Shah Rukh Khan arranged a short live interactive session yesterday with his team to launch Kolkata Knight Riders’ fan anthem. ‘Laphao’ is the name of KKR’s fan anthem and it also has some rap verses by Badshah. Teammates including Dinesh Kartik, skipper Eoin Morgan, last Man of the Match Lockie Ferguson were all present in this live interaction with King Khan and everyone loved the fan anthem at the first place. SRK made everyone feel like home and interacted with everyone like a friend whether it was youngsters Shivam Mavi, Nagarkoti, Nitish Rana or Rahul Tripathi. However, we came to meet hardcore Rajinikanth fan from KKR and its none other than Dinesh Kartik.
