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,” says a source close to the actor.

He adds, “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.”
