Shah Rukh Khan with KKR members

Mumbai, May 29: He has been one of the coolest franchise owners of the Indian Premier League (IPL) since its inception. He has been very supportive and despite the results, has always stood beside his team

Bollywood super star Shah Rukh Khan as the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has been extremely supportive of his team. As the KKR team clinched their third IPL title this season, SRK was elated. He did not hide his feelings neither in the field or outside.

He appreciated not only his players, former captain turned mentor Gautam Gambhir but every member of KKR family. 

Taking to X, Shah Rukh shared a picture from the post-final celebrations with the caption: “To my boys…. my team…. my champs…'these blessed candles of the night'… My Stars of KKR. I cannot do a lot of things and you cannot do them all either…but together we manage most of them. That’s what @KKRiders stood for. Simply being together. Beyond the ability and guidance of @GautamGambhir… the earnestness of Chandu, the love of @abhisheknayar1 & leadership of @ShreyasIyer15 ... the dedication of @rtendo27 , Bharat Arun @1crowey & @Numb3z."

He added, “Gautam (the mentor of KKR) said if you can’t support a single vision as a team, you are leading to a division in the team. Each player understood that. Young and old. The Trophy is not a testament of having the best players in the team. But a proof of each player being the best for the team. Boys you are all made of Star stuff."

The actor also said he loves each member of his team as he urged them not to let the dancing stop.

 “Also, so happy and thankful for each and every KKR fan and I hope all around the world, youngsters learn that Tough times don’t last. Finally, Tough and Happy teams do! Korbo…Lorbo…Jeetbo….Always. See you all at the stadia in 2025 (sic)," he added.

Success has many fathers but failure has none. But Shah Rukh has always encouraged his players. He even openly admitted that some former players of his time like Dinesh Karthik are lose to his heart. They might be playing for different teams, but he always wished them to do well.

Shah Rukh even roped in Gautam Gambhir as a mentor for 10 years. It was Gambhir who was KKR captain when it won two IPL titles in 2012 and 2014. Again Gambhir's return as a mentor to the KKR family was celebrated with yet another IPL trophy in 2024.

During all these years since 2008, SRK has been with KKR family as a cool owner and guardian throughout. (With IANS Support)
