Hrithik Roshan took to social media to reveal that his father, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, was diagnosed with early-stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat a few weeks ago. This particular type of cancer is characterised by the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the throat.

Hrithik shared a picture with his father before their workout and 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. Love you Dad," the actor added. The comments section has been flooded with get-well-soon wishes from fans and well-wishers.

On the work front, Rakesh Roshan was all set to shoot the fourth instalment of the popular Krrish franchise, which would see his son, Hrithik returning as the caped crusader. Krrish 4 is slated to hit the theatres on Christmas 2020.

Rakesh Roshan started his career as an actor in 1970 film Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani and followed it up with films like Buniyaad, Khoobsurat, Kaamchor and Bhagwan Dada among others. He made his debut as a director with 1987 film Khudgarz. He has also directed films like Khoon Bhari Maang, King Uncle, Koyala and Karan Arjun. He launched his son Hrithik in 2000 film Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai and they also collaborated on Koi... Mil Gaya and the Krrish series. Rakesh Roshan last produced Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and his next project is Krrish 4, again with Hrithik Roshan.
