					Shahrukh Khan dances at Eden Gardens after
Kolkata Knight Riders victory in IPL 2012




The actor disappointed his admirers when he failed to board the open-top
bus for the victory ride, but more than made up for it with his antics at the
cricket grou


It’s been parties galore for Shahrukh Khan after his team Kolkata Knight

Riders won the Indian Premier League 5 on Sunday night, but that hasn’t

dampened his energy a bit. The actor performed impromptu jigs for a

60,000-odd crowd of fans at Eden Gardens this afternoon (May 29). SRK

was joined by the team’s co-owner Juhi Chawla, KKR captain Gautam
Gambhir, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and other eager

politicians on a makeshift dais to celebrate KKR’s first win. All the players

were gifted gold chains with the inscription ‘Bengal Loves You’, and were

fed cake made with the traditional Bengali sweet, sandesh. Considering the

antics SRK performed when KKR entered the final and immediately after

they won at Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, this was a considerably

mellowed down way to declare his joy. What made us groan was Juhi

touching Mamata’s feet – c’mon, that’s a bit too much!
Shahrukh, with his sheer personality overshadowed the true heroes – the

team members of Kolkata Knight Riders. It’s a good thing actually that he

did not ride in the open-top bus to Eden. The plan was that he and his team

members would ride the victory bus from Hazra to Eden Gardens. More

than fifty thousand people lined the streets hoping to catch a glimpse of

their favourite cricketer and the Bollywood superstar. While Gautam

Gambhir, Laxmi Ratan Shukla and Manoj Tiwari obliged by riding the bus

and acknowledging the crowds, Shahrukh Khan chose not to do so. Maybe

it was too huge a security risk for him to take. Or perhaps he just didn’t

want to brave the Kolkata heat. Whatever the reason may be, we are glad

that at least for a short time the true heroes could enjoy their well-deserved

limelight.
