Superstar Shahrukh Khan, a co-owner of an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, is now going to attend Pro Kabaddi league matches. He confirmed his presence at the tournament in a series of tweets exchanged between him and Ronnie Screwvala, who owns a kabaddi franchise.

When the Don star tweeted about the recent victory of his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders in Hyderabad, Screwvala responded to it by posting: “Congrats SRK - force be with you on this and HNY [Happy New Year] too.”



The actor then requested Screwvala to call him for kabaddi. Screwvala then posted: “July last week - we have a date! Kabaddi Kabaddi Kabaddi.”



Shah Rukh, a sports enthusiast, then said he will be there for his team as well as for actor Abhishek Bachchan, who has bought Jaipur franchise of Pro-Kabaddi, a professional Kabaddi league. “Ronnie Screwvala, I will be there for your team and Abhishek’s team,” replied King Khan, who played the sport in his film Pardes.

Meanwhile, he was ecstatic that his team KKR won an IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. “My mom would be proud of my KKR boys. Love you. Need to kiss you all. Will come to Kolkata and do it. Umesh (Yadav) you are the sweetest. Absolutely deserve the Man of Match title. My daughter and I have kind of gone mad with happiness,” SRK further posted on Twitter.
