KKR Co-owner Shah Rukh Khan Discusses The Team’s Win, Brand SRK And Controversies
K Shriniwas Rao | TNN (THE TIMES OF INDIA; June 1, 2012)
IPL champions…. How does it sound? Whenever I have thought of winning the IPL, I kept telling myself I’ll fight for it, I deserve it, and everyone believes in me, I can do it. But when my team actually won it, I realised – of course, in a very beautiful way – there was just a feeling of emptiness. I think this victory has been a great lesson in life. When you believe in something and you get it, it becomes all the more bigger.
Is it a personal triumph? Yes, winning the IPL had become a personal thing for me. I used to read, watch on television, what is being written and said about me. Sometimes it was personal. They said Shah Rukh doesn’t know how to run a team, he is going through a mid-life crisis. There were insinuations that me and Jay (Mehta) were interfering too much, getting into the cricketing side. Some things I read weren’t nice. Some politician came out the other day and said Bollywood should not be allowed in IPL. My question is if Bollywood can be allowed in the parliament, why not IPL? What kind of logic is that?
According to people IPL is about parties, drugs, Bollywood! Not sport? Isn’t sport a good thing? People have a few beers after a match and it becomes a controversy. That day after the final, some channel reported that champagne was being opened. I wasn’t there but I was just hoping they don’t make another More >

Surrounded by his wife and daughter and other kids, the Bollywood superstar said, “I want to apologise to the kids for my misbehaviour at MCA. I apologise to all who saw me differently. I shouldn’t have behaved in that manner. But today my team has won, so I guess, all you fans should forgive me. We have won at last.”

He praised each and every player. “I am proud of Gautam and the boys. We made a video of families of all our players and saw Manvinder Bisla’s parents speaking about their son. They must be very proud and so am I. I want to tell the people of the Bengal, that now this team belongs to you.”
He added, “This is something the youngsters should believe in – resilience, patience, perseverance – if you believe, you can win.”
Shah Rukh joy at winning the title was evident as the superstar repeated his post-match peformance from the play-offs and did a couple of cartwheels for the cheering fans.

Mumbai: Playing of popular Bollywood songs to celebrate boundaries and sixes at Wankhede during the World Cup 2011 may have enthralled cricket fans, but this practice has now landed the event’s organizers in trouble. Novex Communications, Yash Raj Films’s authorized agency which issues licences for use of film songs and promos at public events, has issued notices to International Cricket Council (ICC), Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) for alleged ‘infringement of copyright’ and has demanded a fine of Rs 25 lakh against the “damage” caused. The agency has also registered a complaint with the Marine Drive police, seeking civil or criminal procedure against those involved in the alleged breach of law.
“We have received the complaint and are making an inquiry into the matter,” Zunjarrao Gharal, senior inspector at the Marine Drive police station, said.
BCCI chief Ratnakar Shetty refused to comment on the matter, saying permissions were taken in most of the cases. MCA’s Lalchand Rajput said his organization had no role to play as ICC was the event organizer.
In its notice to ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat on March 26, Novex had requested him to stop the playing of copyrighted content without permission. “We have been authorized by Yash Raj Films Pvt Ltd to grant public performance licences. The violations are cognizable and nonbailable offences,” said More >
