I don’t have as much money as Shah Rukh: AmitabhMay 22nd, 2009 - 6:03 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) Bollywood megastar Amitbah Bachchan says he couldn’t bid for an Indian Premier League (IPL) team because he doesn’t have “as much money as (Kolkata Knight Riders owner) Shah Rukh Khan”.
“I don’t have as much money as Shah Rukh. He has money and so he owns a team,” Amitabh said on Zee News’ celebrity chat show “Kahiye Janab” to be aired on Saturday.
Amitabh sent a congratulatory SMS to skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his Padma Shri and didn’t get a response. But he says he holds no grudge against the cricket star.
“He must have been busy, there’s no need to make an issue out of this.”
The sexagenarian otherwise makes for an avid viewer of the IPL and says he watches “almost all the matches”.
