`Making fun: Kolkata Knight Riders' owner Shah Rukh Khan`

`IN THE past, SRK made digs at Amitabh Bachchan's good friend Amar Singh, and more recently at his colleagues during this year's Filmfare awards function. Now, the actor has a new ground to cover –

the Indian Premier League. Naturally, the actor (who owns the Kolkata Knight Riders) is jubilant about his team winning the first ever IPL match against Dr Vijay Mallya's team, Bangalore Royal Challengers.

Now on the website of his team, Shah Rukh has made fun of all his rival teams including that of MS Dhoni, Shane Warne and VVS Laxman who represent Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals and Hyderabad Deccan Chargers respectively. He has also made digs at former Indian captain Krishnamachari Srikanth, who was the highest scorer when India won the World Cup in 1983.

The other nasty dig that SRK has made is on Lalchand Rajput. SRK has insulted Rajput by putting his picture on an advertisement on the website with the heading 'Waste book', which says: 'If, like former team manager Lalchand Rajput, you suddenly find yourself with plenty of free time, don't despair.'

However, the dig that takes the cake is a magazine cover called Chicinfo. The cover page has Yuvraj Singh's picture with a South Indian actress and reads: Yuvraj Singh seen with someone who looks like Katrina Kaif', Yuvraj Singh seen with Deepika Padukone' and even Yuvraj Singh parties with Jessica Simpson'. There is one more 'advertisement' which says: 'When you have good looks and great style, nobody really cares about performance when it matters. Just ask Yuvraj Singh.'

SRK has even made fun of cricketers who had a great domestic career but could not shine on the international level. The digs imply that if one has Memo Boost!, they will even remember 'insignificant things like the careers of forgotten cricketers like Ajay Sharma, Noel David and Bharathi Arun!These tricks will certainly not help SRK win any matches but it will definitely leave a bad taste in the opponent's mouth.`
