Just a few days back, Hrithik Roshan shocked the nation when he took to social media to announce that his father and film-maker Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with ‘early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat’. Alongside a picture of the father-son duo, Hrithik penned a heart wrenching note for his father as he wrote, “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.”

A day later, after the surgery, which happened to be Hrithik’s birthday, the actor took to Twitter to thank all the fans for their love and alongside a picture of the entire Roshan khandan, Hrithik announced that his father’s surgery went well. And while Rakesh Roshan underwent his surgery for throat cancer, miles away, his best friend Rishi Kapoor too is undergoing a medical treatment and although there hasn’t been any clear announcement about the treatment from the actor but Neetu Kapoor, recently, hinted at Rishi Kapoor suffering from cancer as he captioned a family picture on Instagram as ‘Hope in future cancer is only a zodiac sign.’ Soon after Roshan’s surgery, Rishi Kapoor wished all the luck to his friend on Twitter as he wrote, “Way to go Roshans! All is well!” On September 29, 2018, Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter to announce that he is traveling to America for a medical treatment as he wrote, “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus”of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes,I  will be back soon!”  

For all those who don’t know, Rishi and Rakesh have been friends for over 40 years, having starred together in the 1975 blockbuster film- Khel Khel Mein and in an interview to Deccan Chronicle, when the Krrish director was asked about Rishi Kapoor, he said, “For Rishi and me, everything is Khel Khel Mein.”

Doesn't matter if Rishi Kapoor is suffering from Cancer, what matters is his long absence from the silver screen! Miss seeing him!!!

Everyone knows Rishi Kapoor is suffering from cancer. Not everyone wants to discuss their health problems with the media. It's not like anyone truly cares. They have always been somewhat quiet so they are choosing to remain that way. Not sure why it bothers people.

Does this mean he is confirming Rishi Kapoor is suffering from Cancer?

Yes
