Bollywood actor Salman Khan was admitted to a hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, where he underwent surgery for his nerve condition, reports Mumbai Mirror.


Salman Khan is being treated for  trigeminal neuralgia (a nerve disorder). He was wheeled into the operation theatre of a hospital in Los Angeles, on Tuesday night around midnight (IST) to undergo surgery.

The report quotes a source:  “The doctors, who Salman went to for consultation, advised the actor to immediately undergo surgery. The operation involves using a coil to remove some blockages inside his mouth. The procedure is similar to a heart surgery. The operation usually lasts for close to five hours.”

The star had been suffering from acute pain in his jaw area for the past three months. A week ago, reports of Khan's ill health had surfaced in the media. However, his family denied the media reports and asserted that the star was fit.

A source revealed, “Salman had this problem about seven years ago. He used to get spasms in his face. But the pain would go away. In fact, it vanished completely after a year or two. Then about three months ago, the pain resurfaced. This time, it's more painful. He couldn't have neglected it further.”

The source said Salman was in extreme pain. Every time he ate something extremely hot or cold, the pain intensified. This is the first time that the actor had to miss the release of his film.

However, the Kareena-Salman starrer Bodyguard, which hit theatres this Eid, has earned an estimated Rs 18 crore on it's first day. Reportedly, this breaks the record of the Rs 14 crore opening that Dabangg received.

After his treatment, Salman is scheduled to shoot for Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger in London, in September.
