Hrithik in a post yesterday had announced the sad news with a picture of the father-son duo.
His post read, “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.” Replying to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tweet wishing speedy recovery to Mr Roshan, Hrithik updated that the surgery was successful.
