Chennai: An ecstatic Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan apologised for his misbehaviour with the Mumbai Cricket Association officials at the Wankhede Stadium after a match against Mumbai Indians.
Surrounded by his wife and daughter and other kids, the Bollywood superstar said, “I want to apologise to the kids for my misbehaviour at MCA. I apologise to all who saw me differently. I shouldn’t have behaved in that manner. But today my team has won, so I guess, all you fans should forgive me. We have won at last.”
He praised each and every player. “I am proud of Gautam and the boys. We made a video of families of all our players and saw Manvinder Bisla’s parents speaking about their son. They must be very proud and so am I. I want to tell the people of the Bengal, that now this team belongs to you.”
“I’m happy over the victory of KKR. All the teams played well. In a game, there is victory and defeat. I congratulate KKR team specially for winning the title,” she told PTI.
Shahrukh, co-owner of KKR, is the brand ambassador of West Bengal and the victory of his team has been all the more heartening, she said.
Accompanied by Shahrukh from state secretariat of Writers’ Buildings, she went to the Eden Gardens to watch the first match of KKR against Delhi Daredevils on 5 May.
West Bengal Sports Minister Madan Mitra said that a grand reception will be accorded to the KKR team for winning first ever IPL title.
He said that the victory of Knight Riders over CSK in a thriller is a matter of great celebration by all of us.
“A grand reception will be accorded to the KKR team in Kolkata at the instance of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee,” he said.
