Bollywood superstar and owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) IPL team, Shah Rukh Khan (SRK), seems to be the team's lucky mascot. The star, along with his son Aryan and wife Gauri, were spotted in the stands of Dubai International Cricket Stadium during the game between KKR and Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Wednesday.

As King Khan watched his team beat RR by 37 runs, fans flooded social media with photos and videos of the star. Many of them were thrilled to see their favourite star sporting a beanie with a purple mask covering his long hair and commented about his look on Twitter. This was the first time the actor has attended a game during the ongoing IPL tournament in the UAE.
The Happiest Owner right now. Thank you Shah Rukh Khan sir ji for giving golden chance to all the Youngsters in KKR, commented a fan on Twitter.

Earlier, KKR CEO Venky Mysore had confirmed that SRK would be coming to Dubai for the clash with RR. "I think we can confirm that. You will see King Khan coming into the Dubai Stadium and I think that will serve as some additional motivation for the players. It is wonderful to have him, he has been itching to get out here and come and be part of the game," Mysore had said during a live session.
This was the Kolkata Knight Riders' second victory, they beat Hyderabad Sunrisers by 7-wicket on Tuesday.
