Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan is heading to an undisclosed location abroad for his medical treatment Saturday night. Contrary to reports that he will be accompanied by his parents, a source says one of his friends will travel with the actor.

The ‘Krrish’ star has been suffering bouts of headache. In July this year, Hrithik had undergone a brain surgery for removal of a clot at the Hinduja Hospital.

Confirming Hrithik`s travel plans, his father Rakesh Roshan said: "Hrithik is leaving on Saturday. He will be going with a friend."

When asked if Hrithik would be accompanied by his parents, Rakesh Roshan said, "We`ll join him if there is a need for us to do so."

In the meanwhile, Hrithik`s next project ‘Shuddhi’ has been postponed to July 2014.

A source close to the project said: "`Shuddhi` is a story of reincarnation. Films about rebirth are always tricky to pull off. The script of `Shuddhi` needs more work. Hrithik`s health is not the issue here, the script needs to be polished."

Being produced by Karan Johar and being directed by Karan Malhotra, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor.
