Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and the owner of the popular IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) found himself in the middle of a controversy after a few eagle-eyed fans allegedly spotted him smoking during the IPL 2024 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Several pictures and videos going viral on social media argue that ‘Jawaan’ actor was reportedly smoking inside the VIP box of Eden Gardens. The video of King Khan allegedly smoking has triggered outrage as many fans criticised him for his conduct during the game. However, SRK and his team are yet to comment on the issue.

Before the match, the superstar received a rousing welcome from his fans in Kolkata when he arrived at Eden Gardens to support his team. Dressed in a white T-shirt and denim jeans with his hair up in a man-bun, King Khan looked dashing as always and happily waved at his fans and sent flying kisses.

After the match, SRK also posed for a picture with the ground staff at Eden Gardens. He also met all the players and hugged them all before going around the stadium and waving at his fans.

Talking about the match, a superb all-round performance by Andre Russell and brilliant bowling by Harshit Rana helped KKR snatch a narrow four-run victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
