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. . Love you Dad.
Rakesh has been working on the fourth part of the hugely popular Krrish franchise where Hrithik plays the male lead. The female lead has not yet been confirmed by the production house.
In his career as an actor, Rakesh Roshan acted in more than 80 films. He debuted as a director with the 1987 film Khudgarz which was a blockbuster hit.
