Throwback Tuesday: When Shah Rukh Khan joined Kapil Dev for a football match | Hindi movie news

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is one of Bollywood’s sports fanatics, especially when it comes to cricket. While he was an active cricketer in his college days, he is now a proud owner of a cricket team. Furthermore, he also shares a close connection with Indian players and is probably the closest to cricket legend Kapil Devi. However, did you know that SRK and Kapil Dev once teamed up for an impromptu football match instead of cricket?

We came across a vintage monochrome image from the 90s that is currently floating around the internet. In the photo, young-looking SRK is seen giving Kapil Dev a tough competition at a football match. While it appears to be a friendly match in which both legends are accompanied by their other friends, it certainly speaks volumes about their love of the sport, be it cricket or football.

Meanwhile, returning to SRK’s current working front, SRK is currently shooting for his next film “Pathan” directed by Sidharth Anand. The film will also star Deepika Padukone in the lead role with a special appearance of Salman Khan as her iconic character Tiger. Shah Rukh Khan is also part of Aamir Khan’s “Laal Singh Chaddha” with Kareena Kapoor.
