Bollywood and Cricket fraternity go hand-in-hand. Often we hear rumours about B-town stars and cricketers dating each other and so many of them have married each other and paved way for many others. Not just on the personal front, Bollywood and Cricket have a professional association as well, as many B-town celebs have invested in the famous yearly cricket league, named Indian Premier League (IPL). Shilpa Shetty, Priety Zinta, Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh Khan, all have been closely associated with IPL as they have put their stakes in various teams.

Shah Rukh Khan is the co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, along with actress, Juhi Chawla, her husband, Jay Mehta, and Red Chillies Entertainment. As the Coronavirus pandemic has shut down all the businesses, IPL 2020 had also been postponed until further notice so that social distancing can be maintained in a proper manner. Recently, Shah Rukh opened up on Star Sports show, Cricket Connected and revealed how he was going to jump from the balcony after KKR won the IPL for the first time in 2012, and it was his daughter, Suhana Khan, who caught him.
During the interview on Star Sports show, Cricket Connected, Shah Rukh Khan recalled the winning moment and said, "I was just hanging there, waving my arms from my balcony. So, when we won it, it was a vindication of belief because a lot of people started telling me to sell the team, which I never would. And I don’t say that out of evil, I said it out of belief and confidence." He then recalled the incident when he was going to jump from the balcony out of excitement. He added, “Actually, the first match we won, I was going to jump from my balcony, but I think my kids, I think it was my daughter (Suhana) who caught me. I could have flown that night, but I settled at home.”
SRK also revealed how he never gave the epic Chak De! India “70-minute” pep talk to his team, Kolkata Knight Riders before any match. The actor said, “I have been a sportsman all my life at a very small level, so I have never really given them some Chak De! India kind of lectures. I have never done that.” (Recommended Read: Arbaaz Khan's Girlfriend, Giorgia Adriani Ignited Her Inner 'Billu Barber' For Him In Quarantine)
Shah Rukh Khan is really close to his kids and makes sure that he spends ample time with his children and be there for them whenever they need him. On April 20, 2020, Shah Rukh Khan had taken to his Twitter handle and invited his fans for a quick Q&A session, #AskSRK. The fans quickly came up with a lot of questions, some were about his next projects, while some were about his quarantine routine. However, one question, in particular, caught everyone’s attention as it was a marriage proposal from Shah Rukh’s fan, Anurag Sharma for his little son, AbRam Khan. Anurag’s heartfelt tweet could be read as “#AskSRK sir my niece Vedika loves Abram, can she marry him, she's only 1 yrs old last month, would be glad of you could wish her and bless her.” In reply to the sweet proposal, the actor had tweeted a sweet blessing for the baby girl and it could be read as “God bless her. She is very pretty.” Take a look. (Don't Miss: Jay Bhanushali Dances In Front Of His Kids When They Miss Their Playground Amidst The Lockdown)
