Shah Rukh Khan is taking it easy after being operated on as he will be involved in underwater stunts while shooting for Rohit Shetty’s film,  Dilwale. The patella that SRK’s doctor mentioned in his statement is the kneecap which has been grinding for years due to lack of adequate rest. The pain is felt only when the wearing of the kneecap reaches an advance stage so SRK will have to take it easy and be careful once he starts shooting again or he can cause irreparable damage that can also result in the need for a knee arthroplasty (knee replacement) if the worst case scenario is observed.
