Shahrukh Khan brings about Sahara and BCCI truce

For once, the superstar has helped end a fight rather than start one of his own!

Shahrukh Khan has been on the starting end of so many fights – hurting Juhi Chawla by not giving due credit to her brother Bobby for his work on RA.One (or so she claimed), slapping Shirish Kunder, insulting Salman Khan at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party, throwing Aishwarya Rai out of his movie Chalte Chalte – we’ve lost count. And these are just the more recent ones. However, we are sure his latest move will delight not only his fans but those of Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and several other cricketers. The two-week row between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Sahara group was resolved with lots of help from Shahrukh.

You may recall how Sahara had threatened to stop sponsoring the Indian national men’s cricket team if the BCCI did not accede to its demands. Tough negotiations have been going on for the past two weeks, with bigwigs from both sides not willing to budge. That’s when Shahrukh decided to step in and motivated the two sides to look at the larger picture – the future of Indian cricket – and work towards their common goal. He urged them to continue negotiations peacefully instead of walking away for petty reasons. BCCI president N Srinivasan and Union Minister Rajiv Shukla acknowledged the actor’s contribution to the process and have thanked him publicly.

Surprisingly, Shahrukh preferred to remain in the background on this one and refused to comment on the issue when he recently unveiled the new logo of his Indian Premier League team, Kolkata Knight Riders. Instead, the team’s co-owner Juhi Chawla and he smiled and assured everyone they are still friends. We wonder what has brought about this sudden humility in the actor. Maybe he finally looked around, realised he’s quickly losing his friends in the industry and decided to do something about it. Whatever the reason, we are happy to see this side of him.
