The senior Roshan will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

Hrithik shared an Instagram post in which the father-son duo have struck the same pose. Hrithik captioned the picture as: "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."
