Shah Rukh Khan, often hailed as the ‘King of Bollywood,’ is a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the screen. Beyond his illustrious acting career, his passion for cricket shines through his ownership of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, showcasing a genuine love for the sport. Interestingly, amidst his vast array of roles, there was once a desire to step into the shoes of cricketing icon Virat Kohli on-screen, highlighting his boundless versatility. With a friendship forged with Anushka Sharma since their collaboration in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan,’ Shahrukh’s presence in the cricketing world makes this revelation even more interesting.

During a Times Now interview while promoting his 2017 hit ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal,’ Shah Rukh Khan cheekily revealed his desire to play cricketer Virat Kohli on screen when asked about his dream role. Anushka Sharma, his co-star in the film, playfully interjected, teasing him about needing to grow a beard for the role. SRK, quick with his wit, retorted, claiming he had already sported a beard in the film, resembling Kohli. The banter between the two added a delightful charm to the conversation, showcasing their camaraderie. While a Virat Kohli biography may not be on the cards, SRK’s admiration for the Royal Challengers Bangalore cricketer shines through, endearing fans with his playful humor and infectious enthusiasm.

It would be a sight to behold if Shah Rukh Khan stepped into Virat Kohli’s shoes on the cricket field and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like.
