Shahrukh Khan Paying Attention to Sports

After purchasing IPL team, it seems that King Khan, Shahrukh Khan is getting more and more involved with the sports world. When King Khan’s team, ‘ Knight Rider, Kolkata team’ was fighting out for a IPL semifinal spot in the IPL, Shahrukh was not there to cheer them up. Where was he? Any guess…

King Khan was doing a surprise visit to the Sepang Formula One racing track a day before the Malaysian Grand Prix scheduled there. And he was caught up at the paddock with the only Indian driver participating in the F1, Karun Chandhok.

Karun states,

“He spent quite a bit of time with me actually. SRK had a good look at the car and asked me a lot of questions about the technical aspects of the sport. He then sat in my car and wanted to know all about the various buttons and functions of the steering wheel.”

This is not the first time that Karun and Shahurkh were meeting as they have previously met in some functions, but first time they met on racing track. Shahrukh also watched Saturday’s qualifying race from the team garage.
