Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, one of the teams in the Indian Premiere League!
Bollywood actor has always been a sports lover. And maybe that is the reason why he bought a team in IPL. While his team has performed really well in many seasons, there are many memorable incidents of the actor from the ground.
One such incident is when Shah Rukh seemed like he’d jump off the balcony. During Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected, he said, “I was just hanging there, waving my arms from my balcony. So, when we won it, it was a vindication of belief because a lot of people started telling me to sell the team which I never would. And I don’t say that out of evil, I said it out of belief and confidence.”
The actor went on to explain how we about to jump but Suhana stopped him. “Actually, the first match we won, I was going to jump from my balcony, but I think my kids, I think it was my daughter who caught me. I could have flown that night, but I settled at home,” said SRK.
His role of Kabir Khan from the movie Chak De India is very popular and so is his ’70 minutes’ speech. But the actor confessed how he has never given any such lecture to his team.
