Shahrukh Khan dances at Eden Gardens for Kolkata Knight Riders fans

The actor disappointed his admirers when he failed to board the open-top bus for the victory ride, but more than made up for it with his antics at the cricket ground

It’s been parties galore for Shahrukh Khan after his team Kolkata Knight Riders won the Indian Premier League 5 on Sunday night, but that hasn’t dampened his energy a bit. The actor performed impromptu jigs for a 60,000-odd crowd of fans at Eden Gardens this afternoon (May 29). SRK was joined by the team’s co-owner Juhi Chawla, KKR captain Gautam Gambhir, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and other eager politicians on a makeshift dais to celebrate KKR’s first win. All the players were gifted gold chains with the inscription ‘Bengal Loves You’, and were fed cake made with the traditional Bengali sweet, sandesh. Considering the antics SRK performed when KKR entered the final and immediately after they won at Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, this was a considerably mellowed down way to declare his joy. What made us groan was Juhi touching Mamata’s feet – c’mon, that’s a bit too much!

Shahrukh, with his sheer personality overshadowed the true heroes – the team members of Kolkata Knight Riders. It’s a good thing actually that he did not ride in the open-top bus to Eden. The plan was that he and his team members would ride the victory bus from Hazra to Eden Gardens. More than fifty thousand people lined the streets hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite cricketer and the Bollywood superstar. While Gautam Gambhir, Laxmi Ratan Shukla and Manoj Tiwari obliged by riding the bus and acknowledging the crowds, Shahrukh Khan chose not to do so. Maybe it was too huge a security risk for him to take. Or perhaps he just didn’t want to brave the Kolkata heat. Whatever the reason may be, we are glad that at least for a short time the true heroes could enjoy their well-deserved limelight.
