“The actor was suffering from dehydration"

Shah Rukh Khan has been taken to hospital after suffering heatstroke.

The Bollywood icon was in Ahmedabad to watch the IPL match between his Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 21, 2024.

After his side reached the final, SRK celebrated the team’s triumph with a lap of honour at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

However, Shah Rukh was admitted to hospital due to heatstroke.

Parts of India are experiencing a fierce heatwave, with temperatures surpassing 40°C.

According to reports, SRK was taken to KD Hospital, with Ahmedabad (Rural) Superintendent of Police Om Prakash Jat saying:

“Actor Shah Rukh Khan was admitted to KD Hospital after suffering from heatstroke.”

Juhi Chawla and his wife Gauri Khan have visited the star in hospital.

A statement read: “The actor was suffering from dehydration amid a high temperature of 45-degree Celsius in Ahmedabad.

“He is under medical observation although his health is stable. Security has been tightened around the hospital.”

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani shared an update to reassure concerned fans.

Her post read: “To all of Mr Khan’s fans and well-wishers – he is doing well. Thank you for your love, prayers and concern.”

A friend told Bollywood Hungama: “It was the heat that did it. Shah Rukh had a very high fever and they had to rush him to the hospital.

“Gauri is with him in Ahmedabad. They will fly back today together.

“But he is fine now and will be coming back home to Mumbai today from Ahmedabad with his wife Gauri who flew into Ahmedabad to be with SRK, although he kept insisting that she needn’t fly down.”

According to the friend, SRK is expected to take a week off from work.

The source continued: “SRK refuses to take holidays unless forced. This is God’s way of telling him to slow down.

“Standing around in the intense heat for the IPL matches has taken a toll.”

Around the same time, his son Aryan was wrapping up the shooting of his series Stardom when he heard of his father being hospitalised.

The friend added: “Both Aryan and Suhana, who incidentally celebrated her birthday yesterday, wanted to immediately fly to Ahmedabad.

“But Shah Rukh told them to hold their horses. He is fine and returning to Mumbai today to spend some family time.”
