Kolkata Knight Riders started their Indian Premier League campaign with a bang with somewhere they had lost their winning touch and are yet to qualify for the play-offs but are not far from qualifying as well. As of now they stand second on the point table and have 16 points to their credit.
KKR Owner Shah Rukh Khan who has been missing from the stadium to support the team but can be seen sharing motivational message for the team through social media. As per Teams CEO, Venky Mysore, was quoted saying that King Khan will cheering the team from the squad and their home ground Eden Garden. Venky made the above fact available to the fans that “You are going to see him (SRK) on Saturday. He’s coming with a big entourage. He’s looking forward to it.”
The team is struggling these days and have lost three consecutive games but hope fortune will change with the presence of the Bollywood star and hope their fortune favours the brave. This season the King Khan only attended one match and which was won by the team. Mysire further elaborated that“Shah Rukh came for the opening game in Rajkot and we had a really good result in that match (won by 10 wickets). Hopefully, he will bring back luck in our last game as well. We are really looking forward to it.”
Mysore further added the real reason behind Shah Rukh Khan absence from this year IPL, is that he is very bust with work commitment and had blocked the dates well in advance. He was also quoted saying that, “I know the pressure he’s going through. He has just completed the schedule of a big banner film and has started another one. He went to Canada for a TED Conference and then was honoured at the San Francisco Film Festival. He was a special invitee. I don’t know how he does it. But he keeps up with all our games, you can see it from his tweets,”
