Surgery is done and all is fine, Rakesh Roshan


Actor turned filmmaker Rakesh Roshan was diagnosed with throat cancer and he has undergone surgery which went off well.

After surgery, Rakesh Roshan affirmed that he is feeling well. While talking to Mid-day, the filmmaker said, “All is okay. I am fine. Surgery is done and all is fine. God is great. I am going to be back home on Friday or Saturday.”

According to the leading tabloid, a source close to Rakesh Roshan says, “Ever since the diagnosis, Rakeshji has been upbeat, cheerful and not at all daunted by the setback. He went into the surgery with his wife, brother (Rajesh Roshan), son Hrithik and daughter Sunaina by his side, and the surgery went smoothly. He is expected home by the end of this week.” 

Rakesh Roshan’s brother Rajesh Roshan had told the daily, “He is better now and recovering well. We were all very tense about the surgery and the entire family was in the hospital with him. God willing, he will be up in the next three days and should be discharged from the hospital.”

Rajesh also thanked PM Narendra Modi for his message. He said, “This was very big hearted of the Prime Minister and a huge encouragement for both the patient and his family.” 

Hrithik Roshan Instagrammed a gym photo with his dad and shared the news. In his post, he said that his dad would not "miss gym even on surgery day" and that he was in "full spirits." Hrithik wrote, "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."

Hours after Hrithik Roshan tweeted about his father’s surgery, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished Rakesh Roshan a very good health and called him a fighter.

"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," PM Modi tweeted.

Replying to PM Modi's tweet, Hrithik Roshan wrote: "Thank you Sir for your concern and good wishes. I am very happy to inform that according to the doctors his surgery has gone off well."
