Says a source close to the actor, "After the seven-hour surgery the doctors had prescribed a strict regime for Salman to follow. But he has defied the rules, as usual. He's filled with mauj-masti in the US. He's very happy. Salman has been calling up his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri for the box-office figures of Bodyguard. Though the doctors have predicted the possibility of a second surgery three months from now, Salman has healed with amazing dexterity leaving even his surgeons flummoxed."
Atul Agnihotri confirms Salman's heartening recovery. "Salman has a Trigeminal Neuralgia with an AV Malformation. He also has another rare complication. He has been treated in the US. The procedure took seven hours and it is successful."
About Salman not paying attention to doctors' orders Atul says, "He is en route to recovery defying post-operation instructions. That's Salman for you."
About further treatment, Atul says, "Salman has to get a check-up done in three months to decide if he needs to get a second procedure done. He should commence shooting for Yash Raj soon in Dublin."
Sources at Yash Raj confirm that the shooting resumes on September 10 which incidentally is the date when Salman's Dabangg had released.
