Is SRK a bad loser?

1IBNLive IBNLive Google Buzz

Now that Saurav Ganguly has embarrassingly gone unselected at the high profile IPL auction, quite a few eyebrows are raised and a few bold fingers are pointing at Shah Rukh Khan. SRK's company which owns the team Kolkata Knight Riders not only didn't retain the once upon a time captain of his team but didn't bid for him as well. The general perception is that SRK and Ganguly didn't get on too well during their stint together and SRK decided to dump him, even when Ganguly was the one of the topmost run getters at the IPL games last year. It's a known fact that SRK hates losing perhaps a little more than others do. I remember him telling me in an interview soon after a humiliating loss at the IPL, "I cry when I lose.

Priyanka Chopra on Karan Johar's show the other day, was a sight all right. She agreed to come on the show with her on-off or is he, is he not? boyfriend Shahid Kapur. And that's all the coup that she was ready to spring us with. When asked about her relationship with the man, she veered between being defensive and beating around the bush so much that it started getting annoying, after a point. That brings us to the question - Does an actress really need to be coy about her love life in this time and age? I remember Madhuri Dixit in her heydays telling me that she has not dated anyone ever. And I had come back with my mouth hanging in surprise. 'All these years and she hasn't dated anyone? Impossible', my ever-so-practical friend had pooh-poohed it right away. 'Why not? If Sonali Bendre can....
