Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan shared a health update on his father and veteran filmmaker-director Rakesh Roshan. Hrithik has said that his father is fine after undergoing surgery for an early stage of throat cancer.
Hrithik took to his official Twitter handle to share an update. He posted a latest picture of Rakesh Roshan along with the family members.
In the picture, Rakesh, who underwent surgery after he was diagnosed with early stage of squamous cell carcinoma on January 8, was seen with a Ryles tube.

Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldnt 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 family has a cancer survivor in Sunaina Roshan, Hrithik’s sister, who had been diagnosed with cervical cancer.
