Mumbai: Indefatigable Shah Rukh Khan may look smooth and charming in his films but the fact is he is going through a lot of pain. The actor is paying a high price for success as injuries sustained during the shoot of his blockbuster films are giving him sleepless nights. The actor has undergone surgeries and several treatments for his injuries but he is far from being absolutely fit.
A source said to a news daily, “His first injury was the hairline fracture on his knee cap that he sustained while shooting for ‘Koyla’ in 1995-96. After that Shah Rukh tore a shoulder muscle while shooting for ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’ for which his shoulder was strapped for more a month. Then it was his back injury, a slip disc, that he sustained while shooting ‘Main Hoon Na’ in 2004 for which he had to undergo a minor surgery.”
"He won’t go into quick-fix solutions anymore and he will be undergoing one more treatment programme in the US,” the source said.
However, his trainer Prashant Samant has immense faith in SRK. “I don’t think there’s anything that can stop Shah Rukh. When he wants to do something, he goes ahead and does it. I do have to take extreme care about the fact that he has a few injuries.”
Talking about Shah Rukh’s fitness regime, Samant said, “When you are injured, you can’t lift weights. That might rule out a lot of exercises but it is still possible to maintain a six-pack.”
