Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan waved and showered flying kisses to fans off the pitch as his team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) battled it out against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Eden Gardens here on Wednesday. The Kolkata Knight Riders owner was seen very much involved in the game throughout.
Nearly halfway through KKR’s innings, Shahrukh Khan, who wore a white T-shirt and sporting a beard, was first flashed on the giant screen having a balloon fight with son AbRam.
He later realized the loud Eden cheers were for him and the bollywood actor acknowledged the love by standing up and waving. The superstar then took his son AbRam on his lap and playfully hit him on the head with the KKR balloon.
Earlier in the day, Khan had tweeted about his arrival which was also his first ‘home match’ this season.
“Practising our dance moves lil AbRam and me as we prep for our first match in Kolkata. Ami Kolkata here we come… see you all at the Garden,” SRK posted on Twitter.
SRK would have been mighty pleased with the result of the match as his side, the Kolkata Knight Riders, edged past the Kings XI Punjab in a thrilling and engaging encounter. Kolkata Knight Riders have now moved to the top of the points table with 12 points in 9 matches. Kolkata will play their next game against the Gujarat Lions on Sunday at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The crowd will obviously wish that the father-son duo of SRK and AbRam grace the ground again.
