Shah Rukh Khan turns rescuer at Bachchan’s Diwali bash

This year there was a huge party thrown for Diwali at Amitabh Bachchan’s well-known house “Jalsa.” The Bachchan’s hosted a party after a gap of two years. Bollywood celebrities graced the event at the superstar’s residence all decorated with lights for the occasion. It was a gala time until things took an unfortunate turn.  

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s manager of a long time Archana Sadanand met with an almost-hazardous accident at the party. At around 3 am when few guests were left at the party, Archana was in the courtyard with her daughter and her lehenga caught fire due to a ‘Diya’. While most stared with astonishment, Shah Rukh Khan had the presence of mind to put the fire out with his jacket.   
Archana suffered 15 percent burn injuries on her hands and right leg while Shah Rukh Khan suffered some minor burns. Archana is recovering from her injuries and is currently being kept in isolation in the ICU to avoid infections.   
Shah Rukh Khan received praise for his quick thinking. Farah Khan tweet for him read, “@iamsrk mohabbatman to the rescue! Praying for Archana’s speedy recovery ”
