Taking to his official Instagram handle, the Kaabil actor shared a picture with his dad, Rakesh ji from what looks like a gym session and captioned the picture as, “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." Here’s the picture:

In an interview with IANS, the Dil Se actress shared, “I can say only one thing that there is a way out. One should not give up because there is treatment available to this disease.

Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan are counted amongst the most popular father-son pairs in Bollywood. In a throwback 2012 interview with Filmfare, Rakesh ji had shared interesting details about his and Hrithik’s relationship. He had then revealed, “I wanted to give it [Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai ] the scale it deserved. The music of the film seemed promising. Hrithik and Ameesha Patel had done well. I knew the movie wouldn’t let me down. So I didn’t hold myself back. Because Hrithik gives me time I can tap new genres. No one would have made Koi... Mil Gaya (2003) after Kaho Naa... People said I was mad to make Hrithik play a mentally challenged character. I’m also proud of Kites (2010). We attempted something new – crossover cinema!”

Further speaking about his son’s diligence he had stated, “Even when he assisted me, he took a keen interest in filmmaking. He never flaunted his status. He stayed with the unit and not in a five star hotel with us. He has seen my failures. He knows that in the long run it’s only hard work that pays. If you don’t attend a party it won’t matter, but if you don’t deliver it will.” As most of you would know, Rakesh ji shares a very friendly equation with Hrithik. “I got married at 22. My older daughter Sunaina was born when I was 23. I was 24 when Hrithik was born. I understand what he wishes to say from a mere glance.” (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor And Alia Bhatt Are All Set To Exchange Rings This Summer? Details Inside)
