Veteran filmmaker Rakesh Roshan had been diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. The director was working on the script of the fourth installment of his Krrish series when he learned about his early-stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat. Rakesh Roshan underwent surgery for the same, post which the news of him being back in the pink of health and reworking on the script of Krrish 4 had come up. Recently, in an interview with Midday, the director spoke in length about his battle against cancer and revealed what made him stay strong.

Opening up for the first time since his diagnosis, Rakesh Roshan revealed that he could sense cancer even before his reports came. It was in September last year when the filmmaker noticed a blister below his tongue. His first instinct was thinking to himself if it was cancer. However, the doctor dismissed the possibility of cancer and treated the blister with medicines. It was only three months later when he went for a biopsy as suggested by the ENT specialist that he found out about his cancer.

He recounted the fear that he went through on listening to the traumatic procedures of treating a throat cancer such as cutting the tongue and removing a part of the skin from the wrist to replace it on the tongue. Rakesh Roshan disclosed about his fears and said that he felt better only after the doctor assured him that they would just make an incision on his neck to eradicate the node which was the source of cancer.

The director has now successfully won the battle against cancer and we hope that he remains all healthy and hearty. Rakesh Roshan is reported to step back from directing Krrish 4 for his recovery, however, it is believed that the filmmaker will keep close supervision on the film and make sure it goes smooth.
