Shah Rukh Khan and his love for sports

Shah Rukh Khan and his love for sportsDespite his recent spat and the controversy that followed, Shah Rukh Khan was quite a sport as he dropped in at the stadium on Saturday to cheer for his team. 
The crowd went berserk when King Khan, looking dapper in a black tee, denims and his white-rimmed glasses, arrived shortly after the match began. He sat along with daughter Suhana, his lucky charm. Her charm worked again and Team Kolkata won the match. Adding to the glamour quotient was Akshay Kumar. Though Akshay was cheering for Team Pune and was dressed in the team’s jersey, he and SRK met warmly with a hug. They also sat together through the match and kept up the jokes, laughs and friendly banter. Shah Rukh also signed autographs and interacted with little kids who were only too excited to see him.

Before heading to the stadium, SRK checked into the Pune Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre, rather discreetly. The fans who had gathered at the hotel since noon didn’t even know when the actor came in and left. We spotted him leaving the hotel after a quick meal at around 8.30 pm. We heard that there were strict instructions from the actor that there were to be no interactions, interviews or photographs. But post the match, after Team Kolkata’s win, the cricketers and SRK partied at the hotel at a do hosted by industrialist Rajiv Bajaj. Naturally, SRK, who was in good spirits, stole the spotlight. He waved out to fans, met a lot of them – the women especially took turns hugging the actor and he politely obliged – and even posed for a lot of pix.
