His younger brother Surender Rana revealed that the wrestler is somewhat better now and is kept under observation in the hospital.
Apparently, the incident stemmed from comments made by Khali at a launch event earlier this week; Khali was quoted as saying:
“People keep making these empty threats and useless statements every day. If they have the guts they should stop talking and come and meet me in the ring and then we will see who is who. Just because we are Indians they think they are superior and can say and do whatever they want. They have not only challenged me but also the spirit of India and I am not going to let them win. I, The Great Khali, today promise all of you’ll that I will kick each one of their asses and not rest in peace till I do so. I today sign my own death warrant as a mark of this resolve. This to me now is far bigger than my own personal ego and is a matter of national pride.”
