Kolkata: Reports of friction between IPL team KKR owners Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla can safely be put to rest. Once thick friends, Juhi and SRK were rumoured to have developed a strain after they became business partners for Kolkata Knight Riders.
However, all those reports fell flat when KKR team won the IPL this season and SRK went out of his way to acknowledge Juhi’s role in making the team a cohesive unit. The actor is also known to be lending his support in a cause supported by Juhi Chawla.
Juhi Chawla has been working for the awareness of thalassaemia for long and after team won at the IPL, the actress visited children suffering from the blood disorder at The Thalassaemia Society of India in North Kolkata. What’s good to see was SRK too joining her to contribute his bit.
SRK talked, joked, and comforted the little kids who were extremely excited to see their hero in real life. Apparently, Juhi had been supporting them since IPL1 contributing Rs 10,000 for every KKR victory.
