To me, these age boys are like my own sons:  Shah Rukh Khan

Speaking with Star Sports, King Khan said,  “I was horrified. I saw that video of his car because we didn’t know the result of that accident. You get the worst feeling. To me, these age boys are like my own sons. My team has a few, Rishabh himself, and so many youngsters. A wound like this is a double jeopardy for a sportsperson, even worse than for us.”

“Rishabh is a winner, and I wish him all the best. I hope his knee heals completely. I asked him to remain seated because his knee might be hurting. I was hugging him and telling him, ‘Are you well?’. I had not seen him post this accident at all. I am glad Rishabh is back and playing well, and I hope he keeps on playing well.”
