Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is up and about after undergoing surgery for an early stage of throat cancer, his actor son Hrithik Roshan has said.
Hrithik shared a health update on his father as he spent time with the 69-year-old in a hospital here on his birthday.
Rakesh, who underwent surgery after he was diagnosed with early stage of squamous cell carcinoma on January 8, was seen with a Ryles tube.
“And he’s up and about. Power of love! Thank you all for being with him and helping him power through. Today was a great day,” Hrithik captioned the image.
The news that Rakesh was diagnosed with early stage of squamous cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer, was revealed by Hrithik earlier this week. It drew a lot of supportive messages for the senior Roshan from fans and the film fraternity.
The family has a cancer survivor in Sunaina Roshan, Hrithik’s sister, who had been diagnosed with cervical cancer.
