Salman Khan takes extreme health risks to do his own stunts

Bollywood actor Salman Khan suffers from a rare nerve disorder which keeps him in pain perpetually. He even underwent a surgery last year in the US but it seems to have made little difference as he is still in pain.

Those who suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia, as the nerve disorder is known as in medical terms, have to be very careful about not hurting the affected nerves.

In Salman's case, that added up to not doing any action scenes in any of his films as a punch on his face could turn fatal.

But salman is not one to lend any ears to his doctors. He underwent extensive Parkour training for a month so that he could do his own stunts in his upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger. The training involved running, climbing and leaping, reports Hindustan Times.

An insider from the project told the daily that the film includes long chase sequences and hand-to-hand combat. Salman took intensive training before he started shooting for the action scenes.
