Shah Rukh’s injured, shooting cancelled

Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s injury, which his…ahem…colleague Salman Khan has described as “ok” is not so okay. According to an eyewitness, Shah Rukh was not just injured but also badly shaken by the accident.

Shah Rukh’s injured, shooting cancelled

“Shah Rukh was shooting with Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Deepika Padukone for Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ when a heavy 10×5 door came crashing down straight towards Shah Rukh. He ducked. But couldn’t escape entirely though. He had a bleeding gash on the right side of his forehead. His knee was also injured,” said the eyewitness.

Worst of all, Shah Rukh’s shoulder, which has undergone several surgeries, took the weight of the falling door.  Says the eyewitness: “Shah Rukh was in a lot of pain. He has also become frail because of the repeated injuries and surgeries. The entire team went to the hospital with him. They were there for more than four hours. Thorough tests, including CT scan and an MRI scan, were done.”  The test reports are awaited.  In the meanwhile, Shah Rukh insisted on returning to shoot after the hospitalization.  Says the eyewitness: “Shah Rukh and the entire team went back to shoot at the Marriott. Shah Rukh had his hand in a sling. He took of his sling and did his shots. But he was quite shaken. The shooting has been cancelled on Friday to allow Shah Rukh to rest.” Subhash Jha.
