The 39-year-old actor is suffering from Subdural Hematoma which is caused by bleeding of veins in the brain due to a blow to the head. He is presently admitted in the Hinduja Hospital.
“The operation has been successful. He is fully conscious,” Dr V.K. Mishra of the hospital told media after the surgery. “During one of the stunt scenes, two months ago, he (Hrithik) injured himself and did not take it seriously,” the doctor added.
“He is undergoing brain surgery today as he is suffering from Subdural Hematoma. It is a small surgery and will happen at 2 pm at Hinduja (Khar) hospital. The operation will take half an hour but there is nothing serious,” Rakesh said.
The actor also revealed about his surgery to his fans through his official Facebook page.
“I am going to go through brain surgery today and want you to know that 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. Love you all,” Hrithik posted.
“We all know that we create a life of joy using the power of our mind. I’ve had the privilege of creating wonders with this amazing gift given to us called the brain. Occasionally one must look within and realize its value. It gives us the power to see, hear, touch, smell and taste, it allows us to conquer fear and create courage to do things we never imagined. Maybe it’s time for me to feel the power literally,” he added.
