A resident of Madhya Pradesh's Khandwa district was so overcome after watching the flying stunts performed by Hrithik Roshan in his latest Krrish that he too jumped from the balcony of a cinema theatre, fracturing his hands and legs in the process.
The incident occurred during the night show at Khandwa's Abhishek Theatre on Friday when Vishnu Jagannath, 21, inspired by a flying scene enacted by Hrithik, climbed up to the 30-foot-high theatre balcony and tried to do the same by jumping from there.
Jagannath, who runs a tea stall near the theatre, was immediately taken to the district hospital in an unconscious state around 10.30 pm. "His condition is now stable," DC Sagar, Khandwa superintendent of police, said.
"A case of suicide has, however, been registered against him," he added.
