Kolkata, April 12 (Calcutta Tube) Sad over his close friend Bobby Chawla’s illness, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan tweeted Sunday that his team Kolkata Knight Riders‘ defeat by Bangalore Royal Challengers added to his woes. The superstar also confessed on the social networking site that he had to seek his children’s support to get over his sadness.
‘Bad day yesterday. friend still not well…had to take hugs from kids & friends to avoid being sad. kkr did little to help either,’ the Bollywood hero tweeted.
‘Have to spend more time with people I love & care for. Feel them around me more. Waste too much time with peripherals of life. Missing the core,’ said Shah Rukh.
Clearly, the passionate owner of the Knights expects his team to provide him succour by winning matches when he is going through troubled times.
Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan has stayed away from the last two IPL games of his team to be beside dear friend and his company Red Chillies Entertainment chief executive officer Bobby Chawla, who is hospitalised after collapsing at a restaurant recently.
The see-saw ride continued for the Knight Riders as they were convincingly beaten yet again by liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s Bangalore Royal Challengers by seven wickets Saturday. This is what makes matters worse for King Khan who bought the franchise along with the husband-wife duo of Juhi Chawla and Jai Mehta. Juhi is Bobby’s sister and Shah Rukh’s close friend.
Shah Rukh’s earlier tweet March 29 led to quite a stir when he wrote after his side’s defeat to Delhi Daredevils in an away game that his franchise should stop giving excuses after facing defeats every time.
