Shah Rukh trended all of Wednesday for reports stating he rescued Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's manager Archana Sadanand from an accidental fire at the Bachchans' Diwali bash, after which Salman dedicated a cryptic Instagram post to his Karan Arjun co-star. Sharing a clip from Chennai Express song Manwa Lage, featuring Shah Rukh, Salman added a voice-over that said, "Hero woh hota hai jo aagme kudke, bujhake, bachata hai."
Needless to say that within minutes of being shared, Salman's post for Shah Rukh garnered over 5 lakh views on Instagram. Salman's words in the video are actually a revised version of his dialogue from Sultan, which said: "Sab yeh sochte hai ki hero woh hota hai joh jeetta hai... mera yeh manana hai ki hero woh hai joh haarta hai... kyun ki wohi jaanta hai jeetne ki asli value."
Here's Salman's post for Shah Rukh that recorded 2,448,741 views in 13 hours.
As per sources, Archana's lehenga caught fire when she was standing with her daughter in the courtyard of Amitabh Bachchan's house Jalsa. After the incident, Shah Rukh rushed to Archana and put out the fire with the help of his jacket. Although the fire was put out, Archana sustained burn injuries to her hands and right leg and is currently recovering at Nanavati Hospital. The Mohabattein actor too sustained minor burns. The sources added that the fire broke out around 3 am after Archana's lehenga came in contact with a diya. "Archana was with her daughter in the courtyard when her lehenga caught fire. Those around were stunned and didn't know what to do. Shah Rukh had the presence of mind, rushed to Archana, and put out the fire. He, too, sustained minor burns while dousing the flames with a jacket. His only thought was to put out the fire."
