Members of the Kolkata Knight Riders cricket team on Monday extended good wishes to their franchise owner, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, on his 55th birthday.
In a video uploaded on KKR’s social media handles, KKR players shared memories of their first meeting with Shah Rukh, favourite SRK dance moves and also their wishes for the iconic actor.
“I remember once going to Bali and there were just two things which the auto driver told us — So, you are from India, Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Veer-Zaara. That’s how famous he is,” said wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik. “It was a special moment. He (SRK) was so humble and cool. He was standing beside me and gave me a hug. I am a tough guy but I was blushing,” said Andre Russell while recalling his first meeting with him. “Everybody described him as the Tom Cruise of India. He is actually more exciting than Tom Cruise,” said KKR captain Eoin Morgan. — IANS
