EXCLUSIVE: Shah Rukh Khan's Blog For All KKR Fans

Archived Topic
The beginning of a new day!

When the season started, I thought I would write every couple of days to all our fans that visit our site.

Firstly, thanks for doing so and a special thanks to all who believe in the Knight Riders and support us as a team. Apologies for not being a regular at my blog or actually not even writing the first entry with the start of the season. So here is the first one.

I thought I would start the first write up by detailing the threshold and culture of this franchise.
That would have been apt if we hadn't started playing. Right now, as I write at 5 a.m. in Cape Town, having lost yet another game, which we could have won, the heart is heavy and the mind is numb. Full marks to Rajasthan Royals for proving that a true champion team does not choke at the finish line. Congratulations guys.

Since the commenceme
nt of this season, we have a trail of one win out of three, which is not a good position to be in. So at this time I will not get into why the f…

SRK cast his votes amid media glare

Shahrukh Khan, who flew from South Africa to cast his vote, arrived late in a Bandra polling station and was mobbed by the waiting media. "Being an actor and perhaps as someone people like to follow or listen to if I don't vote, everything that I endorse and all the jobs that I do, become irrelevant. Because the first endorsement I should give is for the electoral process," Shahrukh said.

Is SRK in need of CHAK DE magic?

He may have lead his team from defeat to victory in his hit film Chak De, but it seems in real life the Chak De magic isn't working for SRK. After his return from South Africa, an upset SRK made clear he won't cheer for the team till they post a victory in the on-going IPL tournament.

SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was touted as the team to watch out for. But, sadly, KKR is on a losing spree much to the chagrin of King Khan. Now, with the morale of the team at an all time low, we hope the Kabir Khan in SRK finally takes over and to save his team from being completely whitewashed.

Will Shah Rukh Khan dump KKR?

Mumbai, April 30, 2009: Will Shah Rukh Khan dump Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)? The question is being asked after an emotionally dejected Shah Rukh Khan returned from South Africa and said that he wouldn't return till his team starts winning the match.

His team has been among the worst performers in the ongoing Indian Premier League so far. It has won only one match and has lost four matches one after the other.

The team that was being seen as among the most balanced teams till a few weeks ago is now seen as the weakest among the IPL teams with no batsman or bowler producing match winning performances.

Brendon McCullum, the wily batsman who was made the captain of the side this year after Sourav Ganhuly was removed has also failed to come up with a scintillating performance like last year. He has either gone for a duck or has scored one or two runs in every match.

McCullum believes that a defeat like the one that Kolkata Knight Riders suffered at the hands of Rajasthan Royals in the …

But what is unknown is that his screen persona Rizvan Khan holds on to black stones in many scenes in Karan Johar's film.It is learnt that this is part of the actor's styling. Says a source, "Along with a distinct look, the director has given SRK's character a sort of a security blanket he holds tightly in his palm."Adds the source, "Karan has added the stones as part of the styling. It's obvious that having black stones in his hands is this desire to clutch on to somethingand not let go. It is sacred to him."

Is SRK ditching Kolkata Knight Riders?

Shah Rukh Khan is depressed, unhappy and extremely dissatisfied with the performance of his team Kolkata Knight Riders. After returning to India, he confessed that his team's defeat has bogged him down a lot.

Sending a very strong message to his team he said he will not return to South Africa unless the team performs better in forthcoming matches and learns from its mistakes.

Farhan to replace SRK with Aamir

Aamir Khan and Farhan Akhtar had a fall-out over Aamirs unreasonable demands for Reema Kagtis film. Now Shah Rukh Khan may replacehim

Shah Rukh Khan is slated to replace Aamir Khan in Reema Kagtis next. Reportedly, Aamir Khan had a fall-out with his friends Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani over terms for their next film. Aamir, apparently, demanded a whopping fee and a sizeable percentage in the profits.

Our source said, Ritesh had gone to meet Aamir on the sets of 3 Idiots to finalise the deal, however, they had a major disagreement over certain terms and conditions laid by Aamir. A disgruntled Ritesh left the sets in a huff.

The source added, It was sad as Farhan, Ritesh and Aamir were like family. They made a cult film like Dil Chahta Hai. Although Aamir has not worked with them again, they have always been in touch. Whether the dispute over this film will also affect their personal relationship, is yet to be seen.
Ritesh Sidhwani confirmed the story and said, Yes it i…

Keep the Faith

You must have heard a thousand times that the way to victory does not lie in how hard you can hit; but how hard you can take the hit. And I am not telling you anything new. Every teacher says that to his student, every coach says that to his team and I am sure John has said this to you guys enough times already, just as a father says that to his son.

When they all say this, in their hearts they also wish and hope that their team does not get hit; it doesn't have to learn to win that way. A father feels, let my son win without ever getting hit; but you still say this to them because you know this world is a hard place. Games are a hard battlefiel
d…your opponent wants to win as much as you do…so there is always going to be a chance that you will get hit. The best of us get hit…Mohammad Ali got hit…Carl Lewis got hit…John Buchanan must have been hit…Sourav Ganguly here has been hit several times.

So lets start from the fact that yes we have been hit already. So this is a good thing. A…

Karan casts Kajol, Kareena for next film

Karan Johar is on a nostalgia trip - the nostalgia for success. In an attempt to recreate the success of his blockbuster Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Karan has cast Kajol and Kareena together for his next venture after My Name is Khan.

Reports say that Kajol and Kareena, who played sisters in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, have been finalised by Karan Johar, and will start shooting for the film once their current projects are over.

The film, which is yet untitled, will be directed by first time director Siddharth Malhotra, who produced the popular TV show Sanjivani.

Reports also say that the film will be based on the hit Hollywood movie Stepmom that starred Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts.

What isn't clear is who will be the leading man in the film, and how closely Karan has adopted Stepmom. Will SRK play the lead as he usually does in KJo films?

This report proves that the alleged tiff between Kajol and Karan Johar regarding shooting in New York for MY Name is Khan has been resolved. The iss…

SRK gets boxing ring custom-made for his son Aryan

There is now a boxing ring at Shah Rukh Khan's home, Mannat. No, he isn't practising boxing for a film or preparing for a match with arch rival Aamir Khan.

King Khan, who is into all kinds of sports activities, had a boxing ring especially constructed for his 12-year-old son, Aryan.



The boxing ring at the Khan abode has been made by the 144-year-old sports shop Wagle & Co at Dhobi Talao near Metro cinema. Owner Manohar Wagle says, "We have constructed a children's boxing ring on the play floor in Mannat. It was challenging because we have never done something like this for an individual before. We are used to constructing for schools and clubs. The space was smaller. We had to reduce the dimensions and the height of the ring at Mannat but I think we did a good job."





Wagle says that Shah Rukh's people contacted him and they had specific instructions of their requirement, "Actually Aryan wanted a WWF wrestling ring where the ropes are more flexible but at…

FakeIPLPLayer: Suspects Chopra, Bangar to go

Cape Town, April 27: Suspecting them behind the popular and controversial blog, FakeIPLplayer, the Kolkata Knight Riders management has asked Sanjay Bangar and Akash Chopra to leave for home. Chopra has played two and Bangar one match so far.

Shahrukh: I feel like crying when they lose
