Hrithik first patient in Ambani's New Hospital



Hrithik Roshan’s accident on the sets of Kites made news but the bigger news is how the actor skipped going to the ‘celebrity’ hospital in Bandra to avoid registering a police complaint. The actor has cuts on his wrist normally associated with attempted suicide cases. The Roshans wanted to avoid unnecessary paperwork.

So papa Roshan called Tina Ambani, and requested her to admit his son to the family-owned and recently-opened Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital at Four Bungalows, Andheri. Ambani made the necessary arrangements for Hrithik’s medical care at the hospital.

A source close to Hrithik’s family says, “Duggu (Hrithik’s pet name) was the first patient at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He hurt himself on the sets of Anurag Basu’s Kites at Filmistan Studios on Wednesday night.

He was shooting for an action scene in which he had to smash a windowpane with a rod and enter the room. The shot didn’t work well two times; the third time Hrithik hit the glass so hard that glass shards flew everywhere. One sliced through his wrist and blood gushed everywhere. The cut was so deep that Hrithik could see his bone.”

Though Papa Roshan wasn’t present on the sets executive producer and Hrithik’s sister Sunaina was. She took charge. “Initially, Sunaina didn’t realise how serious Hrithik’s wound was but when he cried out to her asking for help and to stop the blood gushing out, she realised he needed to be taken to a hospital for stitches.”

The source adds that Sunaina decided to take him to Lilavati Hospital in Bandra but they were advised that it might become a police case. She spoke to her dad, who in turn called Tina Ambani in Delhi who made the necessary arrangements for Hrithik’s admission.” Roshan Sr confirms, “The deep cut required 12 stitches. He won’t be shooting for the next three days till the doctor sees his wound.”

Roshan Sr also adds, “We took Hrithik to the Ambani Hospital as it was close to Filmistan Studios in Goregaon. I wanted him to reach the hospital as soon as possible. I spoke to Tina. She spoke to the doctors and made all the required arrangements. Fortunately they had opened the hospital just a day before and Hrithik was their first patient. It’s a fantastic hospital like a 7-star hotel very well thought out with 700 beds. The doctors are very efficient.”

With regard to the police case he says, “The police came for a routine enquiry and I showed them Hrithik’s report it was an accident on the sets. They were fine with that.
