A photographer was injured after actor Shah Rukh Khan’s car accidentally ran over his foot in suburban Juhu.
The photographer was trying to click Shah Rukh’s pictures, who arrived at actor Alia Bhatt’s residence in Juhu last on Wednesday for her 24th birthday celebration.
Shah Rukh immediately stepped out of his vehicle and asked his bodyguard to take the photographer to a nearby hospital.
According to photographers who were present there, the injured person was a new lensman and he suffered minor injuries.
Last night was a nightmare for me and my team as one of my team member had an accident while covering the Alia Bhatt birthday bash. Deepak who recently joined me comes from a very small village on the border of Nepal and India. He is just getting to know how to shoot and infact I often shout at him for not taking pictures the right way. I give them there space but I prefer that they follow certain quality standards. Deepak sadly was not able to take good pictures of #shahrukhkhan when his car arrived. The others who are perhaps more experienced managed to get his pics. Perhaps getting scared that I would be upset, he challenged himself and his leg ran over his car tires. Obviously neither was the actor or the driver at fault. We have been chasing stars like idiots without checking the risk factors. But we continue doing so due to competition. SRK was kind enough to get out and send him in his own BMW and not even the Jeep to Nanavati hospita.l He has donated am entire ward there in the memory of his mother plus he knows most of the good doctors there. His manager to later called to check and made sure all the expenses were taken care. I and my team are grateful for his kindness and Deepak is recovering well.
“He was a new photographer so perhaps got a little too excited seeing Shah Rukh and couldn’t see that the car was very near to him. When the car ran over his foot, Shah Rukh immediately came out of the car along with his team to help him,” an eyewitness said.
“SRK then instructed his team to take the injured photographer to Nanavati hospital in his car and called up doctors at the hospital. Nothing major happened to the man but Shah Rukh entered the building only when his car left to the hospital.”
