Salman Khan

Salman Khan has been suffering with a facial nerve disorder. However, not much has been talked about by him until now. He revealed a bit about the pain he was in during the Radio song launch in Dubai.

“I was suffering from this nerve problem called trigeminal neuralgia. So I couldn’t talk. Had to talk like that (speaking with his mouth slightly closed) and huge amount of pain,” said the actor, according to Hindustan Times.

Khan also talked about what the disease can make people feel, “That’s one disease that basically has the highest rates of suicides. Over education, over everything. There is so much of pain…I suffered that”.

He added that his focus still remained on his fans, “So at that point of time, I realised that I need to work really hard. No matter how much pain you are going through, it made me realise that you can’t put any subtitles — your ligament is torn, you have the flu or that your knee is hurting — in any of your scenes. Your fans don’t care about it and that you really need to give your best on screen. Once it’s printed, it’s lifelong”.

Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ releases on 23rd June, directed by Kabir Khan.
