Me and my children have learnt a lot from IPL, Shahrukh
Shahrukh Khan admits he takes ‘Kolkata Knight Riders' defeat personally. KKR could not make to the final but Shahrukh Khan said that IPL has been a learning experience for him and his children.
"I got to learn
a lot (from IPL)...to learn how to lose but not become losers. My children have
also learnt a lot.
"They haven`t learnt that much from my profession. But this completely uncontrolled, unbridled excitement,ups and downs and not knowing what`s happening has taught them to be better people. So I thank IPL," Shah Rukh told a TV channel while promoting his forthcoming release "Chennai Express".
Shahrukh said that he could not make to the final as he was busy shooting for his movie.
"I couldn`t come (to Eden Gardens). I was shooting my
film and am injured too...I wanted to complete the movie.. I had a choice
though. People would have been happy anyway watching the league matches,whether
I am present or absent.
"Or if my film comes out , people will be happy watching it too. I have to balance it out between cricket`s entertainment and film`s entertainment," said Shah Rukh, whose "Chennai Express" comes out on Aug 8.
The Badshah of Bollywood admitted that he feels sad when his team did not play well.
"I missed all the matches.. specially we didn`t make it
to the play offs. We are the defending champions. When my team was not doing
well, I feel really sad. I take it personally in terms of my emotions.. in
terms of my children because I feel their life`s learnings are through this
IPL," he said.
Of the 16 IPL matches, KKR won six and lost 10.
In an interesting final match played between two-time champions, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians Sunday at Eden Gardens, Mumbai Indians lifted the IPL 6 trophy.
