Salman leaves for US for nerve surgery

The actor is suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia, a nerve disorder that causes intense pain in the face. "Challo c u guys . On my way to fix the short circut in my nerve, take care n hope u like body guard.. (sic)" the actor wrote on social networking site twitter.

According to a source close to the actor, Salman, along with some of his family members, left for United States last night for the surgery. The 45-year-old actor started suffering from the pain in his jaw in 2007 while shooting for Partner. It got worse last year following which he has decided to undergo a surgery.

Salman is looking for a hat-trick of hits on Eid with Bodyguard, which releases on August 31. Wanted (2009), and Dabangg (2010) were Eid blockbusters, which revived Salman's sagging career.

Produced by Atul Agnihotri, Bodyguard stars Salman and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles. Salman's bodyguard Shera will also be seen in a song, along with the actor and his ex- girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
