Shahrukh Khan motivates Kolkata Knight Riders to victory!

Here’s what the King Khan could have said to his team members before their scintillating performance in IPL 5

Shahrukh Khan’s faith in his team Kolkata Knight Riders was vindicated when they won the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League last night (May 27). KKR’s performance has got everyone talking about another team that Shahrukh inspired to victory. Albeit on the big screen. Remember his famous ‘Sattar minute’ speech? We wonder how it might have been if, worried about the huge total Chennai Super Kings had put on the board, SRK had decided to motivate his players at half time with that speech. Hey, if it can work in reel life, why can’t it work in real life? Of course, with Jacques Kallis and Brett Lee on the team, he couldn’t very well stick to Hindi! And KKR had considerably longer than 70 minutes to clinch victory. Here’s our take, which we call ‘Bees over’ (20 overs) speech. Read at your own risk. It may very well be the reason Gautam Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan laughed themselves out for for two and one runs respectively:

Sattar minute…err… bees over hain tumhare paas. Shayad yeh tumhare zindagi ke sab se khaas bees over hain. Aaj tum achcha khelo ya bura, yeh bees over tumhe zindagi bhar yaad rahenge. kaise khelna hai.. aaj main tumhe nahin bataoonga. Bas itna kahoonga, ki jaao aur yeh bees over jee bhar kar khelo, kyonki iske baad aane wali zindagi chahe kuch sahi ho ya na ho, chahe kuch rahe ya na rahe, tum haaro ya jeeto, lekin ye bees over tumse koi nahin chheen sakta. Koi nahin. Is match ko kaise khelna hai, aaj main tumhe nahin bataoonga, tum mujhe bataoge. Khelkar. Kyunki main jaanta hoon ki agar yeh bees over is team ka har player apne zindagi ki sabse badiya cricket khele, to yeh bees over khuda bhi tumse vaapas nahin maang sakta. Jao. Jao aur apne aap se, is zindagi se, apne khuda se, aur har us insaan se jisne tumpar bharosa nahin kiya, apne bees over chheeno.

Seventy minutes…err… twenty overs are there near you. Maybe these your life’s most important twenty overs are. Today you good play or bad, these twenty overs your life full will remember. How to play… today I won’t tell you. Enough this much I will tell, that go, and these twenty overs with life full play, because after this the life to come whether something right happens or no, whether something remains or no, you lose or win, but these twenty overs from you nobody can grab. No body. This match how to play, today I won’t tell you, you will tell me. By playing. Because I know that if these twenty overs this team’s every player their life’s best cricket play, then these twenty overs even God from you can’t ask back. Go. Go and from yourself, from this life, from your God, and from every person who in you did not believe, your twenty overs you grab.
