After much delay and prolonged pain, it has finally been decided that Shah Rukh Khan will go under the knife for his shoulder pain in London in June.

The surgery that had been postponed for the completion of his shoot for Chennai Express will be his eighth, reported Bollywood Life, adding that his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders needed him as well, another reason for the delay.

Apparently, the accident-prone Khan has also suffered injuries like three broken ribs, a twisted ankle, a broken right toe, an injury to his left shoulder, a neck injury, a broken back bone and an injured left knee.

Shah Rukh Khan shoulders the burden
Shah Rukh Khan will be soon going under the knife. The super busy actor had been suffering from shoulder pain since the time he was working on his superhero flick, RA.One (2010). Although he’d undergone treatment for it then, the persistent ache will now require surgery to be cured.

But the actor has decided to get the operation only after he wraps up the shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express. Also, since he’s been keeping busy attending the matches played by his T20 team, he wants to schedule the surgery for later, at a more-convenient time.

“Rohit Shetty plans to finish the film by May-end because the makers have declared it an Eid release (on August 8). A couple of schedules are remaining, which will be wrapped up in the next one-and-a-half months,” a source close to the actor told HT Cafe.

He added, “Although Shah Rukh is in constant pain, he is continuing with work as usual because he doesn’t want to upset the schedules.” Shah Rukh remained unavailable for a comment. However, his spokesperson confirmed the news. “He is not going for the surgery anytime soon. He will go only after he finishes the shoot of the film.”


Shah Rukh Khan had to undergo a surgery in 2009 as well to rectify the tear on his left shoulder. Sources close to the actor had said that the shoulder injury had worsened during the shooting of Karan Johar's My Name is Khan in Los Angeles. The superstar who had undergone a major shoulder surgery a couple of years ago, had hurt himself while shooting for an action scene in Dulha Mil Gaya the year before that.

Interestingly, back then in 2009 too, SRK had postponed the surgery because he did not want to delay Johar's shooting; this despite being advised surgery before he left. And even after that he had wanted to push back the surgery till his production Billu was released but doctors apparently advised him go for it immediately.
