‘Shahrukh is a down-to-earth guy. Ex-PAK captain recalls IPL 2008: ‘He was lying down on a kit bag, chatting with players.’

In 2008, the M Chinnaswamy Stadium hosted a never-before-seen T20 league, with Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore pitted against each other. After fourteen years, the tournament has established itself as the world’s most profitable league. Since its inception, the lucrative T20 competition has seen a slew of well-known names retire and a slew of lesser-known names make waves.

The IPL featured 11 Pakistan players in its inaugural season, but they were barred from participating in 2009 due to political tensions. Salman Butt, a former Pakistan captain who played for the Kolkata Knight Riders, was one of the players from the neighbouring country.

Butt recalls his time with the Kolkata franchise and its owner Shahrukh Khan vividly, despite the fact that he only played seven games and scored a fifty. Butt recalled the Bollywood star lying on a kitbag in the locker room while the players relaxed on a sofa.

“All of the players received the Knight Riders helmet from Shahrukh Khan. It was a difficult one. Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla were among the owners present. They combined two of the world’s most popular industries, cricket and Bollywood “On Cricket Den’s YouTube channel, Butt said.

Apart from Butt, the KKR dugout included Shoaib Akhtar, Umar Gul, and Mohammad Hafeez. “Because everything was under one roof, the launch was a huge success.” For us, it was a unique experience, and I recall meeting Shahrukh Khan in the dressing room. While the rest of the team sat on a sofa, chatting with the players, he was lying down on a kit bag.

“He’s laid-back and easygoing, and he looks after the players. There was nothing quite like having a boss “He went on to say that

The former Pakistan batsman also talked about how Shahrukh inspired the team after they lost their first few games. Butt claims that the actor gets along with everyone and has a down-to-earth demeanour.

Twinkle Khanna shares a video of kids’ room makeovers and advises storing the iPad with books

On Instagram, Twinkle Khanna posted a video of a children’s bedroom makeover. In the entire video, which was first posted by Tweak India, Twinkle can be seen independently redecorating a child’s room. The actor-turned-writer is married to actor Akshay Kumar, and the two of them have two kids: a son named Aarav and a daughter named Nitara.

Twinkle Khanna discussed the difficulties involved in designing a child’s room in a brand-new video posted on Tweak India’s YouTube channel. “They’ll be obsessed with BTS (a K-pop group),” predicts Twinkle, “one day they’ll be singing Baby Shark 6000 times a day until you want to stitch your ears shut.”

She said that since children frequently bump into things, a large amount of space is required in their bedrooms. Twinkle continued, “I like to add bright colours, but as they get older, I switch to muted tones.”

Twinkle also advised her followers to hide their children’s iPads and replace them with books in the video. She also made a play area in a corner of the room where the kids can play instruments, draw, or engage in other activities that interest them. Twinkle advised parents to use gender-neutral colours in their children’s bedrooms at the conclusion of the video.

Loved this segment, said one fan. The colour scheme and overall design are very nice, even though I’m not sure the kids would keep the room tidy. I adore how Twinkle speaks like a regular person rather than a famous person. I doubt the kids will keep their room this tidy, another person remarked. “Loved the idea of replacing the iPad with books,” one person said.

Twinkle made her acting debut in 1995 with Barsaat, and she gave up acting after the release of Love Ke Liya Kuch Bhi Karega in 2001. She has frequently stated that she did not enjoy her time in movies, and in a Koffee With Karan episode, she even acknowledged, “I was a terrible actress.”

She made her writing debut in 2015 with Mrs. Funnybones. She then followed it up with the fiction book Pyjamas Are Forgiving and the anthology of short stories The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, both of which were published in 2017.
