yesterday, Hrithik Roshan took to his social media accounts to announce that veteran filmmaker-actor Rakesh Roshan had to undergo surgery after being diagnosed with throat cancer.
“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,” wrote Hrithik.
“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,” the actor wrote with a picture of his father standing side-by-side him in a gym.
Celebs from the industry were worried and sent in their good wishes for Rakesh Roshan. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also wished good health to the filmmaker, calling him a “fighter”.
