Shah Rukh Khan recently suffered a major blow while shooting for ‘Happy New Year’ which led to a head injury, a fractured shoulder getting and a torn knee patella tissue. It’s not the first time that the actor has been injured during a shoot. Known to perform daredevil stunts himself, injuries haven’t stopped him, they have only pushed him to work harder. A source close to the actor tells Mirror that everytime he has injured himself, he has returned to the sets in a week or at best, in 10 days. And this has often resulted in having to undergo more surgeries later.
Physiotherapist Dr Aijaz Ashai says, “I’m sure Shah Rukh is exercising regularly. He needs to work on building muscle around joints and increase the endurance of muscle fibre. He also needs to rest for a while so an injury can heal. He has a flexible body and many people guiding him.
