Bollywood star Salman Khan has said that he would undertake a long-delayed trip abroad for treatment of a painful condition, which he had put off because of his acting schedule and the blackbuck poaching case in court.
"I had to delay going due to the acting schedules and the court cases. But now I will go," he told the media at a Celebrity Cricket League match in Kochi Saturday night.
Salman Khan is charged under the Wildlife Protection Act for allegedly poaching a blackbuck in Rajasthan in 1998.
Asked about the case, he said: "I cannot talk about it right now."
The 47-year-old is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia and aneurysm. In this condition, the patient suffers acute pain in his head, cheeks and jaws.
He had revealed to the media that he had the first attack of pain in the left side of his face during the making of his 2007 film "Partner" and that the pain came back while he was shooting for "Veer" (2010).
Salman underwent a surgery in Pittsburgh, US, in 2011, to treat the painful condition.
