Shah Rukh Khan — the man who has the sobriquet of King Khan in the Indian film industry — is by no means a haughty king. Rather the superstar is a humble, down-to-earth man who loves his millions of fans just as they love him. And on Wednesday, the Raees actor gave a perfect example of his kind-heartedness and his sensitivity towards the common man.
On Wednesday, Shah Rukh reached the residence of his Dear Zindagi co-star Alia Bhatt to extend his best wishes on the occasion of her 24th birthday celebrations. As expected, the actor was welcomed by a mob of photogs. Unfortunately, amidst all the hullabaloo, one of the photographers hurt himself in the excitement to capture his favourite star. It so happened that Shah Rukh’s car was speeding towards Alia’s residence when photographers noticed him and rushed to click his pictures. A photographer, who according to the reports is a newbie, got so excited that he didn’t take into notice the speed of the car and the car’s tyre ran over his leg.

The moment Shah Rukh saw the incident, he stepped out of the car to make sure that the photographer is fine. He asked his bodyguard to take the lensman to the Nanavati hospital and also assured everyone that he will take care of the medical bills as well. “He was a new photographer so perhaps got a little too excited seeing Shah Rukh and couldn’t see that the car was very near to him. When the car ran over his foot, Shah Rukh immediately came out of the car along with his team to help him,” an eyewitness said.
“SRK then instructed his team to take the injured photographer to Nanavati hospital in his car and called up doctors at the hospital. Nothing major happened to the man but Shah Rukh entered the building only when his car left to the hospital.” added the eyewitness.
