There has been a lot of negativity about Indian Premiere League (IPL), ever since Lalit Modi's controversy hit the headlines. But superstar Shahrukh Khan, who is one among the owners of the cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders, has blamed the media for this negativity. He has asked the media men to have a perspective of their own.
In an interview with the Times of India, Shahrukh Khan hurled his anger against the media for creating negativity about the IPL. The actor indirectly referred to media and said that it has developed a psyche if India have not played well in Australia, then the media should completely write them off.
Shahrukh Khan added that it is sad that there will be a controversy with the beginning of every new season of IPL series. If there is nothing, the media will create one by reporting wrongly. It always tries to feed off the popular affairs. “I understand media has a job to do, but there should be a perspective too," the TOI quotes SRK as saying.
Shahrukh Khan has bought the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders in partnership with actress Juhi Chawla Mehta and her husband Jay Mehta in 2008. The Baadshah of Bollywood recently launched the new look of his team at a press conference held at a hotel in Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.
