Shah Rukh Khan is back to his grand IPL team owner ways, and his fans are loving it! SRK says he will take off his shirt, a la Sourav Ganguly, to show off his six-pack abs if his team, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), reaches the Indian Premier League (IPL) final this year.
"If we reach the final at Chennai, I will take off my shirt, fluff it in the air, and show my six-pack abs… or may be eight-pack abs," Shah Rukh said at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata yesterday (April 17), after KKR won their third straight match with an eight-wicket victory over the Rajasthan Royals.
The final is set to be played at the Chepauk Ground in Chennai.
In 2002, after winning the Natwest Trophy final against England, then Indian captain Sourav Ganguly had celebrated by taking off his shirt and waving it in the air from the Lords balcony.
Ganguly was criticised by the English, but he retorted saying he was doing the same thing English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff did during a series in India.
Ganguly, who has featured in the KKR side in all the past three editions of IPL, was not considered for the team this year.(IANS)
