I have apologised to Gavaskar: Shah Rukh Khan

New Delhi: Indian premier League (IPL) Season 2 is just around the corner and Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan spoke to CNN-IBN about the mystery behind his team's captain and his role as the team's media manager.

“We decided to announce the captain on 16th (April). Anything we say will be held against us so we will decide first, then we will make it a mystery and release it on 16th. That will be enigmatic for the team and it will be good marketing as well. Also, it's John Buchanan who will decide. We are playing well, so the whole theory that we want to try could work well,” said Shah Rukh about the multiple captain theory.

He also clarified about his comments on his controversial comments on Sunil Gavaskar.

“I have not said anything against Mr Gavaskar. I just wanted to have a breathing space to try something new. He is my idol. I have sent him an apology letter if he also felt so because he was in America that time. Due to the wonderful methodology that television applies, that comment was for people who don't understand cricket and are still telling me how to run this team. If Mr Gavaskar asks me to walk on my head and run this team then I would. Anything that Mr Gavaskar says that has to do with cricket, if he mentions, it should be followed,” he said.
