Actor Hrithik Roshan underwent brain surgery to treat a blood clot at Hinduja Hospital in Khar on Sunday. The minor surgery went off well and Hrithik is expected to be discharged from the hospital in a day or two.
Prior to the surgery,the 39-year-old actor posted on his Facebook page: Minor brain surgery to remove blood clot (chronic subdural haematoma). Should be rock n rolling by evening! Subdural haematoma is a traumatic brain injury in which blood accumulates in the outermost meningeal layer.
The actors father Rakesh Roshan said the surgery was to treat the clot which Hrithik possibly got due to an injury while shooting for a film. He possibly got it due to a minor injury he had on his head two months ago in Phuket while shooting for Bang Bang. The surgery has been successful, his father said. In a statement,Fox Star studios said the shooting for their movie Bang Bang had been postponed. Hrithiks health and well-being is the top priority at this moment, the statement said.
In his Facebook post,Hrithik thanked his fans for support. An excerpt from the post read, I am going in with absolute power to recover fast. My thanks to all of you for using the power of your mind to contribute to my life.
After the surgery was completed,Sussanne said,Thank you for all your love and concern,Hrithik has come out of the surgery stronger than ever before. Gratitude and love to all of you for your good wishes and prayers for him.
