Ahead of their crucial encounter against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, Kolkata Knight Riders players met their team's co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan at a five-star hotel in Mumbai.
The KKR squad, which is in Mumbai to face defending champions Mumbai Indians in Match 37 of the Indian Premier League 2018, had a chill out session where they posed for pictures with Shah Rukh at Taj Mahal Palace hotel on Saturday night.
According to the pictures shared by KKR on social media, Shah Rukh was seen with Rinku Singh, Tom Curran, Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Cameron Delport and Vinay Kumar.
The players were thrilled to meet Shah Rukh Khan ahead of the first of their back-to-back games against Mumbai.
KKR are sitting comfortably in the third position and Dinesh Karthik's side will be full of confidence coming into the game after registering a facile victory against the mighty Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens.
For KKR, the batting has looked steady with Karthik scoring 280 runs in nine matches followed by Chris Lynn and Andre Russell, with 260 and 207 runs respectively.
The firepower of Narine at the top and the emergence of youngster Shubhman Gill in the middle order have added teeth to their batting.
