Superstar Shah Rukh Khan sustained slight scratches when a glass door crashed near him due to excessive media frenzy at a music release function in Mumbai recently.
SRK arrived at a multiplex in a suburban area to attend the music launch of the film Jai Jaganath. There were huge crowds gathered at the multiplex waiting to catch a glimpse of the star. In the usual fan mayhem, a glass door close to SRK gave way and shattered spraying the actor with fine glass shards.
Although SRK was not gravely injured he did receive a few cuts. But the management immediately helped SRK and provided him with ice for his cuts. However, SRK is fine and such a minor incident can barely deter the man. He later also gave autographs and posed for a few pictures.
There was a lot of media presence at the event since Shah Rukh Khan was present. As we were escorting the actor to the venue, cameras were moving in front of us and as they approached the glass door near the theatre, it crashed. According to sources, King Khan sustained just one "minor" scratch due to the incident and no one was injured seriously.
Shah Rukh just brushed it off and he created absolutely no fuss. The event went on as usual.
"The media's overtures are always like this - in fact, their love is not complete without some shattered glass thrown in for good measure. So thank you, that you all love me so much. May buildings and monuments crumble next time," said SRK flashing that dimple, and assured everyone that he wasn't hurt. "I have been abroad for a month, so I guess the people really missed me," the King Khan added.
