“The IPL matches usually happen between 8 to 11 pm, so it can affect a film if it is an important match,” Shahrukh told reporters here at an event.
Shahrukh is co-owner of an IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders and also owns a production house, Red Chillies Entertainment.
“I will think about it if I am a producer. I will think twice specially during the middle of the tournament or at the end,” he said.
The fifth season of IPL begins from April 4 and ends on May 27.
In the first three seasons of IPL, Shahrukh's team Kolkata Knight Riders had performed poorly, while in its fourth season, KKR had reached the fourth spot.
