Didn't cheat Akhtar over IPL wages: SRK

Mumbai: IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan says he has no clue about the allegations levelled against him by retired Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar, who has claimed that he should never have listened to the Bollywood star while joining the Indian Premier League.

Shoaib, in his autobiography 'Controversially Yours', has claimed that he was betrayed by the then IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi as he made him agree to joining KKR for money which was less than what he was offered in the now-defunct ICL.

The pacer goes on to say that he should not have taken the advice offered by Shah Rukh on the matter.

Reacting to this, Shah Rukh pleaded ignorance on the matter.

"I don't know all this. I did not cheat anyone," said the actor.

In his book, Akhtar has said, "Shah Rukh and I talked about my not being happy with the money settled on me. Shah Rukh and Modi got me to agree. I should have never listened to Modi and Shah Rukh."
