"Doctors confirmed that I experienced allergic reaction to an antibiotic. My lungs just closed. Throat went into spasm, could not breathe," said the 36-year-old actor in a statement released by his spokesperson.
"Lips became 10 times their size. I was rushed to the hospital on time. I am under observation and will be discharged late night. But all good. It`s always good.
"Was celebrating `Guzaarish` at home, now celebrating from here (hospital). No difference," Hrithik added.
It was earlier reported that Hrithik refrained from attending his Kolkata promotions, scheduled for earlier this week, for "Guzaarish" because he was suspecting suffering from malaria. However that was not confirmed.
