Salman Khan fatally injured Shah Rukh Khan
Salman Khan who was recently seen on Aap Ki Adalat opened up on a prank on the sets of Karan Arjun. The actor confessed that he was playing with a blank gun and shot SRK for fun. But the latter ended up falling down.
The Bajrangi Bhaijaan said, “I got a blank gun from action director Bhiku Verma. I told Shah Rukh, I’ll call you for dance, you refuse, then we will engage in scuffle, and here’s a blank gun. I will fire a shot and you will fall down. Then I called him and Shah Rukh Khan refused. ‘I am very tired’, he told me.”
Further, he continued, “My brother Sohail was there. I pulled Shah Rukh’s hand, and he snatched it away. He pushed me, so, I pushed him, and a scuffle ensued. I took out the gun and fired a shot at him. Shah Rukh did a somersault and fell down.”
The incident left everyone on the sets in shock. Salman recalled how some of them even wanted to escape thinking that SRK was actually injured. I said, ‘Shah Rukh Uth, Shah Rukh Uth (Shah Rukh wake-up)’ we are doing a drama. When he didn’t wake up, Sohail and Bhiku Da panicked. Suddenly Shah Rukh started snoring. So, the Pathaan was alive and everybody started laughing. I think he is the best perform of the industry.”
