Up until now many celebs have been diagnosed
with cancer. Now, Hritik Roshan’s father Rakesh Roshan is also included in that
list. The actor is battling early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat
and is upto undergo a surgery.
“Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldn’t miss gym on surgery day. He is probably the strongest man I know. Got diagnosed with early stages squamous cell carcinoma of the throat a few weeks ago, but he is in full spirit 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 Roshan posted this on his twitter account.
Actor’s fans commented with messages like ‘get
well soon’ and many more. Rakesh Roshan is an actor who turned into director and
is now working on Krrish 4.
Earlier this week, Hrithik Roshan, opened up to a leading channel about the whole Kangana Ranaut controversy. Since then, there has been no stopping the handsome star. Today, Hrithik spoke to another channel about the issue and how it affected him deeply.
He said, “The only time I actually had tears in my eyes was when I saw this huge Amul hoarding with my brand Krrish, which is something that is built by me, it is like my baby. And that brand was completely demolished on that visual. And it said something like Krrish being run out, being caught stealing some cheese or something. That was probably the only day when I felt that this is not right.”
He added, “I date it back to my first film, Kaho Na Pyar Hai when the same Amul hoarding had me up and called me a phenomenon.
And I just watched the entire journey and I said, ‘You know, I have to find a way to detach from the hoarding that said I was a phenomenon and I have to find a way to detach from the Amul hoarding that is making me look like this disgusting creep. I really need to find what I think of myself as my identity. And I need to work on that. And I need to make it so strong that I can be bullet-proof against any perceptions from the outside world. That is a failing from all of us. We build our identity with what others say about us. That is how we have been brought up. Your parents tell you that you are strong. This was a fantastic lesson for me. Hard one, but to be walking into a party all by myself and still be able to contribute to people, make people laugh, spread positivity while they are looking at the hoardings and judging me.”
Earlier in an ad made my Amul, you can see the same quirky take by Amul on Kangana and Hrithik controversy-
Hrithik, who chose to remain silent over the entire controversy with Kangana for a while finally opened up on Thursday by issuing statements describing his side of the story and revealing a few details that the public was unaware about. Here’s the Hrithik’s statement-
Among all this, Hrithtik also appeared for an interview on Republic TV. Here’s the full interview-
And a day after he appeared on Republic TV, for his first ever interview over his spat with Kangana Ranaut, actor Farhan Akhtar penned down an open letter appealing everyone to not take sides or jump into a conclusion in the matter until the truth prevails.
Without naming the two involved parties, the 43-year-old actor, who also co-starred with Hrithik in ZNMD(Zindagi na milegi dobara) expressed his worries and concerns over some sections of media who treated the case in an unfair way by only pushing one side of the story without any evidence of the claims made by the actress.
“Some of our most reputed journalists have, consciously or unconsciously, pushed one side of the narrative without having or presenting any evidence to back the claims being made by the woman. They’ve accepted her story at face value.
Isn’t this discriminating against the other party?”
Farhan further mentioned that being an initiator of MARD foundation in 2013, he’s aware of a few cases where men were stalked, harassed and falsely accused.
Farhan further highlighted a series of events where Kangana’s case in the matter seemed weak against Hrithik and concluded the post by urging people to stop vilifying the actor on the basis of unsubstantiated statements. If a woman was to receive these sort of emails from a man and she claimed harassment, what would your immediate reaction be?
Would you have given the man the benefit of doubt by believing him if he said they were in a relationship and she had hacked into his computer and sent herself the mails..?
Chances are you wouldn’t.
This is what he posted on Facebook:
Supporting and agreeing to what Farhan said, celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and Yami Gautam also re-tweeted his post on their Twitter account.
For over a year now, we had only heard Kangana Ranaut narrating her side of the story and Rakesh Roshan who’s been backing and speaking up in public for his son Hrithik in the on-going spat between both the actors.
Following his move, several Bollywood celebrities including Twinkle Khanna and Dia Mirza came out in his support.
Last year, the actor had sent a legal notice to the actress for allegedly maligning his image by calling him her “silly ex” in an interview. Kangana didn’t stop there and made many serious allegations against Hrithik.
In April this year, he even filed a police complaint against the actress accusing her of sending explicit emails, stalking and hounding him.
Get ready to see your heart-throbbing actor Hrithik Roshan in a fresh new avatar. Here, the ‘Greek-God’ is all set to play the role of math genius Anand Kumar in the Vikas Bahl-directed biopic on the Super 30 founder.
Making sure he captures the true spirit of Kumar’s life, the biopic will witness the actor in a ‘nerd-look’ wearing a pair of cool glasses.
Doing their individual homework, the director-actor duo had also drawn together the relevant study material referring to the biopic.
Earlier the movie witnessed a tug-of-war between the two best friends of producers, Madhu Mantena and Priti Sinha with their respective favourites, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar.
Hritik also had met Anand Kumar at his Juhu residence when the latter visited Mumbai last month to film a special episode for Amitabh Bachchan’s game show Kaun Banega Crorepati.
Confirming that Hrithik will be slipping into his shoes, this biopic will essay the Patna-based Anand Kumar who in a strive to educate the poverty-ridden meritorious students to crack JEE, the entrance examination for the Indian Institute of Technology. The praiseworthy initiative by Anand was undertaken in 2002 to coach the handpicked troop of 30 brilliant under-privileged students.
The math wizard made what it seems to be impossible in a real-life when 18 students cracked the exam in the initial year elevating the count to 22 and 28 in 2004 and 2006 whereas, in 2008 and 2009, it was a catastrophe clean sweep. Now, Kumar’s Ramanujan School of Mathematics is competing on the international platform and is among the world’s four most innovative schools.
The 21st century Ramanujan has recently announced to expand his wing. Taking his initiative further, mother Jayanti Devi cooks meals for this bunch of young innovators.
Expressing how privileged he feels, director Vikas says, “Truth, they say, is stranger than fiction and so is Anand’s life story!”
Here, real life speaks more than fiction and thus our directors are going crazy to film real-life heroes
