Mumbai: You have seen B-Town hunk Salman Khan bashing up goons to pulp, but this time around, it’s our very own Bollywood superstar, who is battling ill health.
Apparently, the actor is down and out due to the brute pain in his jaw for the past three months, which his giving him nightmares.
It is believed that the ‘Dabangg’ star will fly out to the USA on 27th August, for a second opinion and further treatment.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Salman had this problem about seven years back. He used to get spasms in his face. But the pain would go away. In fact, it vanished completely after a year or two. It suddenly came back about three months back. This time, it`s more painful. He couldn`t have neglected it further.”
Explaining about Salman’s deteriorating health, the source revealed, “Salman is in extreme pain. Every time he eats something extremely hot or cold, the pain intensifies. His jaw region hurts a lot.”
Last week, Salman was rushed to Lilavati hospital in Bandra. “His pain was too acute. Salman, who is normally a very tough guy, was almost screaming. The doctors at Lilavati suggested that he visits Saifee hospital in Charni Road. At Saifee, he was advised to undergo angiography,” said the source.
Salman is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, something his brother Sohail confirmed and said, “Trigeminal neuralgia bahut bada shabd hai. I don`t know what you`re saying. It`s my brother`s health. All I can say is that yes, he is going to the US on August 27 for a second opinion, diagnosis and treatment for his nerve problem.”
With ‘Bodyguard’ releasing this Eid, it will be the first time when Salman will be unavailable for the release of his film as well as Eid and Ganapati celebrations at his home.
“Salman completed the planned promotions for ‘Bodyguard’ yesterday. He did as much as he could. Health is his first priority right now,” added the source.
We pray for the quick recovery of Salman Khan!
