Hrithik Roshan had shocked the fans when he had taken to to social media to reveal that father and director Rakesh Roshan was diagnosed with cancer. The actor had also stated that the ailing filmmaker is undergoing surgery to fight cancer cells of the throat. Of course, it was a relief when he also posted pictures of him after a successful surgery. An elated Hrithik had tweeted a picture of the family walking out of the hospital with much brightness on their faces. They even posed for the camera and the caption ringed in louder- "Cant stop. Wont stop. We begin again. And again."
And the best part is, Hrithik Roshan was absolutely right. There is no stopping Rakesh Roshan. In fact, he is already onto work and gotten back to work like nothing happened. In an interview with Spotboye, the filmmaker opened up about his battle with the deadly C. He said, "It all began with a blister which refused to go despite using several applications of prescriptions from my family doctor. It was a small one- no pain, no itching. One day, I had gone to meet a friend of mine in Hinduja Hospital. While walking out, I just saw a board of an ENT surgeon outside his cabin. I met him impromptu and he advised me biopsy. I don't know why but I had a gut right from the beginning that I have contracted cancer."

Recalling the day when he got to know about the cancer, he said, "I was at Hrithik's place when I got a call that I had tested positive in biopsy. It was Dec 15 (2018), I clearly remember. I spoke to my doctor and he advised MRI and CT scan. I got a bit scared when I was told that my tongue may have to undergo a cut and do some grafting. I said 'I don't want to do all this'. But despite all, he went through it and more specifically, after a "Dec 31 party with my friends. None of them was told about my cancer."
When asked about the procedure and its aftermath, Rakesh Roshan revealed, "I went through it on Jan 8. I was back in office on Jan 12. 3 weeks later my chemotherapy sessions began at Kokilaben Hospital, they used to take about 4-5 hours. Tongue is the worst place to have cancer. You may not be able to drink water coffee, tea. Even taste buds change and things may not taste to you as they should. I went through those hassles for 2-3 months. I lost 10 kg but have regained 3 kg now, I had become weak because in cancer treatment, your good cells also tend to die."

"Anyway now, I am much, much better. I have started gym 90 minutes every day. My personal trainer comes home, my stamina is back- but yes, it will take me another 6 months to be fully fit," he added. Not just that, he has also confirmed that, "I am analysing it again, making a few changes here and there. Yes, Krrish 4 will be my next directorial."
