Prior to the release of his highly anticipated film, Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan initiated an interactive session with his fans on Twitter. Within minutes #AskSRK started trending on the social media platform with the Bollywood superstar choosing to answer a few selected questions. Among the few that he opted to reply to, was a request from a Rishabh Pant fan who asked the ‘King of Bollywood’ to pray for Pant’s speedy recovery.
Responding to his request, the 57-year-old, whose last movie as a lead actor was Zero, wrote: “Inshaallah he will be well soon. He is a fighter and a very tough guy.”

Notably, Pant met with an accident on the Delhi-Dehradun highway when he reportedly dozed off while driving. The wicketkeeper-batter wanted to surprise his mother for New Year and opted to drive his Mercedes to his hometown Roorkee after returning from Dubai.
Pant’s car rammed into the divider and flipped over twice before it caught fire. Fortunately, the cricketer was helped out of the window minutes before the vehicle was burnt completely. After receiving treatment for impact injuries at Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre, Pant underwent treatment at the Max Hospital in Dehradun.
