Rakesh Roshan recovering well post-surgery

Ever since Hrithik Roshan announced on social media that his father Rakesh Roshan was afflicted with throat cancer, well wishers and friends have been trying to glean more information on the senior Roshan's health.

Now everyone can rest easy. He underwent a surgical procedure on Tuesday, and the actor-filmmaker is recovering well. Responding to a query by Deccan Chronicle on his health, Rakesh Roshan replied, 'I am feeling all right, thank you. Surgery is done and all is okay. God is great.'

Another source close to Rakesh Roshan reveals, 'Ever since the diagnosis, Rakeshji has been upbeat, cheerful and not at all daunted by the setback. He went into surgery with his wife, brother (composer Rajesh Roshan), son Hrithik and daughter Sunaina by his side, and the surgery went off smoothly. He is expected home by the end of this week.'

In an earlier conversation Rakesh Roshan had once said, 'I've always been a fighter and I believe in karma. I've tried to do the right things in life. Somewhere I believe your deeds will be reflected in what you get in life. There will be setbacks, but I firmly believe God is watching over me and my family.'
