Shah Rukh Khan to miss 2014 FIFA World Cup finals – find out why!

Ever since FIFA World Cup kicked off, SRK has been closely following the game despite his hectic shooting schedule. In fact, the superstar was all set to watch the finals live in Brazil but now we hear he won’t. Read on to know why…

We all know Shah Rukh Khan is a die-hard football fan. Well, he doesn’t own a soccer team but he sure knows the game inside out. No wonder, the Happy New Year actor booked the tickets for FIFA World Cup finals four years back itself. Yes, you heard that right and it does say a lot about Khan’s love for football, hai na? But sadly Shah Rukh will miss the finals and won’t be able to enjoy the match live in Brazil coz of his work. While talking to a leading daily, Gauri Khan’s hubby dearest said, “I was supposed to go. I had booked the tickets four years ago, but I can’t. I have to finish the work of my film because it is due for release in October. (There are) Lots of VFX (special effects) and small bits and pieces left, so we are shooting every day. There are six actors in the film, so I make myself available too. I’ll be shooting during the finals, but we would have big screens put up where we are shooting.”

It’s sad that King Khan won’t be going to Brazil to watch the finals live but we are maha impressed with his dedication. The talented actor is indeed a thorough professional, no?
