Actor-producer Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with early-stage squamous cell carcinoma. The news was broken by his son Hrithik Roshan on social media.
Taking to Instagram, Hrithik, on Tuesday, shared a picture in which he can be seen posing with his father in a gym. The veteran actor's bright smile is proof that his health struggles have not taken a toll on his high spirits.
While Hrithik, being a fitness enthusiast, has always been in a good shape, it was a pleasant surprise to see Rakesh Roshan just as ripped as his son.
"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," the 'Kaabil' wrote in the caption.
