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.”

Actor Nafisa Ali Sodhi is also battling Peritoneal and Ovarian cancer and she announced the same with a picture with Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. The latter wished her luck.

Even the sister of Nawazuddin Siddiqui was just 18 when she was diagnosed with advanced stage of breast cancer
