The actor advised two weeks of bed rest; Karan Johar’s Agneepath shoot on hold


Playing Vijay Dinanath Chauhan has taken a toll on Hrithik Roshan's health. The actor, working non-stop for Karan Johar's dream remake has now hurt his back.


He has been advised complete bed rest for about fifteen days, which in turn has put the project, Agneepath on hold. The shoot of the film directed by Karan Malhotra has been cancelled until Hrithik gets back on his feet.


Hrithik was spotted at Breach Candy Hospital undergoing MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). A source informed, "The actor entered the hospital, visibly in a lot of pain. The doctors attended to him almost immediately."


However, senior radiologist Dr Anirudh Kohli from Breach Candy Hospital refused to divulge the details of the various tests conducted on Roshan Jr. "I cannot share any information about my patients since there is a privacy issue," said Kohli. Another official from the hospital (name withheld on request) said, "We have been strictly told not to talk about Hrithik to anybody."


While the hospital officials refused to part with information on the actor's health, a source revealed, "Hrithik was supposed to lift a burly fighter, who weighs nearly 110 kg during the Agneepath shoot.


This is a very important scene in the film. Perhaps he got a little carried away and decided to do it himself (without using a body double). Kar to diya lekin uske immediately baad uske back mein bahut dard hone laga."


"He was in a lot of pain and needed medical help. Lifting 110 kilos of a man obviosuly put a lot of pressure on Hrithik's back," added the source.


When contacted, Hrithik's father, Rakesh Roshan, said, "Fighter ke scene ka koi problem nahin hua. Hrithik has been working almost continuously on his TV show Just Dance and Karan Johar's film Agneepath. He is back home, he just needs a little rest since he is overworked."


Hrithik Roshan remained unavailable for comment. Karan Johar too did not reply to our text message.


According to sources, a song and a few important scenes of Agneepath still remain to be shot. We hope, the lead actor is up and about soon enough.
