Hrithik, who was diagonised with chronic subdural haematoma and was admitted Saturday evening at the Hinduja Hospital in Khar, was operated upon in the afternoon and came out of the operation theatre around 3 p.m. The 50-minute neuro-surgery has been successful and Sussanne said she was relieved.
“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 all your good wishes and prayers for him,” Sussanne said in a statement.
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.
“Minor brain surgery to remove blood clot. Should be rock n rolling by evening! U guys have a great day too! Supersonic!!” tweeted Hrithik.
