The crew welcomed him with a standing ovation. The 48-year-old was taken to Nanavati Hospital following a minor injury caused by a door on the sets of the movie. He was discharged within two hours and went straight back to work, said his spokesperson.
“Shah Rukh had a slight cut on his forehead, and he was taken to the hospital as a precaution to make sure there was no serious injury. He is going back to work now,” the actor’s spokesperson said soon after his discharge. His wife Gauri Khan was by his side. However, she left the hospital premises a few minutes before SRK.

SRK is good and being stubborn about resuming shoot...so we are back to work. God’s been good,” tweeted Farah, adding, “The entire crew gives a standing ovation to the returning hero.”
