Earlier today, the Jodha Akbar actor took to his Instagram handle to share a picture with his father and reveal about Rakesh’s ill health. He captioned it, “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.” And as soon as the Krrish actor broke this news, fans and B-town celebs wished a speedy recovery to Rakesh Roshan.
Earlier, Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre were diagnosed with cancer. Speculations are also rife that Rishi Kapoor, who is undergoing medical treatment in New York is also battling with cancer.
Rakesh was reportedly occupied with the work from his upcoming film Krrish 4. He collaborated with Hrithik for films like Kaho Na… Pyar Hai, Krrish 3, Koi… Mil Gaya. All these films did wonders at the box office.
Hrithik and Sussanne tied the knot in 2000 but due to differences, the couple parted ways in 2014. They have two kids Hridhaan and Hrehaan Roshan. Even though Hrithik and Sussane are not together anymore, they still share a great bond and are seen going out on dinner dates with their kids.

On a professional front, Hrithik is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Super 30. The movie is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar. It was directed by Vikas Bahl. However, after #MeeToo allegations against him, he was asked to step down. It is all set to hit the screens on January 25 and will fight the box office battle with Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
