Hrithik will reportedly fly to the United States for further treatment of a blood clot on his brain surface which was surgically removed in Mumbai on July 7. The actor is believed to have had a relapse since then.
Dr V K Mishra, who attended to Hrithik at the Mumbai surgery, had confirmed at the time that the operation had been successful. "The operation (brain surgery) has been successful. He is fully conscious," he had said.
Dr Mishra had also revealed that the actor had injured himself while performing a stunt scene a couple of months ago.
The blood clot was discovered after Hrithik, who had been complaining of persistent nagging headaches, decided to get an MRI done.
After consultations with doctors, an Indian and a neurosurgeon from abroad had operated on him at Mumbai's Hinduja Hospital. A hole was drilled in his skull and the blood sucked out under local anesthesia.
Hrithik's US visit will mean a delay in the shooting of his next films Bang Bang and Shuddhi.
