Hrithik Roshan’s dad, Rakesh Roshan diagnosed with cancer

After the news of Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre being diagnosed with the deadly disease of cancer, famous Bollywood director Rakesh Roshan and his family has suffered the same jolt.

The 69-year-old who has been the genius behind blockbusters like Karan Arjun, Khoon Bhari Maang, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and Koi Mil Gaya has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the throat.

Taking the unfortunate moment, Rakesh Roshan’s son and superstar Hrithik Roshan took to Instagram to share a heartfelt note for his father.

Posting a picture of his him and his father at the gym, Hrithik mentioned that Rakesh Roshan will undergo surgery from today. Hailing the spirit of the man who did not miss his workout session even on the day of treatment, Hrithik added that his father has always been an inspiration for him and his family. A ‘true leader’ to be exact.

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.

However, what comes as a piece of positive news is that the disease has been identified at an early stage. We hereby wish Rakesh Roshan a speedy recovery.
