Hrithik had shared the news of Rakesh’s illness on Instagram. He had written along with a picture, “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.”

He is a fighter and I am sure he will face this challenge with utmost courage.”
