Shahrukh turns daredevil with 300 foot plunge for Don 2

He may have vertigo, but that didn't stop Shah Rukh Khan from performing a stunt that even left wife Gauri Khan scared.

Khan jumped from a height of 300 feet from  the top of the Park Inn Hotel in Berlin for a sequence in Farhan Akhtar's Don 2. Known to perform daring stunts, Khan had begun to exercise caution thanks to serious injuries that he received suffered in the past.

"When Farhan asked Shah Rukh to jump, his first impulse was to say no. Then Shah Rukh asked Farhan to take the plunge first, hoping that Farhan would chicken out. To Shah Rukh's surprise, Farhan jumped, leaving Shah Rukh with no choice but to do the same," said a source.

Apparently, both the wives were stunned and disapproved of their husbands' daring. Adhuna Akhtar and Gauri Khan asked them to refrain from doing something similar in the future.

"I was little scared, as it was my first day and  it was cold. The shot needed me to be horizontally parallel to the ground," said Shah Rukh.
