It has been widely reported that Shah Rukh during his school days was an avid sports person. He played almost all forms of the sport—hockey and football being his all time favourite. Interestingly, the actor already owns an IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders. The team won this season`s IPL, taking their win tally to two.
According to a report published, the actor had last year expressed his desire to promote a football club in the country. In fact, it`s not just SRK who is a sports enthusiast, but kids Aryan and Suhana too love the sport, reportedly.
With Shah Rukh too glued to his TV set, as FIFA World Cup rolls, the game is surely going to get better!
