Salman Khan suffers serious injury at an award function

The choreographer fell from a height about two storey

Choreographer-turned-actor Salman Yusuff Khan was injured when his stunt went horribly wrong during a performance at the Big Star Entertainment Awards.

Salman, along with Remo D'Souza, Prabhudheva and his team of upcoming film "ABCD - Any Body Can Dance", was performing during the awards ceremony Sunday, when his acrobatic entry went wrong and he fell onto the floor.

"At the awards ceremony, 30 seconds into the act and Salman fell down from a height about two storey. We had to rush him to Kokilaben Hospital. Doctors gave him anesthesia and took X-rays. He also had to do CT scan and MRI," Rucha Pathak, senior executive director, Studios, Disney UTV said in a statement.

Rehearsals were spectacular and just when the performance started - 30 seconds within the act when Salman made his acrobatic entry - he fell down badly on the floor (his stunt was from a two storey height) and seriously injured himself.

The act had to be stopped and Remo, Prabhu along with the organisers rushed to him. The organisers were prompt to call for an ambulance and he was admitted to a nearby hospital.

X-ray, MRI, CT scan was conducted on him. Though he is feeling much better now, he has bruises all over his body.

The team had to carry on with the performance without Salman - and as soon as the performance was over they rushed to the hospital and stayed with him till the doctors said that he was out of danger.

Salman will be discharged later today but he will be kept in hospital for observation.
