Shah Rukh Khan turns real life hero; saves Aishwarya Rai’s manager from a fire mishap at Bachchans’ Diwali bash
On big screen, we have seen Shah Rukh Khan risking his own life to save someone else from a mishap quite a few times. While those scenes are reel, this Diwali, the Badshah of Bollywood turned a hero in real life as he averted a major unfortunate accident at Amitabh Bachchan’s Diwali bash at the latter’s Jalsa residence. Yes, as per reports in a leading daily, with his bravery and presence of mind, SRK rescued Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s manager and leading publicist Archana Sadanand after her lehenga caught fire at the Diwali party.
According to a report in Mid-Day, the accident occurred around 3 am only when a few guests were left at the party. “It was just after 3 am and a few guests were still around. Those around were stunned and didn’t know what to do. Shah Rukh had the presence of mind, rushed to Archana, and put out the fire. He, too, sustained minor burns while dousing the flames with a jacket. His only thought was to put out the fire,” a source told the daily.
Archana is currently admitted at Nanavati Hospital as she sustained 15 per cent burns on her right leg and arms. She is kept in isolation in the ICU to avoid infections. Sources from the Hospital told Mid-day that Archana is recovering well. She was made to walk for a few minutes in the ICU on Tuesday but is not allowed to meet visitors yet. Meanwhile, SRK also suffered minor burns.
Bollywood director and SRK’s close friend, Farah Khan took to her Twitter to praise King Khan for his heroic act. She wrote, “@iamsrk mohabbatman to the rescue ! Praying for Archana’s speedy recovery”
