On Thursday, Shah Rukh Khan stole the show as he pleased the crowd when his IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders, defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by an 81-run score. Now, a photo of Shah Rukh Khan expressing his love for RCB player Virat Kohli while they were playing has gone viral on social media.
With his hands on Virat Kohli's cheeks and the two of them laughing on the pitch, Shah Rukh is seen serving love to the cricketer. It was named the "pic of the day" by a fan page. "KKR ne match jeeta or Srk ne dil", a fan wrote on the picture. Since both of them are from Delhi, someone else referred to them as "Delhi ke londay (Delhi guys)". "Kings in one frame" was another comment. One said, “SRK and Virat :- spreading love. There Toxic fans :- spreading hate.”
Shah Rukh viewed the game at Kolkata's Eden Gardens. Suhana Khan, his daughter, and Shanaya Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor's daughter, were also with him. The actor was dressed in black denim, a hoodie, and sunglasses. Shah Rukh was spotted dancing on the balcony while waving and greeting fans at the stadium while listening to Jhoome Jo Pathaan. He was also spotted eating popcorn with his manager Pooja Dadlani and renowned singer Usha Uthup.
Juhi Chawla, KKR co-owner, was also there throughout the game. After the team's victory, she spoke to ANI and expressed her satisfaction with their performance.“I'm very happy with our team's performance. I just hope and pray that all our matches end like this. Every seat at Eden Gardens was occupied. Give the team your best wishes, let's go to the finals this year, let's be champions."
Shah Rukh Khan is now enjoying the success of his smash hit Pathaan, which debuted around Republic Day and went on to become his biggest-grossing film. He will now return in June with his following, Jawan. Sunil Grover and Nayanthara are also featured in the movie.
