Hrithik has successful brain surgery, to be discharged soon

Mumbai, July 7 (IANS) Hrithik Roshan, one of the reigning stars of the Hindi film industry, underwent a brain surgery for removal of a clot at the Hinduja Hospital here Sunday. The surgery was successful and he should be out of the hospital in the next 48 hours, said his father and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan.

The 39-year-old was wheeled out of the operation theatre around 3 p.m. His parents and wife Sussanne were present throughout the 50-minute neuro-surgery to correct the chronic subdural hematoma condition.

Rakesh Roshan said: "The surgery is over and Hrithik is fine. He should be out of the hospital in the next 48 hours."

Hrithik is out of danger and on way to complete recovery, he added.

Before the surgery, Rakesh Roshan told IANS that there was "a clot in the brain", and that in medical terms it's called "chronic subdural hematoma".

A father of two sons, Hrithik too had informed about the surgery through his Facebook post.

The star hero embarked on his acting journey with super hit love story "Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai" in 2000 and in the last 13 years, he has worked in about 30 films including hits like "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Koi... Mil Gaya", "Krrish", "Dhoom:2", "Jodhaa Akbar", "Agneepath" and "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara".

Currently, he is gearing up for the release of "Krrish 3", third film in the sci-fi superhero series after "Koi... Mil Gaya" and "Krrish", which were directed and produced by his father under their banner FilmKraft.

For the third instalment also Rakesh Roshan went behind the camera.

Last month Hrithik unveiled the first look of "Krrish 3" on Facebook and it is set for a Nov 4 release, a day after Diwali this year.

Apart from that, Hrithik is also associated with Dharma Productions "Shuddhi", scheduled to go on floors end-2013, and Fox Star Studios' "Bang Bang".

"Fox Star Studios joins millions of superstar Hrithik Roshan's fans and well-wishers across the world in wishing him a speedy recovery. Hrithik's health and well-being is the top priority at this moment. As a consequence, the shoot of the upcoming third schedule of Siddharth Anand's 'Bang Bang' has been moved forward. We shall update the dates of the new schedule at an opportune time," said a statement from the banner.

This is not the first time, Hrithik had a surgery. A couple of years ago, he went in for a knee surgery in the US.
