Shah Rukh Khan provides financial aid to an ailing senior film reporter

After winning our hearts with a sweet performance in the just released movie ‘Dear Zindagi’, Shah Rukh Khan has done a noble gesture off screen. The actor has provided financial aid to a senior reporter who suffered a major accident recently. A source close to a web portal spoke about the accident by saying, “The accident occurred on Saturday morning at Yari Road when a tanker ran over his left leg and crushed his toe. The tanker driver rushed him to Cooper hospital. But no one took care of him there. He was just lying in casualty ward. Then he was shifted to Nanavati for proper medical attention. He was operated on Saturday night. For the moment, there is no circulation of blood in his toe and doctors have advised amputation.”

Wife of Ali Peter John, Ms Usha Peter Ali has confirmed that SRK is indeed helping with finances. Said Ms Usha, “Shah Rukh has indeed offered financial aid for the treatment of my husband. His team approached us through Dr Ali Irani, HOD Physiotherapy, NSSH and stated that they would take care of all his hospitalization expenses.” Dr. A.R.Karkhanis, Trauma & Orthopedic Surgeon, NSSH said, “The accident has led to multiple fractures in his left foot. Following a series of complex surgeries, we have fixed his foot and held it together with wires and plaster. The skin of his left foot’s sole has come off completely and will have to be replaced with a skin grafting procedure. There is no need to amputate his foot and only the crushed toes have been amputated.”

The journalist has been closely associated with Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan. His book on Mr Bachchan was launched by the Big B himself.
