Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has been busy with the shooting of his super hero film ‘Ra. One’ and action thriller ‘Don: The Chase Continues’, hurt his leg after it got stuck in a puddle recently.

The actor who attended the music launch of his forthcoming home production ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’ here Wednesday looked chic in a black shirt and formal trousers, and he even walked straight. But a slight discomfort on his face couldn`t be missed.

Asked about his condition, Shah Rukh told reporters: "I have hurt my leg. I wish I could say it happened during the shoot of `Ra.One` or `Don`. But it happened when my leg got stuck into a puddle recently. I turned my leg to take out my foot and the meniscus (cartilage) got ruptured."

Since Shah Rukh was a sports enthusiast since his school days, injuries have been a part of his life. While working in films, he first suffered a hairline fracture on his knee cap that he sustained while shooting for ‘Koyla’ in 1990s. In the past five years, he tore a shoulder muscle, suffered a back injury and has undergone surgery too.

He is also busy with his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders.
