Rakesh Roshan is battling early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat and is all set to undergo surgery.

Actor Hrithik Roshan revealed his father’s condition in a post on Instagram.

He wrote, “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.”

Rakesh is a Bollywood actor-turned-director, who has delivered multiple hits, including ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’.

In July 2018, Hrithik’s sister Sunaina Roshan penned down a blog post on battling cancer.

Bollywood stars Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre are also undergoing treatment for cancer.
