When Salman Khan sported sunshades at three recent events in Mumbai — an episode of Bigg Boss 4, the launch of Being Human watches and the Being Human fashion show at HDIL India Couture Week — rumours of him having undergone eye surgery to hide eye bags started doing the rounds. However, Khan was quick to deny any such treatment.

“I was okay to walk the ramp without the glares, but everyone who saw my eye got scared. So I thought it's best to wear the ‘chashmas’ (glares),” Salman tweeted.

The reason behind the apparent ‘scare’: “It was just a small scratch near the eye. But because of all my commitments, the blood clot spread to the whole eye,” he says, adding, “Of course, it hurts, and vision is slightly blurred, but it will be fine in a few days.”

The actor has been advised to take rest, and was forced to miss the Dabangg DVD launch. The film’s producer and Salman’s brother, Arbaaz, said at the event, “The doctor has advised Salman to take rest for at least a week or the clot may spread further or get infected. As of now, he is following the doctor’s advice and as much as he would have liked to be here, he couldn’t make it.”
