Rakesh Roshan Turns 70 Without Celebrations



Except  for  the spectacular  success  of  Hrithik Roshan on  Super 30  it’s been a really tough  year  for  the  Roshans, what with the  patriarch Rakesh Roshan detected with  a life-threatening  ailment, and  daughter Sunaina on  a warpath against her  family.
