Bollywood actor, Shahrukh Khan who recently injured himself on the sets of Happy New Year, is now suffering a head injury, a fractured shoulder and a torn knee patella tissue. The actor, despite the sever injury, is still shooting for the film. But you know what? This is not his first time. Right from the beginning, Shahrukh has hurt himself real bad and the actor says, these injuries have only pushed him to work harder. We hear, every time SRK was physically hurt, he made sure to return to shoot within a weeks time. While this might be a good thing for the filmmakers, it is doing no good to the actors health.
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”
