Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan will reportedly undergo his eight surgery after wrapping up the shooting of Rohit Shetty's "Chennai Express".

According to reports, Shah Rukh sustained a shoulder injury during the shoot and had been postponing his surgery due to his hectic schedules and the ongoing season of Indian Premier League.

Recent reports state that Shah Rukh, who is in the final schedules of the shooting, will reportedly fly to London in June to consult doctors and finalise a surgeon who would operate his injured shoulder.

Post the surgery the actor will be seen promoting the romantic comedy "Chennai Express" which also stars Deepika Padukone. It is reported that he will also begin shooting for Farah Khan's next venture titled "Happy New Year" once he recovers from the surgery. It was rumoured that SRK would be paired opposite Aishawarya Rai, but later it was said that Farah is yet to find the perfect face to play the female lead of the movie. 

During the maiden Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA) held in Vancouver in April, Shah Rukh, who gave out a sizzling performnce at the event, revealed that he might have to undergo a surgery due the injury.

"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."

Earlier the actor suffered an injury while shooting for "Dulha Mil Gaya" in 2009.

According to Bollywood Life, Shah Rukh's past injuries included three broken ribs, a twisted ankle, a broken right toe, an injury to his left shoulder, a neck injury, a broken back bone and an injured left knee.

His much-awaited movie of 2013 "Chennai Express" is set to take on Akshay Kumar's "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2" on 8 August.
