Hrithik Roshan discharged from hospital post brain surgery
When he came out of the hospital, Hrithik was accompanied by his father and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan.
A source close to the actor revealed: “He is fine now but he will be taking rest at least for a month now. Doctors have asked him to take rest and complete the medication.”Rakesh Roshan told reporters: “He was shooting for Bang Bang in Phuket, Bangkok. He was doing a stunt where he had to put a jet on his feet and go 30 feet high in the sky and then dive down in the water.”
“So when he rehearsed, he fell the wrong way and banged his head a bit, which he didn’t realise. That started his pain and he started taking pain killers, thinking it will get fine in three to four days because something similar had happened during Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai also.”
The pain subsided, but only to return a month later.
“Hrithik finished shooting in the next eight days and he came to Mumbai. The headache was still there, so we had a CT scan done but nothing showed in it. Then he was on medication. So the pain decreased, but it started increasing gradually in the past four weeks,” said the senior Roshan who has just finished shooting Krrish 3 with his star son.
It was on the night of July 5, a day before he was scheduled to fly to Prague, the Czech Republic, for the next schedule of Bang Bang, that Hrithik complained of severe pain.
“Friday night (July 5) he told my wife (Pinki) that ‘I am not comfortable and something is wrong inside’. So we took another CT scan and MRI. On Saturday morning (July 7) we got them done and then we were told there is a blood clot,” said Rakesh Roshan.
Hrithik was diagnosed with chronic subdural haematoma and was admitted to the Hinduja Hospital July 7 evening, and next day he was operated upon.
“I am fantastic,” Hrithik said while posing for the shutterbugs after being discharged from the Hinduja hospital this afternoon.
The 39-year-old underwent a successful brain surgery Sunday afternoon.
After the surgery, Rakesh Roshan said that while shooting a stunt for Bang Bang in Phuket, Bangkok, Hrithik had a head injury and landed in the hospital.
While he was in the hospital, the members of film fraternity Shah Rukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ashutosh Gowariker, Gauri Khan, Karan Johar among others visited him.
