When you talk about Yusuf Pathan the first thing which comes to mind is brutal hitting. Yusuf is one of the most impactful players any team would love to have. He has the ability to take the game away from the opposition in a blink of an eye and is an important member of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. Yusuf hasn’t been in the international reckoning for some time now but given his reputation of clearing the boundary at will, he is still a force to reckon with and one cannot rule out his comeback to national colours in the near future.

Pathan who is an active member on the social networking site took to his Twitter handle and shared a picture of himself sitting on the back of a horse with a Rajput Rajasthani avatar and a sword.  Sharing the picture he wrote, “I love this Rajasthani avatar with turban and sword. #horse #love #animals”.


Having come across his picture Kolkata Knight Riders and Red Chillies Entertainment CEO, Venky Mysore retweeted on his picture and applauded him for his majestic looks. “Looking majestic! KnightRider!!’. Yusuf was quick to get back to Venky and thanked him for his gesture.”

Following the CEO’s tweet, it was the man himself, the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, Shah Rukh Khan who took to his Twitter handle and praised Yusuf for his stunning looks. Shah Rukh went on to add that Yusuf must think of wearing this attire for the coming IPL season. He also mentioned that when Yusuf is batting then the bowlers are the ones who need the helmet and not him.

Yusuf was humbled and responded to King Khan’s tweet. He thanked SRK for his gesture and wished him very best for his upcoming film Raees and said the trailer was fantastic. He also wished SRK and his family a very Happy New Year.
