Shah Rukh Khan has been suffering from knee problems for quite some time now. During the grand trailer launch of his keenly-awaited film, Raees, he revealed that he didn’t go for a major surgery for his knee earlier this year as it would have required him to rest for a long time, which would have delayed the shoot of his upcoming films. 

He also went on to reveal that whenever his doctor asks him to rest for six months, he is back on sets in six days. It seems that the lack of concern has affected the actor in a big way now. There are reports that Khan's knee woes have resurfaced. He experienced severe pain in his affected knee while shooting at Mumbai’s Madh Island. 

Dr Desai, who is looking after him, doesn’t have good news to share for Khan’s fans. He told a publication, “We had treated him with painkillers and injections five months ago but following repeated injuries, the pain had worsened. The chondral fissure of the patella in Mr Khan's knee has completely worn out and repairing it is difficult and will take a lot of time.” 

Reports also suggest that the superstar seldom wears his knee cap despite being advised to. He is also advised not to perform any action sequence. Added the doctor, “Since he will continue to shoot, we will perform another arthroscopic surgery on him to clean up the damaged part after 10 months. I've advised him rest.”
