Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, attended the team’s April 6 home opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he witnessed an impressive 81-run victory.

Shardul Thakur blasted 68 off of just 29 deliveries, and Rahmanullah Gurbaz hit his first IPL fifty to help Kolkata amass a large total of 204/7. In the second innings, Varun Chakravarthy and Suyash Sharma bowled out Royal Challengers Bangalore for just 123 runs, giving KKR their first IPL 2023 victory. Fans also relished Shah Rukh’s presence in the stadium, which added to the excitement of Kolkata’s victory.
Shah Rukh Khan met and conversed with players from both squads after the game. Shah Rukh also spoke with Gurbaz, after which the latter uploaded a video of the encounter to his Twitter account. Gurbaz disclosed that the Indian actor had communicated with him in Afghan and praised the actor’s personality.
“It was a pleasure to meet Shah Rukh Khan. He was such a pleasant person and could also speak Afghani “On April 8, Rahmanullah Gurbaz tweeted.
