After the finals, Shah Rukh as a goodwill gesture wore the Kings XI Punjab jersey, a custom prevalent among the footballers as he exchanged plesantries with Preity Zinta. (Celebration pics)
"I dedicated this win to my little child AbRam and the hard work done by Gautam and his team. Thank you Bengaluru and thank you IPL. We believed in ourselves and the hard work done by the team management," Shah Rukh told the official broadcasters after the IPL final. (KKR skipper Gambhir happy to prove naysayers wrong)
Shah Rukh attributed the success to "teamwork".
"We didn't have many big players and flashy names but team work did it for us. I told my children that Manish will do something special. If I were to choose my team to play against any team in the final, I wouldn't have chosen Preity's team. I wished to win against any other team."
"Punjab is a great team, they did fantastic job during auction. But luck was on our side, we did manage to capture a few moments," he added.
