Salman Khan heading to LA for medical check-up

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is heading to Los Angeles for medical check-up. It was due for quite sometime and as soon as he finished the shooting of the promos of the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 8’, he flew off to Los Angeles. He will not be present during the Ganpati festival this year. Salman will make several stops before going to LA. Says a source, "The actor has gone to Dubai from where he will travel to Toronto for a show and then to LA for his routine medical check-up."

Way back in 2011, Salman Khan was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia and a brain aneurysm and since then the actor has been advised to go to LA in regular intervals for his medical check up. The source says, "It is a annual medical check up that the actor has gone for."

Ganpati festival is celebrated with full devotion in Salman’s festival. Basically, his youngest sister Arpita makes all the arrangement of the festival but Sallu will not be present this year. “He will go to Dubai from LA on September 8 and then return to Mumbai on September 13,” says the source.

Once he’s back, he will start shooting for Bigg Boss, which goes on air next month. “After this, he will resume shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s film, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, on September 23. As it happens, the sets of his show and his film are quite close to each other,” says the source.
