Last week, the industry and movie buffs were taken aback as news came in that Hrithik Roshan has been admitted for a minor brain surgery following a head injury on sets of 'Bang Bang'. It was a reported that the actor underwent the surgery owing to blood clot in brain. But now, the B-town heartthrob is back home; quoted to be feeling "fantastic".
While he is quite ready and excited to return to work immediately, Hrithik has been advised 4 weeks of rest before he gets back to action. Bringing assurance to his huge fan base who was quite concerned about his well-being, the cheerful star in a statement to IndiaGlitz opens up about the whole experience and how he coped with it and promises that he will be very careful in future"
"First of all, all fear is 99% assumption based, in fact almost ALL worries in life would disappear if we just stop assuming things. I just don't allow my mind to assume a different truth behind the obvious. Like in relationships...I really love asking people which school they went to learn, how to mind read others! They claim to know not only what's actually behind what others say, but even the tone behind the words of a SMS! Anyways, So now if I'm not allowed to mind read others, I'm also not allowed to mind read myself! I did not allow myself to assume something will go wrong. There was no evidence to support that assumption. Once the doctors said local anesthesia is safer except for the pain, I quickly made my peace with the pain, took the better option and looked forward to a mind blowing (literally) experience! Haha.
How could I have any fear then? I was with the best doctors and was armed with objective information. I was making them sing songs while a hole was being drilled into my skull. Why worry until something DOES go wrong!" The star had been busy with promotion and post-production of 'Krrish 3' and shooting of 'Bang Bang', when the accident happened while performing a stunt.
Talking about joining work soon, Hrithik went on, "Yes I can't afford to take a sick leave. This of course throws a lot of lives, lives of people very dear to me, completely out of whack. But I cannot worry, that solves nothing. I have to focus on what can be! All I have to do is take a decision...I decide that I have the power to turn a curse into a boon, as I have done in the past.
I will make up for this in the most wonderful way imaginable for all the people concerned." On a promising note, the actor stated, "I will of course be my most careful.(Laughs) Do not worry. That I promise. But I will always be a slave (again a very careful one) to my vision.
If I can dream it, I will make it happen. (In the most careful way again) is everyone happy? (Laughs)" Incidentally, veteran actor Dharmendra, who was in US during Hrithik's surgery, had even called him later to check on his health and apparently was also the first person to call him. (After the surgery Hrithik was not allowed to attend any calls.) A huge fan of Dharam sir, Hrithik was on cloud nine when he received a call from the legendary superstar.
Besides, several B-town celebrities including Shah Rukh Khan had visited Hrithik in Hospital.
