It was in 2007 that SRK injured his left shoulder for the first time.

He tore his supraspinatus -- one of the four rotator-cuff muscles in the shoulders -- while shooting an action sequence for his much delayed film, Dulha Mil Gaya.

He injured it again in 2008.

His shoulder worsened again while shooting for My Name Is Khan, when he had to jump over Kajol. He misjudged the jump and landed on his shoulder.

Shah Rukh went in for surgery only after finishing the film's shoot.

In 1994, while shooting a running sequence in Rakesh Roshan's Koyla, Shah Rukh Khan hurt his left knee.

If you watch the film closely, you will see Shah Rukh running with a duppatta tied around his knee. While you may have thought it was for the film, SRK had actually used co-star Madhuri Dixit's dupatta to ease the pain.

Despite the injury, he continued to shoot as the film's set was in Arunachal Pradesh and halting the shoot would mean heavy losses to the producer.
