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.
Hrithik further stated that Rakesh Roshan will be undergoing surgery for the same soon. On the work front, Rakesh Roshan was all set to helm the fourth installment of the popular ‘Krrish’ franchise, which would see Hrithik returning as the caped crusader. There were reports doing rounds on social media that the actor would play the superhero as well as the villain in the much-awaited movie.
Earlier, talking to PTI, Rakesh Roshan had said, “We will rope in an international action director for the film. We want to up the scale of action and VFX. Show something that is not done.” If reports are to be believed, Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif are among the top contenders for the leading actresses. The film ‘Krrish 4’ is scheduled to hit the theatres on Christmas 2020.
