Shahrukh Khan, the Baadshah of Bollywood, along with Juhi Chawla Mehta and her husband bought ownership rights of the Kolkota based franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for a whopping $ 75.09 million, in the year 2008. The team is named Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Out of all the five editions of IPL so far, the 5th edition could be termed as the most eventful one for Shahrukh Khan and his beloved team KKR. Overall though, Shahrukh's team did manage to put up a great show at the IPL 5 and lift the trophy as well, the planetary forces didn't seem very much in Shahrukh's favour. On April 9, 2012, the King Khan was served a notice by the Rajasthan Police for smoking in public during the match between KKR and RR. Just when that controversy died down, Shahrukh was again in the news and this time again for all the wrong reasons. On May 16 of the same year, he had a verbal spat with a security personnel at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, after a match between MI and KKR. As a result, Shahrukh Khan was banned for five years from entering Mumbai Cricket Association's premises. Although he is known to have apologised for his misconduct, the authorities have not lifted the ban.
Planetary forces and their probable effects on Shahrukh Khan during the IPL 6
Ganesha observes that Rahu and Saturn are transiting over Shahrukh Khan's Natal Sun. Jupiter is retrograde in his Natal chart and transiting Jupiter is, at present, direct while he is under the influence of the Jupiter return phase. Both the factors are indicating that his team will find it hard to live up to its reputation. Transiting Saturn's retrogression may help the team and Shahrukh to a certain extent, as Shahrukh Khan is born with the retrograde Saturn in Aquarius. But overall, the coming period looks set to be tough for Shahrukh Khan and also for his team Kolkata Knight Riders. KKR will have to work very hard to maintain the rhythm in IPL 6 and also to defend its IPL title. Financially, too, the time doesn't look set to be rewarding, says Ganesha.
