Shahrukh Khan in Indian Premier League - IPL 2009

Though IPL is cricket, no one can deny that king of bollywood, Shahrukh Khan is one of itsmajor attractions . He is the owner of Kolkata Knight riders which was the most profit-gaining team in IPL 2008. Arguably, this was due to Shahrukh's presence in the team.

Though other bollywood stars like Preity Zinta, Juhi Chawla and Shilpa Shetty are owners of different IPL teams, Shahrukh will remain the no.1 bollywood star in IPL. Apart from being shown in Knight Rider's TV ad, he will be seen in the cricket ground in their matches. More than 100,000 fans had arrived to Kolkata last year to see Knight Rider's matches and him in the ground. This time it is in South Africa but his presence in ground will certainly attract more fans in the matches.

Shahrukh Khan and controversies in IPL:

In IPL 2008, Shahrukh was involved in a lot of controversies including his dispute with Sourav Ganguly, also rules of ICC and the one regarding Rabindranath Tagore. In 2009, the multiple captain theory has brought Knight Riders in news before the start of series. Shahrukh was later involved in the controversy after his reactions about Gavaskar's comments on the theory. Later, SRK said he apologized with Gavaskar.

Shahrukh's presence in IPL is certainly beneficial to cricket as it would attract a lot of bollywood fans. Apart from this, one can never deny the fact that his presence will bring a lot of controversies.. It would be interesting to see his relation with captain Sourav Ganguly, the coach and other IPL players in the new season.
