It is also reported that she sustained 15 percent burns.
The source said, “It was just after 3 am and a few guests were still around. Archana was with her daughter in the courtyard when her lehenga caught fire. Those around were stunned and didn’t know what to do. Shah Rukh had the presence of mind, rushed to Archana, and put out the fire. He, too, sustained minor burns while dousing the flames with a jacket. His only thought was to put out the fire.” Additional Commissioner of Police (West) Manoj Kumar Sharma also issued a statement that stated Archana confirmed the scary incident.
