It is that time of the year when fans of Bollywood’s Badshah Shah Rukh Khan see him cheering for his Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders either from the stands or from the cricket ground.
Wednesday evening was a double delight for the supporters of KKR at Eden Gardens as SRK first cheered for the team from the stands and later celebrated the win of his team over Kings XI Punjab by doing his iconic pose on the ground. The actor received a loud cheer from the spectators as he came to the ground after KKR defeated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 28 runs.
