Megastar Chiranjeevi operated in Mumbai today

Megastar Chiranjeevi was operated today in Mumbai Breach Candy hospital. It is said to be a minor shoulder operation. According to reports, for the past few months the actor was struggling with his shoulder pain and decided to get it checked.

A source close to Chiranjeevi has confirmed about his surgery, which took place today, "It's a very minor surgery. Over the last few months, he's been struggling with some pain in his shoulder. He has finally decided to get it operated as he starts shooting for his next film from March, and doesn't want the pain to aggravate," IANS quoted a source as saying.

Chiranjeevi’s not turning up for the voting in the elections for GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) raised several speculations.  It is reported the actor had checked in Breach Candy Hospital two days before the surgery. He was under doctor’s supervision.

The superstar has been advised rest by the doctors for couple of weeks. After recovering fully, Chiranjeevi will kick-start the shooting of his comeback film, which is supposed to be the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster ‘Kaththi’. The film will also mark Chiranjeevi's 150th film.

As he was away from showbiz for few years, Chiranjeevi has put on some extra flab and as now that he has gone on preparation mode for his role, he has started maintaining a strict regime of diet and exercise to shed some weight. In February 2015, he had also camped in a Kerala spa for some days.

However, his daughter Sriji will tie the knot for the second time next month.

Here’s wishing the megastar a speedy recovery!
