As per a Mid-Day report, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s manager, Archana Sadanand’s lehenga had caught fire at the Diwali party and it was Shah Rukh Khan, who had saved her from the same. A source had shared, “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.”
