Shah Rukh Khan, who gave us the best Diwali gift by featuring in a talk show with David Letterman, ended up being a saviour for Aishwariya Rai’s Publicist Archana Sadhana as her lehenga caught fire at Bachchan’s Diwali Party. The accident happened all of a sudden when the lehenga came in contact with the diya.
Among the busy guests of the party, it was SRK who caught the attention of Archana’s Lehenga which was ablazed by fire. The actor used his presence of mind and ran to the publicist’s rescue by putting off the fire with his jacket. Archana had unfortunately underwent burn injuries on her hands and right leg due to this accident.
In the process of saving her, Shah Rukh Khan also suffered minor burns from the accident. An insider from Bachchan’s party revealed to a leading daily that. “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.”
Reportedly, Archana has been admitted to Nanavati Hospital and undergoing treatment for her burn injuries. The Hospital sources are restricting themselves from revealing more details about the accident, but they have assured that the publicist is having a speedy recovery.
We are still looking forward to an update on Shah Rukh Khan’s health and recovery post the accident. Shah Rukh Khan had attended the party with his wife Gauri Khan. On the work front, the actor is still finalizing on scripts and hasn’t officially announced his next project.
