Notably, Hrithik took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal this his father, now 69, was suffering from early stage of squamous cell carcinoma of the throat. Sharing a gym photo with him before his surgery, he wrote, “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. Love you Dad.”
Among the many celebs who wished for senior Roshan’s speedy recovery was Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “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. @RakeshRoshan_N,” he tweeted.
