Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who owns an IPL team and also a production house, is not much in favour of releasing new films during the IPL season.

"The IPL matches usually happen between 8 to 11 pm, so it can affect a film if it is an important match," Shah Rukh told reporters here at an event.

Shah Rukh is co-owner of an IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders and also owns a production house, Red Chillies Entertainment.

"I will think about it if I am a producer. I will think twice specially during the middle of the tournament or at the end," he said.

The fifth season of IPL begins from April 4 and ends on May 27.

In the first three seasons of IPL, Shah Rukh`s team Kolkata Knight Riders had performed poorly, while in its fourth season, KKR had reached the fourth spot.
