Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has revealed that his father Rakesh Roshan is battling cancer. Actor-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, 69, has been diagnosed with early stage of squamous cell carcinoma of the throat. Soon after Hrithik broke the news on social media, wishes came in from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and members of the film fraternity.
Hrithik shared the news via social media on Tuesday morning, before his father was going in for a surgery.
“Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldn’t 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,” Hrithik captioned the picture in which the father-son duo have struck the same pose,” Hrithik posted.
