Love you Dad.”
Sussanne Khan, ex-wife of Hrithik Roshan said that Rakesh Roshan “stronger than any super hero all will go smoothly.”
Narendra Modi, PM of India, also joined in wishing a quick recovery for Rakesh Roshan and said:
“Dear Hrithik, praying for the good health of Shri Rakesh Roshan Ji. He is a fighter and I am sure he will face this challenge with utmost courage.”
