Shah Rukh Khan, at the Udaipur airport as he came to attend an NRI wedding in the city
There was a moment’s stunned silence, and a few women close by even gasped, as Shah Rukh Khan walked out of the Udaipur airport with a supporting crutch held in his left hand.
Looking a bit tired, he had a woollen hairband on the head, and wore black trousers and a white shirt. This was perhaps SRK’s first outing after he was hurt on the sets of Farah Khan’s Happy New Year, when a door fell on him.
The injury was such that he had been advised bedrest by the doctors, but guess this NRI wedding in Udaipur, for which he had come, was an event he was committed to attending. Twitter soon exploded with ‘get well soon, SRK’ messages, as this picture went viral.
The actor attended the wedding reception held at Jag Mandir on Thursday evening. Many other stars also made it to the wedding functions of the NRI couple, Heena and Gaurav. Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, Malaika Arora Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Terence Lewis and Sonu Nigam were among those present at the sangeet ceremony hosted in Zanana Mahal of City Palace.
The actors danced till the wee hours. Malaika and Karan, who were hosting the sangeet ceremony, reached the venue together. Johar wrote on a micro-blogging site, “Just landed in Udaipur for a friend’s wedding!!! Lovely weather…”
