Sunaina Roshan

Sunaina Roshan was born on January 22, 1972. Even in her growing-up years, she resonated her father’s personality with her love for the outdoors, and her penchant for mischief, despite her belief that ‘If Mother was the teacher, Father was the principal.’ After finishing school at St. Teresa’s Convent in Mumbai, Sunaina spent a year in Institut Villa Pierrefeu in Switzerland. In June 2001, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis meningitis. She conquered the medical condition silently. But all was not over yet. In October 2007, shortly after she started working with Filmkraft, her father’s production house, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. It was detected at an early stage but the road ahead was tortuous. The co-producer of Kites, Krazzy 4 and Krrish 3 rose to the challenge once again, promised her parents that she would bounce right back, and she did. Little wonder then that younger brother, Hrithik Roshan, avers that Sunaina is the real ‘Superhero’ in the family.In Savvy’s I Believe: Collector’s Edition, Sunaina’s cover feature was amongst the Top 11 inspirational stories published between 1984 and 2013.
