NEW DELHI: Looks like Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' journey by rail, from Mumbai to Delhi, was not as smooth as expected.
It turned fatal on Tuesday as one of his fans died in Gujarat's Vadodara, which left the 51-year-old actor deeply saddened.
While speaking to the media on the same, he said, "One of our colleagues was traveling with us. Her uncle came down to see her at Baroda. He suffered from a cardiac arrest. It was really unfortunate."
"We started the journey thinking we all will travel, spend time with each other when one of your own loses someone one trip like this, it saddens us all. On behalf of everyone, our prayers and blessings with the whole family. She has reached there. I just spoke to her. I think the burial is in an hour or half hour," continued the 'Dilwale' actor.
Adding, "We have some of our people with the family members there. Hopefully God will bless her soon.”
For the unversed, SRK started his promotional journey by train, from Mumbai to his hometown Delhi, where fans gathered at every station the train halted to meet their superstar.
While SRK did not step down from the train, choosing to wave at the crowds and urged them to watch the film on a loudspeaker, fans in Vadodara swarmed the railway platforms since several hours before the scheduled arrival of the train.
Due to this chaos, two fans were injured at the Vadodara Railway Station.
While one breathed his last, the other was rushed to a hospital for immediate treatment.
Rahul Dholakia directed 'Raees,' which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan, is set to be released on January 25.
