Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)’s Mitchell Starc paid back every penny of his Rs 24 crore price after his brilliant three-fer helped KKR thrash LSG by eight wickets at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan who was present at the stadium to cheer up for his team could be seen jumping in joy after KKR’s magical win. Apart from Starc, Sunil Narine, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakravarthy and Andre Russell also proved crucial and played well for KKR.

Phil Salt smashed an incredible 89 not out with 14 fours and three sixes in just 47 balls to complete KKR’s run chase with 26 balls to spare. As per the ritual, SRK went around the stadium and cheered up all the players.

Not only KKR players, King Khan was seen hugging and cheering up players of the opposite team. He went up to LSG captain KL Rahul and gave him a tight hug. The Jawan actor also waved at the spectators, blew flying kisses and showcased his mandatory signature pose.

Several photos and videos from the match have found their way to social media with fans going gaga over SRK’s charisma and style. Dressed in a violet t-shirt and black cargo pants, SRK looked dashing as always.

He was also accompanied by his son Abraham, daughter Suhana Khan, and her best friend Ananya Panday.
