Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik turned 33 on Friday and he was wished by Bollywood star and IPL side’s co-owner Shah Rukh Khan on the special day. SRK wrote a tweet on his official Twitter handle that read, “Wishing my Captain @DineshKarthik the happiest of Birthday. Not because it is customary to do so, but because nobody else deserves it more. We have such Few Good Men left…so need to celebrate them. Love u man. Be healthy & happy.”

Karthik was roped in the KKR side in this edition of the Indian Premier League and was later handed over the captaincy duties. The wicket-keeper batsman did have a good campaign with KKR as he led the side to the playoffs before losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2. KKR released Gautam Gambhir who had led them to two IPL titles. Gambhir eventually went to Delhi Daredevils.
