Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is set to welcome 2012 in Dubai.

Although the actor’s plans have not yet been revealed, he may attend the New Year’s Eve celebrations at QE2, according to media reports.

Khan, who turned 46 on Dec 27, initially made plans to celebrate his birthday in Dubai. But later he decided on an intimate celebration with family and close friends at his farmhouse in Panvel, near Mumbai.

The actor had been suffering with nerve disorder, trigeminal neuralgia for seven years. He underwent an eight-hour operation in September to treat the disorder. Experts warn that a second bout of surgery may be required in January 2012.

But despite his health woes, Khan has had a lot to celebrate about this year.

He starred in two of this year’s biggest Bollywood blockbusters: ‘Ready’ and ‘Bodyguard’.

Hindi film industry’s domestic revenues hit 19.25bn rupees ($363.2m) in 2011, up from 14.5bn rupees in 2010 and an unprecedented four films crossed the billion rupee milestone.

‘Bodyguard’, in which Khan plays a personal security guard to a rich man's daughter who ends up falling in love with her, was the most successful Bollywood film, raking in more than 1.5bn rupees ($28m) at domestic box offices.

According to other media reports, actor Shah Rukh Khan is also likely to be in Dubai for the New Year. He will be partying with his family and friends including Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Karan Johar.
