Shah Rukh Khan is one of the stunning actors of his generation, which needs no introduction. However, it is his humble nature towards his co-stars, and other celebrities in the industry that often grabs the headline. Now, in a video, the actor opened up about his feelings when he saw Indian cricketer, Rishabh Pant's accident. For the unversed, it was in December 2022, when Rishabh was pulled out of a car wreck in a major car accident. His knee was twisted, and his muscles and ligaments were torn due to the same. It was indeed one of the most horrific incidents in Rishabh's life, and almost fifteen months later, he padded up for the IPL, defying the odds.
