There were reports of cancer in the year 2018
Rakesh Roshan was diagnosed with throat cancer in the year 2018. The actor told me in an old interview, I remember that it was 15th December 2018. I got a call informing me that my biopsy report was positive. The doctor said that the lump under the tongue will have to be cut, due to which I was very scared, but I did not give up. During the treatment, I had lost 10 kg, but I got over it after getting treatment from the best doctors. I now spend an hour and a half in the gym every day.
