Aishwarya Rai’s publicist Archana Sadanand escaped a fire accident during Amitabh Bachchan‘s Diwali party at his Juhu home and it was all thanks to Shah Rukh Khan‘s quick thinking. Due to the fire mishap, Shah Rukh and Archana both have suffered minor burns.

Sadanand is known to have represented Aishwarya for quite a long time. She suffered from burns on her hands and right leg after her lehenga came in contact with a diya. She was soon taken to Nanavati Hospital.

According to a report in Mid-Day, sources in Nanavati Hospital said that Sadanand was admitted on Monday. She is kept in isolation in the ICU to prevent infections. Doctors said she sustained 15 per cent burns. Shah Rukh also suffered minor burns.

Apparently the accident happened very late and there were only a few guests around. An insider told Mid-Day, “It was just after 3 am and a few guests were still around,Β Archana was with her daughter in the courtyard when her lehenga caught fire. Those around were stunned and didn’t know what to do. Shah Rukh had the presence of mind, rushed to Archana, and put out the fire. He, too, sustained minor burns while dousing the flames with a jacket. His only thought was to put out the fire.

Bollywood director Farah Khan took to her Twitter to praise Shah Rukh Khan for his heroic act as she wrote, “πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»@iamsrk mohabbatman to the rescue ! Praying for Archana β€˜s speedy recovery πŸ™πŸ»

Well, thanks to Shah Rukh a major accident was prevented. We wish both Shah Rukh and Archana a speedy recovery.
