Shah Rukh Khan debuts as blogger, writes for IPL teamApril 26th, 2009 - 7:24 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 26 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has joined the celebrity blogger bandwagon and is using it to pour out his feelings for his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The actor’s post came in effect after KKR lost its third match opposite Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty’s co-owned team Rajasthan Royal Thursday in Cape Town, South Africa.
“…as I write at 5 a.m. in Cape Town, having lost yet another game, which we could have won, the heart is heavy and the mind is numb. Full marks to Rajasthan Royals for proving that a true champion team does not choke at the finish line. Congratulations guys,” Shah Rukh posted at KKR’s official website http://www.kkr.in.
“Since the commencement of this season we have a trail of one win out of three, which is not a good position to be in,” he added.
The 43-year-old also confessed his team’s “multiple captaincy” decision that elbowed out Sourav Ganguly as the team’s skipper resulted in a flurry of criticism for Shah Rukh in the form of hate mails from supporters and fans.
“In an attempt to give it (the matches) our best, our team has taken lots of unpopular decisions. Starting with the multiple captains to choices of who we play in which match. A truckload of criticism from all quarters has been dumped at our doorsteps. Every time I go and sit in the stadium, I feel the weight of all the choices made,” confessed the actor.
King Khan, as he if fondly called, also apologised for not being a regular at the new endeavour.
“…apologise for not being a regular at my blog or actually not even writing the first entry with the start of the season… When the season started, I thought I would write every couple of days to all our fans that visit our site,” he wrote.
