Shah Rukh Khan, who underwent a surgery to repair the tear in the main muscle of his left shoulder, is recovering well, doctors attending on him here said on Tuesday.

Shoulder specialist Dr Sanjay Desai, who led the team of doctors to operate on the 43-year-old actor-producer, said
Khan had recovered well and had a normal diet.

"I will be visiting him later in the day," Dr Desai said, adding that he is discussing with the actor's family whether
to discharge him today or tomorrow .

Khan was operated on Monday at south Mumbai's [Images] Breach Candy hospital.

"The Arthroscopic method of surgery, which was performed on the star does not require opening of the entire joint. The
surgery ensure less pain and minimal scar," the doctor said.

The actor had injured his shoulder on the sets of Dulha Mil Gaya in November last.

Shah Rukh [Images] was in London [Images] to promote his latest film Billu during the weekend and returned to Mumbai on Monday after which he was admitted to the hospital in the afternoon.

His wife, Gauri is with him in the hospital.
