On the occasion of the launch of a new fan anthem, SRK sat down with 10 of the cricketers in a Facebook live session. At the end of the session, the new song ‘Laphao’ was released officially.

During the chat, Shah Rukh Khan engaged all the players and asked how each member was feeling. When it was batsman Rahul Tripathi’s turn, the ‘Bollywood Badshah’ asked him how he was liking it being part of the Kolkata IPL squad. To this the 29-year-old said that he was happy as it has been a dream of his from childhood to play for KKR.

He then spoke of the excellent 158 runs knock played by Brendon Mccullum off just 73 balls in the inaugural match of the 2008 season of IPL. “From my childhood, it was my dream to play for KKR. The way Brendon McCullum scored his 158 runs and you (Shah Rukh Khan) waving from the stands so it was something very special,” he said.

Shah Rukh, who is known to be quite witty and quick with comebacks, said, “You still have to score 158 runs, Rahul, I am still waving like that, you are not scoring like that yet”.
