Vancouver: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is nursing a shoulder injury that he suffered on the sets of his upcoming film 'Chennai Express' but that will not deter him to perform at the debut Times of India Film Awards
Shah Rukh's performance is one of the most anticipated segments and the 47-year-old actor is planning to entertain his numerous fans despite the injury.
"I have been shooting for 14 days non-stop and on top of it I hurt myself. My shoulder is hurting a bit," SRK told PTI in an interview.
When asked whether it was the old injury, he said, "It is a new injury. The old one is fine but for this one I may have to go for a surgery later. I have to perform so it is a bit of a drag but I will try to avoid the right hand movement during the dance as much as I can."
It has been a hectic few weeks for the actor as he has been juggling different things back home including the opening ceremony of IPL, where he performed with actress Deepika Padukone and international rapper Pitbull.
"I did the IPL ceremony and then there was the match. I flew in after dropping the kids because wife (Gauri) had left already for TOIFA. Yes, it has been hectic but that is how I live. I might also miss my team's next match," he added.
Shah Rukh is teaming up with director Rohit Shetty for the first time in 'Chennai Express', a romantic comedy, which has been produced by the actor's production house Red Chillies Entertainment.
The film also stars Padukone and the actor says there is still some work left on it, which he plans to finish after the awards.
"We have some fifteen days left and when I get back I will complete it. Just some songs and six seven scenes are left," he said.
