Bollywood star Salman Khan has said that he would undertake a long-delayed trip abroad for treatment of a painful condition, which he had put off because of his acting schedule and the blackbuck poaching case in court.
‘I had to delay going due to the acting schedules and the court cases. But now I will go,’ he said at a Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) match in Kochi Saturday night.
The 47-year-old is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia and aneurysm. In this condition, the patient suffers acute pain in his head, cheeks and jaws.
He had revealed to the media that he had the first attack of pain in the left side of his face during the making of his 2007 film Partner and that the pain came back while he was shooting for Veer (2010).
Salman underwent a surgery in Pittsburgh, US, in 2011, to treat the painful condition.
Salman, who was guest of honour at the opening ceremony of CCL, is happy that actors are doing well on the cricket field and says he may hit the ground next year.
‘I may play next year. The disadvantage with actors is that we are very busy. We have very long hours of work. In spite of all this, they are playing well. This is because cricket is their first love,’ Salman told reporters Saturday.
The 47-year-old said he plans to travel with the team to different venues and is happy that people are getting hooked on to CCL.
‘It is a good thing that people are getting hooked on to this. It is great that actors are playing good cricket. It is a good combination of acting and cricket,’ said the actor.
