Former Indian cricketer and captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Gautam Gambhir, recently had a meeting with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. This meeting occurred after the release of Shah Rukh’s latest movie, ‘Jawan,’ which is making waves at the box office. It appears that Gambhir has already watched the action-thriller and shared a photo of himself with SRK on Instagram.
Describing Shah Rukh as the ‘King of Hearts,’ Gambhir expressed that there is much we can learn from the accomplished actor-producer. “He’s not just the king of Bollywood but the king of hearts. Every time we meet I go back with endless love and respect. So much to learn from u. Simply the best.”
Shah Rukh Khan and Gautam Gambhir’s partnership at Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) yielded impressive results, with the IPL team clinching two titles under Gambhir’s leadership in 2012 and 2014. However, Gambhir left KKR before the 2017 season, expressing his desire to return to Delhi Capitals (then Delhi Daredevils) and secure a title for them.
Gautam Gambhir led KKR to two IPL titles
Although Shah Rukh and the KKR management would have preferred him to stay, Gambhir had already made up his mind. Since Gambhir’s departure, KKR, a two-time champion, has not been able to secure another title. Gambhir had brought a winning spirit to the team during his time with KKR. Shah Rukh’s jubilation when KKR won their first title in 2012 was evident as he celebrated passionately with every player. Their close bond is evident in the photo that Gambhir recently shared on social media.
It’s worth noting that Gambhir is known for expressing his opinions boldly, but when it comes to Shah Rukh, he only has praise. In the photo with Shah Rukh, Gambhir, who is not known for smiling often in pictures, wears a broad smile, reflecting his happiness with ‘King Khan.’ Meanwhile, Shah Rukh’s movie “Jawan” is making waves at the box office, nearing the 500 crore rupee mark. The film, directed by Atlee, also features Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara.
