Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is basking in the glory of his team Kolkata Knight Riders victory in IPL 7, has begun reading books on Gautam Buddha’s life to help him stay calm.

The 48-year-old actor has been busy shooting Farah Khan’s next ‘Happy New Year’ besides cheering his team in UAE and India throughout this IPL season. “Got a set of books on the life of Gautam Buddha. Excited to start reading them so that I can calm down a bit,” Shah Rukh posted.

The ‘Chennai Express’ star joined his team at Eden Gardens in Kolkata last night to celebrate their IPL victory along with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and a host of Bengali stars.

“Overwhelmed at how much love I receive. Makes me want to give my all in the service of making people smile. Hope I have enough to give for long,’ he posted.

    BJP & Modi won. Mr.Khan it's time for you to act on leaving India with blessings from Buddha. Don't you think that how easy to say anything but it's very hard to follow through acts?

    SRK has to be careful..he already earned ire of Islamists with his Ganesha statue in his house...not him turning to Gautam Budha might lead to fatwa against him....even Mamta Banerjee might not be happy with it.

    It is high time that SRK gives up Wahbism and return to the wisdoms from Bharatvarsh.

    Even Shahrukh turns to Lord Buddha for Peace. I guess the book of "religion of Peace" has nothing to offer on peace
