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,”.

PM Modi saw the post and sent good wishes to Hrithik Roshan for his dad via twitter. PM re-twitted the post and wrote- “Dear Hrithik, praying for the good health of Shri Rakesh Roshan Ji. He is a fighter and I am sure he will face this challenge with utmost courage”.
