Bollywood star SHAH RUKH KHAN is undergoing surgery to treat a shoulder injury he sustained while filming in December (08).
The 43-year-old Indian actor was admitted to a Mumbai hospital on Monday (16Feb09) after picking up the injury on the set of Dulha Mil Gaya (I Found My Groom).
Khan is expected to be discharged by Sunday (22Feb09) - but he has been warned by doctors to rest his shoulder for several weeks to allow it to fully recover.
A spokeswoman for the Breach Candy hospital confirms, "Shah Rukh is set to undergo surgery later today."
