Chennai: Tamil actor Ajith Kumar, who was injured during the climax sequence of forthcoming Tamil film "Vedalam", will be undergoing surgery on his knee and shoulder at a private hospital here on November 24.
"This is the second time he will undergo surgery for his knee and shoulder. In 2013, he injured himself while shooting for Tamil film 'Aarrambam'. Since he has been injured in the same area this time, surgery is inevitable," a source close to the star told IANS.
Ajith currently walks on crutches.
The 44-year old actor has been advised nine weeks of total rest post the surgery.
His latest outing "Vedalam", which also stars Shruti Haasan and directed by Siva, releases worldwide on November 10.
