Shah Rukh Khan thinks his team has to listen to bad things because of him

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is often referred to as the King of Bollywood, co-owned the Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Though Khan’s team won the IPL-5 trophy, the actor thinks due to him his team received much flak.

Khan, now 46, remained under a lot of discussion during the IPL season. He was first caught for smoking in the public and later on he got into an ugly brawl with the MCA officials at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

However, the star, who has been banned from entering the Wankhede Stadium, says that the controversies have not been able to stop him from celebrating his team’s success.

He told Rediff Cricket,” It is also wrong that I am participating in the press conference without my team members, but somewhere I feel that because of me my team has to listen to bad things as well as good things; but both are in extremes.”

“Since I am from films, I felt for the team personally; there are other teams that lose too, but my team gets the flak mostly because of me. Young boys who have come from small towns just to play have to listen to things because of me,” he said.

In the meantime, the actor expressed his happiness as he thinks his IPL franchise has played a good part in the development of the players. He said that many players are now going to play at a good level and this thing really makes him happy.

“I am thrilled that L Balaji has been resurgent, I am happy that Manvinder Bisla is a known person now, Manoj Tiwary will get a chance in national cricket,” Shahrukh said.

“I keep following their progress; they are young guys who started with us when they were just 19, and some even fewer than 18, now they will also be positive,” he concluded.
