In a recent post on social media, Hritikh revealed that his director-producer father Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with an early stage cancer.

“Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldn’t miss gym even 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 prepares to battle it. As a family, we are fortunate and blessed to have a leader like him… Love you, dad,” Hrithik wrote.
