"I have gone through surgery for ACL and meniscus in the knees. ACL is like a muscle tear whereas Meniscus is like a cushion between the joints of the knee bones," says Sharad.

He had knee problems ever since he shot for an action sequence in the show. "I was badly hurt at that point of time, but then I thought by going for swimming and regular workouts, my knees will be fine. All of a sudden, the pain worsened and I had to go for surgery", he adds.

"After a week or two, I can resume work but doctors have told me not to dance or walk fast, or else the problem will get aggravated again. I'm also planning to go for physiotherapy after the recovery", explains Sharad. 

Talking about the precautions to be taken, the actor says, "After the surgery, the muscles become weak. So I need to take more care. In the long run I have to keep my muscles strong and if I hurt myself in the same area again, I may have to get it operated once more".

"ACL can be replaced through thigh or calf bone, but Meniscus cannot. So I will be taking good care but at the same time have to follow the precautions given by my doctor", he concludes.

We wish Sharad a speedy recovery...
