Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan recently posted a smiling picture of himself, after a request from skipper Dinesh Karthik post-KKR’s win over KXIP.

It was only a few days back when KKR were bundled out on 108 while playing against Mumbai Indians. As a result, KKR fans were disappointed with the recent losses.

However, the Knights came back into their winning ways against Kings XI Punjab by registering a mammoth 245 on the belter of a pitch at Indore.

My Captain @DineshKarthik asked me to smile cos I was so disappointed at the match before. This pic is for him. Thx @Russell12A @prasidh43 @SunilPNarine74 & #KKRTeam. Onwards & up,” captioned Shah Rukh Khan’s recent post on Twitter.
