Shah Rukh discharged from hospital after shoulder surgeryFebruary 17th, 2009 - 7:59 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Feb 17 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who underwent a successful shoulder surgery at the Breach Candy hospital here Monday evening, has been discharged, said a hospital source.
“Shah Rukh has been discharged from the hospital. He left at around 5 p.m.,” a source at the south Mumbai hospital told IANS Tuesday evening.
The actor had to undergo an arthroscopic surgery for acute pain in his left shoulder. Though he had planned to fly to London for the surgery, he chose to get it done in Mumbai under the guidance of Sanjay Desai, the orthopaedic surgeon at Breach Candy.
For now, Shah Rukh has been advised by doctors to refrain from indulging in any heavy-duty action scenes.
“It’s a normal precaution that one has to take. The surgery was long pending and it is good that he finally took out time for it. Keeping in mind that he would only become busier in months to come, it made sense that he got himself operated before it was too late,” Desai had told IANS.
The 43-year-old superstar will be on a forced break for six weeks to recuperate completely. However, he will host the Filmfare Awards on March 7, which were scheduled for Feb 28 earlier. The organisers postponed the date for Shah Rukh’s sake.
