Bollywood actor and the owner of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders, Shah Rukh Khan has apologized to the captain of the Indian Women’s team Mithali Raj. It was earlier reported that Shah Rukh will make a comeback in television with his talk show- Ted Talks India. The actor yesterday shot for an episode of the show which featured director Karan Johar and Indian cricketer Mithali Raj.

Shah Rukh was late for the shoot

However, a report states that both Karan and Shah Rukh were running late which led to a delay in the shoot by almost 3-4 hours, which means the skipper was kept waiting for long. But the ‘King Khan’ of Bollywood has made up for the lost hours it seems, by apologising to Mithali. A source told a leading daily that SRK made it a point to meet Mithali before the shoot and apologised for the delay.

“He met Mithali and informed her about the reason for coming late. He also helped her prep for her speech that she was going to deliver on stage and ensured she was comfortable. Only after that they started the shoot.”

The Indian captain has been in the news for no fault of hers. She was recently trolled on Twitter for posting a picture from an event, with her teammates.

Mithali hits back at a Twitterati

Posting a picture with fellow cricketers Veda Krishnamurthy, Mamatha Maben and Nooshin Al Khadeer. Raj had written: “What a momentous day today was, standing with these special women!! @MabenMaben @AlNooshin @vedakmurthy08”.

They were present there to inaugurate a cricket centre in Bengaluru and everyone applauded the move, until a Twitterati, who uses the handle @ashimdchoudhary stated that she was sweating (at her armpit) while posing for the photo. He wrote “sorry Smt Captain, hahaha odd looking. the fasina wet”. Raj took a shot back to him by tweeting, ” I m where I m because I sweated it out on d field! I see no reason 2 b ashamed of it, when I’m on d ground inaugurating a cricket academy”.
