Shahrukh Khan still in pain, cancelled Friday shoot


Shahrukh Khan who has suffered injury on the set of Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ on Thursday shoot has not fully recovered to resume shooting. He is still in pain and the Friday shoot has been called off.

"Shah Rukh was shooting with Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Deepika Padukone for Farah Jhan's 'Happy New Year' when a heavy 10x5 door came crashing down straight towards Shah Rukh. He ducked. But couldn't escape entirely though. He had bleeding gash on the right side of his forehead. His knee was also injured," said the eyewitness.

The worst part is that he took the heavy weight on his shoulder which got operated couple of times.

Says the eyewitness: "Shah Rukh was in a lot of pain. He is 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 scans were done."

The result of the tests was awaited.  Though in pain, Shahrukh insisted on returning to shoot after the hospitalisation but he was not allowed.

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."

While shooting for Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’, Shahrukh Khan narrowly escaped death when a 80 kg door unhooked and came crashing down on him. Situation would have turned worse if the actor not have acted immediately. The actor moved the door at the right time and only sustained minor facial injury.

He was immediately rushed to hospital and was accompanied by his ‘Happy New Year’ team including Farah Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. 

Gauri Khan was informed and she rushed to Nanavati hospital. After treatment, he was discharged and headed home with wife Gauri.

Shahrukh Khan was shooting a song sequence for the film when the heavy weight door fell over him.

We wish the superstar a speedy recovery!
