In 2013, Hrithik Roshan had undergone a brain surgery to remove a clot that had formed due to a head injury that he had sustained during a shoot. This had let to multiple instances of the shooting of Bang Bang (2014) getting postponed, and as a result, the release was also delayed.

Ever since, the actor has been playing it safe, and ensuring that he doesn’t hurt himself again. In the latest instance, he apparently refused to perform a stunt for his period film, Mohenjodaro, that is being shot in Bhuj, Gujarat.

A source close to Hrithik says, "A few days back, he was supposed to film a scene that required him to jump from one point to another, a few feet away. When he saw the distance, he told Ashutosh (Gowariker; director) that he would prefer not to do the scene. He felt the stunt could lead to him falling and may cause an injury. The director understood Hrithik’s predicament, so he had the scene changed."

We tried contacting Ashutosh, but he was unavailable for a comment.
