Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most famous and most expensive actors in Bollywood. He owns Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. He is also popular for featuring in a movie based on hockey, 'Chak de India', which was a box-office hit, as well as among critics.
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has an immense fan following, and there is no doubt about it. Although he has developed a knack of doing very selected movies of late, most of them turn out to be a box-office hit, as his fan base keeps increasing with each passing movie.
Meanwhile, SRK is also known for his love for sports. His movie, based on hockey, 'Chak de India', was a super hit, both at the box-office and among critics. Since then, he has been seen involving himself heavily in the world of sports.
SRK currently owns a couple of teams, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Trinbao Knight Riders (TKR) in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). While this shows his love for cricket, have you ever wondered which sport would he have played had he chosen sports as his career? Here, we present five sports best-suited for him.
Cricket: It's a no-brainer that SRK, who owns a couple of franchise cricket teams, would not love to play the sport and choose it as his full-time career. In fact, he played the sport once, during a friendly match between the managements of KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in 2011, where he was impressive with the bat. However, it would be tough to say if he would have gained similar popularity as he has today.
Hockey: Another no-brainer, as he has already done a movie based on the sport of hockey. Also, during the promotion of the movie, SRK had stated that he has a love for the sport, as he used to play it during his school days, while he also wants his son AbRam to learn the sport and represent India in competitive tournaments.
Fencing: Inspired by his movie 'Asoka', SRK displayed tremendous skills when it came to fighting with a sword in his hand. As he was the emperor of the Mauryan empire, he had to do it perfectly. Nonetheless, he did seem sublime in his actions, leaving us to wonder if he could actually play fencing. If he did, India certainly would have been in contention for a medal at the competitive games.
E-sports gamer: Not exactly a physical sport, but based on his movie 'Ra.One', he is likely to become a handy e-gamer. He had also said that he likes to play e-games during his leisure times. Also, we know that people who play e-sports regularly, do go on to become renowned e-gamers and earn huge bucks. Thus, not a bad choice for SRK at all.
MMA fighter: Not sure how much he enjoys combat sport, but he certainly loves to combat in his movies. Furthermore, with an athletic physique, especially with those six-packs of his, he would be certainly best-suited in the Mixed Martial Art (MMA). Renowned MMA fighters like Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and even Brock Lesnar would have got a tough competition from him. Maybe, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president, Dana White, should give him a call.
