Shah Rukh Khan is at the end of his tether.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, will convince Dada fans that SRK loves Sourav Ganguly (and Bengalis) and that’s why he let him go.
Slashing the price of tickets for forthcoming KKR games has not quite had the desired effect as evidenced by fan reaction on the team web-site.
Can Shakira be the catalyst for a revival?
A video with the Latin American songstress is the latest trick up SRK’s sleeve.
But there’s a little problem, you see, Shakira’s not Bengali.
Dada fans don’t seem to understand.
Why do they harp on Ganguly’s absence?
There are other Bengalis playing the game.
Laxmi Ratan Shukla,Shami Ahmed,Manoj Tiwari and Shreevats Goswami are locally-bred talent.
And if that’s not enough, they have Shakib Al Hassan, the Bengali wonder from across the border.
Maybe, Mirpur is where KKR should hold all their games. The Bangladeshi captain is a top draw and can ensure a full house.
What SRK ought to do is call on his filmi contacts to bail him out.
What if SRK jettisons local KKR talent and field the trio as representing the best of Bengali pride?
Rani’s cricket training and regimen for “Dil Bole Hadippa” will be more than useful.
Bipasha Basu is supremely fit and must be raring to go following her recent break-up with John Abraham.
As for Kajol, she can reprise her tomboy role from “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” on the field.
If it’s star power that SRK needs, he knows just whom to rope in.
Moon Moon Sen and Riya Sen can be back-up.
