IPL 2024 final: Did you know? Shah Rukh Khan offered a blank cheque to Gautam Gambhir to join KKR back as a coach?

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) went on to win this year’s TATA IPL title under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer. They won against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Shah Rukh Khan appeared to be the happiest guy on earth when his team, KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders), won the IPL 2024. King Khan exuded confidence and congratulated everyone who contributed to his victory. However, one guy was responsible for the victory: Gautam Gambhir, the Kolkata Knight Riders’ coach. Gautam Gambhir was overjoyed after seeing his team, KKR, celebrate their great victory over Hyderabad.

Did you know Shah Rukh Khan once gave Gautam a blank cheque to coach KKR? Yes, according to rumours, the Jawan actor was highly interested in having Gautam as KKR coach, and as a final resort, he gave him a blank cheque to fill in the amount as he desired.


According to multiple reports, Gautam is the highest-paid coach in the KKR team, earning a whopping Rs 25 crore. Indeed, the man deserves it.

Another video surfaced online showing Shah Rukh Khan kissing mentor Gautam Gambhir on the forehead in a sweet gesture, appreciating the former India opener’s efforts in his maiden season as the Knight Riders’ trainer. Notably, Shreyas Iyer became the second KKR skipper to win the IPL trophy, succeeding Gambhir, as the Knight Riders ended their 10-year wait for the prized title.

Everyone was overjoyed with the victory, but this one video of Shah Rukh and Suhana hugging, and the daughter becoming upset seeing her father so pleased, is the finest thing to watch on the internet today.
