Tuesday started on a rather sad note. Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan took to social media and revealed that his father and actor-director Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat. Ever since Hrithik shared the tragic news, many Bollywood celebrities have been commenting on his post, praying for Rakesh’s speedy recovery.
In his post, Hrithik shared a photo of his dad from their workout session along with the caption, “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,” his caption read further.
Commenting on the same, actor Tiger Shroff wrote, “Superhero DNA, overnight recovery.” Meanwhile, Hrithik’s former wife Sussanne Khan commented, “He is stronger than any superhero all will go smoothly.
Celebs like Abhishek Bachchan, Sanjay Kapoor, Vishal Dadlani and Anita Shroff Adajania also commented on the post. Take a look.
Squamous cell carcinoma is a type of cancer which is characterised by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the throat. (Also Read: Rakesh Roshan diagnosed with cancer, fans wish the actor a ‘speedy recovery’ – read comments)
