TESTIMONIAL: “Only you can make media miracles happen, Dale. You are the media monarch with the midas touch.” -Chaitanya Padukone, eminent senior film journalist and author
Following the wrap-up of the Dus Ka Dum Sony TV press-conference on Monday night, addressed by actor-host Salman Khan, senior film journalist Chaitanya Padukone had a nasty accidental fall from the reality-show elevated stage-sets into a freak vacant space at Film City, Mumbai.
With a deep bleeding gash-wound on his right knee, Chaitanya was administered first-aid and later rushed by fellow film journalist Bharati Dubey, to a nearby hospital, where he was required to undergo multiple surgical stitches and medical treatment.
Currently he is discharged and gradually recovering. Incidentally, Chaitanya happens to personally know Salman even before the mega-star-actor made his acting debut with the movie Biwi Ho Toh Aisi (1988).
Wishing Chaitanya a speedy recovery.
A big ‘thank you’ to senior award-winning journalist Chaitanya Padukone for this lovely article on my National Award-winning PR client Preetisheel Singh in Afternoon Despatch & Courier.
