BOLLYWOOD: A report published by a leading news agency alarmingly claims that Shahrukh Khan has fractured his shoulder when a door fell on him earlier this week during the shooting of Farah Khan’s Happy New year .
The report has created concern and panic among Shahrukh’s colleagues in the film industry.
However an eyewitness to the accident dismisses these panic rumours saying, “Shahrukhhas hurt his shoulder and knees. But he has certainly not fractured his shoulders. This kind of panic writing does no service to Shah Rukh or to the entertainment industry as it unnecessarily creates an aura of non-safety. Accidents can happen anywhere and to anyone. Why create unwarranted panic?”
Elaborating further, the eyewitness says, “Because of his shoulder surgeries Shahrukh’s shoulder is weak. The upper body took the brunt of the fallen door. But nothing broke. Our director Farah Khan decided to take Friday off so Shah Rukh could rest over the long weekend. We’re back to shooting on Tuesday.”
Actor Sonu Sood, who was shooting during the accident, confirmed Shahrukh Khan’s relatively unhurt condition.
“Shahrukh has not fractured his shoulder. That’s all I’d like to say,” said Sonu Sood
