Shah Rukh Khan has struggled a lot to be the most successful actor that he is now. He is a man of struggle, success, charm, passion, sadness and full of life. Here we share the timeline of Shahrukh Khan’s injury right from his initial days in Bollywood:
The first major injury happened when Shah Rukh Khan was shooting along with Anupam Kher for Yash Chopra’s ‘Darr’ in the early 1990s at Mumbai’s Film City. In this particular scene Shah Rukh Khan was expected to jump on Anupam Kher who was relaxing on a sofa. However, the moment Shah Rukh jumped on the sofa, Mr. Kher lifted his leg accidentally. This mistake fractured his three ribs, hurting his chest very badly.
While shooting a running sequence in Rakesh Roshan’s ‘Koyla’, Shah Rukh Khan hurt his left knee. If you watch the film closely, you will see Shah Rukh running with a duppatta tied around his knee. While you may have thought it was for the film, SRK had actually used co-star Madhuri Dixit’s dupatta to ease the pain.
3.English Babu Desi Mem(1996):
It all began in 1996 when he fractured three ribs while shooting for ‘English Babu Desi Mem’, in which he played his first dual role. He resumed shooting soon after!
4. Dil Se… (1998):
He ended up injuring his right toe while shooting for ‘Dil Se…’ in 1998.
While shooting for the item song Ishq Kamina in Boney Kapoor’s Film ‘Shakti’, Shah Rukh suffered back injury. This happened in the year 2001. However, the actor got treated after two years in April 2003. He was operated in a UK Hospital.
6. Dulha Mil Gaya(2007):
In the year 2007, SRK injured his left shoulder while shooting for an action scene for his film ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’. Unfortunately, his supraspinatus was damaged. This was the very first time that SRK damaged his left shoulder.
7. My Name Is Khan(2008):
A year later in 2008, Shah Rukh Khan injured the same shoulder once again while shooting for ‘My Name Is Khan’. Being a professional, he didn’t treat the injury immediately but waited for the shooting to get over.
The left knee which SRK injured while shooting for Koyla worsened when the actor was shooting for his in house production film ‘Ra-One’. This happened mainly because Shah Rukh Khan had opted for physiotherapy instead of surgery. However, post Ra-One, he went for the minimal invasive surgery to ease his pain.
9. Chennai Express(2013):
In the year 2013, Shah Rukh Khan underwent a shoulder surgery after he was hurt badly while shooting for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Chennai Express’. Though he treated his injury in London, he got it operated in a Mumbai hospital.
10. Happy New Year( 2014):
Last year while shooting for a dance sequence in Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’, a door crashed on Shahrukh Khan and he sustained minor injuries. He was bleeding post the accident. However, he was immediately rushed to the Nanavati hospital where he got all the necessary medical help.
Shahrukh Khan had injured his knee while shooting for ‘FAN’ earlier this year. Shahrukh has had no time to rest with back-to-back shoots for ‘Raees’.
Here’s the history of Shahrukh Khan getting injured at various times while shooting for some of the super hits he gave us! He even tweeted at times about his injury!
