Love and prayers for all the cancer fighters out there, hope and belief goes a long way. You can WIN this battle!” the actor posted on Twitter alongside three pictures of him and his son.

A pall of gloom had descended in the Mumbai film industry ever since actors such as Sonali Bendre and Imran Khan disclosed they were undergoing treatment for cancer. 2018 also saw veterans such as Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty visiting US for treatment for some undisclosed disease. Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife, Tahira Kashyap took to Instagram where she revealed that she was being treated for stage 0 brest cancer. In January this year, actor Hrithik Roshan disclosed that is father director-producer Rakesh Roshan has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
While Sonali Bendre has returned back to Mumbai in December last year, Imran Khan has remained out of media glare since May last year.
