Shah Rukh Khan said that he is “extremely happy” that his kids enjoy the matches and understand the value of losing and winning. “I want my children to enjoy sports… this game and I love IPL. It’s very personal to me so I feel extremely happy that my kids come and understand the value of losing and winning. Tonight (Wednesday) was winning…it had to be… all there were here. You can’t come with three kids and let them down. Tonight is important because after a long time I am together with them. I will come for all the matches.” .

The Badshah was over the moon on this victory by his team. Shah Rukh Khan further added that,”I would honestly like to take the whole responsibility for it but I would be lying. I stand by them. There is Gautam and the rest of the boys and Venky sir and Jai bhai. They spend so much time that they have completely made sure that I am now just the packaging of the team and when I become boring… I bring my children to the game. I just come and cheer. I am the cheerleader of the losing team and now we have three cheerleaders.”

Shah Rukh Khan had earlier tweeted King Khan took to Twitter earlier in the day about his trip to Kolkata with his kids.

Shah Rukh Khan thanked the city of joy and said, “The fact that I have got my under two year old son here is to introduce him to the maximum love I have got anywhere in the world while failing repeatedly and I want him to know the people that love you, love you unconditionally, so I thank Kolkata for unconditional love.”
