The co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders and Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan couldn't hold back his admiration for the former India and RCB skipper, Virat Kohli. He affectionately referred to the legendary batter as Bollywood’s ‘Daamad’ (son-in-law), shedding light on their long-standing friendship.

Shahrukh shared that he has spent a considerable amount of time with Virat Kohli and holds him dear. He mentioned that he has known Kohli and Anushka Sharma for a long time, having spent ample time together, even during Kohli's dating period. King Khan didn't stop at admiration; he even shared a delightful anecdote about teaching Kohli the signature step to his upcoming movie Pathaan’s title song.

“I spent a lot of time with him, I just love him. We say that he is our son-in-law, he is our fraternity’s ‘Daamad’. I have known him the most compared to other players. I have known Virat and Anushka for a long time, spent a lot of time with them. I know him since his dating period was going on and I was shooting the film with Anushka. So, he spent many days with us, and became very friendly,” Khan told Star Sports.

“I taught him the Pathan movie title song dance steps. I saw him in one of the India matches, he tried to do the dance with Ravindra Jadeja in the match. They were trying to do that dance step, I was very sad that they are doing it so badly! I told them that let me make you learn the steps so that in the next World Cup and other Championships, whenever you dance at least you will call me and ask how to do the steps,” Khan added.
