Shah Rukh Khan Aishwarya Rai diwali party fire Shah Rukh Khan rescued Aishwarya Rai’s manager Archana as her lehenga caught fire.

The Bachchan Diwali bash in Mumbai had a small fire accident in the wee hours of Monday, following the party that started during the evening of Sunday, October 27. The party was held at Bachchans’ Juhu residence.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s manager, Archana Sadanand’s lehenga caught fire at the party, while actor Katrina Kaif suffered minor injuries as well, claim eye witnesses. Fortunately, Shah Rukh Khan, who was also present at the Diwali party, was quick on his feet as he jumped to save Archana and Katrina by dousing the fire with his jacket. While trying to help Archana, SRK also sustained minor burns. Archana has represented Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for more than ten years now.

Archana was rushed to Nanavati hospital, which is very close to the Bachchan residence and is being treated there. Our hospital source tells, “Archana is stable now and is kept in the ICU so she doesn’t succumb to any infections. She has sustained 15% burn injuries on her legs and arms.”

Even superstar Salman Khan reacted to the news by posting a video of Shah Rukh on his Instagram handle from his film Happy New Year, where the latter could be seen shrugging off fire.
