There’s a reason Shah Rukh Khan is known as the King! The actor has acquired this title not because of his acting abilities or his lavish lifestyle, but because of the respect and love, he shows for others. Cricketer Dinesh Karthik is one of those who have witnessed Shah Rukh’s ‘king’ side.
Since 2018, Dinesh has been a member of Shah Rukh’s co-owned IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders. The three years have been genuinely fantastic, and he considers himself fortunate to be under King Khan’s protection. When Shah Rukh hired a private jet for him, he recently revealed an untold story.
While speaking with Gaurav Kapur on the podcast ’22 Yarns with Gaurav Kapur’, Dinesh Karthik shared, “There are not many large-hearted people like him (Shah Rukh Khan) in the world right now. And the world needs more people like him. Very genuine, he looks out for you. Whatever happened in my personal life, he flew people over from Chennai to Dubai on a private jet at his own expense for me.”
“They flew me over to Trinidad. He (Shah Rukh) was there for a couple of days. He has a team in CPL called Trinbago Knight Riders. I had a couple of meals with him. I had a Vada pav in the streets of Trinidad. He has a massive fan following in Trinidad. Even there, he had to wear a cap. Even though I had a bad memory, there are some things you can never forget and the time I’ve spent with him it’s fabulous,” Karthik added.
