Kolkata: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has said he would take off his shirt, to show off his six-pack abs if Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) reached the Indian Premier League 4 (IPL 4) final, much like Sourav Ganguly's move after winning the 2002 NatWest Series final.
"If we reach the final at Chennai, I will take off my shirt, fluff it in the air, and show my six-pack abs, or may be eight-pack abs," Shah Rukh said at the Eden Gardens on Sunday, after KKR won their third match on the trot with an eight-wicket decimation of Rajasthan Royals.
The final is slated for May 28 at the Chepauk ground in Chennai.
In 2002, after winning the Natwest Trophy final against England, then Indian skipper Ganguly had celebrated by taking off his shirt and waving it in the air from the Lord's balcony.
Ganguly was criticised by the English, but he retorted saying he was only imitating English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff who done the same in a series in India.
Ganguly, who has featured in the KKR side in all the past three editions of IPL, was not considered for the team this year.
