Salman Khan was in the US for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (a nerve disorder).
According to a popular tabloid, “The doctors, who Salman went to for consultation, advised the actor to immediately undergo surgery. The operation involves using a coil to remove some blockages inside his mouth. The procedure is similar to a heart surgery. The operation usually lasts for close to five hours.”
A source adds, “Salman had this problem about seven years ago. He used to get spasms in his face. But the pain would go away. In fact, it vanished completely after a year or two. Then about three months ago, the pain resurfaced. This time, it’s more painful. He couldn’t have neglected it further.”
Immediately after the treatment, Salman will head to London, for Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger.
