Sadanand was admitted to the Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai and is kept in isolation in the ICU to prevent infections. Doctors says that she has suffered 15% burns on her right leg and hands. Even Shah Rukh suffered some minor burns and injuries.

When the accident occurred around 3 am, only a few guests were left at the party. “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,” a source told the daily.
