Shah Rukh unveils Kolkata Knight Riders
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan and former India captain Sourav Ganguly Tuesday unveiled Kolkata Knight Riders, the Kolkata team of the upcoming Indian Premier League.
As the team's theme song "Korbo, Lorbo, Jitbo" (We will do it, fight it and win it) blared and the Bollywood king raised his hands with team captain Sourav Ganguly, coach John Buchanan and actor Juhi Chawla, a glamorous chapter of cricket was written inside ITC Sonar Bangla hotel here.
The black and gold team jersey was also unveiled.
"Black is the colour of goddess Kali (a symbol of Kolkata) and we aim for gold," Shah Rukh Khan said.
The team's owner is Shahrukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment in partnership with Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. Sourav Ganguly is the icon player and will lead the Kolkata franchise.
