Indian Premier League (IPL) is the world’s biggest and the most famous T20 league and is watched by billions of fans in different parts of the globe.

Since its inception in 2008, only three franchises have managed to lay their hands on the coveted title more than once and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is one of them, with Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) leading the title race with five and four titles, respectively.

Co-owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and actress Juhi Chawla, KKR have lifted the IPL trophy twice but there have been occasions when the franchise cut a sorry figure and  failed to even qualify for the playoffs.

As owners both SRK and Juhi are passionate about their team and how they perform on the field. Whether they are in the stands or watching the live action on TV, they both follow their team closely and want the players to do well all the time.

Whenever they are in the stadium and their team is performing well, the camera always pans out to them and we get to see them enjoying themselves from the VIP stands. But not many people know how they react when things are going downhill for the franchise. 

Recently, Juhi revealed how she and SRK react whenever KKR is performing poorly in a match. The Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak actress said that she starts praying to all the gods, chants Gayantri Mantra and does everything in her capacity to bring the team good fortune and turn the tide for them.

“Shuru ho jaati hoon bhagwan ko yaad karna, mantra padna. Sabke pair pad leti hoon main, Hanuman ji ko tak nahi chhodti. Gayatri mantra shuru ho jaate hai. Sab karti hoon main (I start praying to every god there is and begin chanting mantras),” said Juhi on the Kapil Sharma Show when asked about how she reacts when the team is having a tough day in the field.

SRK, to Juhi’s surprise, starts scolding her while expressing his dissatisfaction with the players for not diverting from the team’s game plan.

“Idhar se Shah Rukh mujhe daantne lag gaye. ‘Bowling kaise kar raha hai, bowling should be according to the fielding. This is not right. I must call a team meeting.’ Mereko daant rahe hai. Main toh wahaan khadi hoon, mereko pata nahi kya karoon (Shah Rukh starts scolding me about the performance of our players. ‘How is he bowling, bowling should be according to the fielding. This is not right. I must call a team meeting.’ He scolds me. I just stand there, not knowing what to do),” she added.

Meanwhile, KKR came close to winning their third IPL title only to be beaten by MS Dhoni’s CSK at the final hurdle in Dubai. Ahead of the mega auction, the franchise has retained four players Andre Russell, Varun Chakaravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer and Sunil Narine.

They will have to look for a new skipper since they decided to let go of England’s Eoin Morgan who guided them to the IPL final. Having retained their core group of players, the Kolkata-based outfit would look to build their squad around them ahead of a new IPL campaign.
