If you think two seasons of poor performance by Kolkata Knight Riders had doused Shahrukh Khan's enthusiasm about the Gentleman's Game, you are wrong. Shahrukh is setting up a cricketing stadium in Dubai. The My Names Is Khan actor who has a huge plot of land in Dubai is planning to develop that into a huge stadium soon. Shahrukh is teaming up with some UAE based real estate developers.
Shahrukh's aim is to provide free coaching and assistance to needy and underprivileged players. Shahrukh who has a huge fan following in Emirates is trying to give back something to the Arab nation. When ready the ground will have all the facilities to host international cricket matches and even other global sporting events.
