Reportedly, the surgery took place around 2:00 pm and went on for about 45 to 50 minutes. The surgery was successful, he is out of danger and should be discharged in the next 48 hours, suggest reports. Wife Sussane Roshan and his parents were present throughout the surgery.
Before the surgery, Hrithik's father, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan had said, "It's a clot between brain and skull. So, basically it's a clot in brain. He will undergo the surgery around 2:00 pm or 2:30 pm. In the medical term, it's called chronic subdural hematoma. Me and my entire family is with him."
Hrithik, the star of films like 'Krrish' and 'Agneepath', informed everyone about the surgery through his post on Facebook.
The 39-year-old's post reads, "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."
"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."
