Kolkata:

Overwhelmed by the support his team received from the fans, Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan today said he has never seen such enormous backing for a team.

Close to one lakh people turned up to watch the felicitation of the newly crowned IPL champions by the state government.

"I don't think any other state or country in the world has this kind of support for their sporting heroes. Many, many thanks to all of you.

Thank you Kolkata for supporting us for our second win," he said at the team's felicitation at the Eden Gardens, organised by the state government and CAB.

"Our success for KKR which is run by Venky Mysore and captained by Gautam Gambhir is just because of you. I thank all of you bowing my head on behalf of my team," he said.

"Humko aapki taaliyan bhi Padang hai aur gaaliyan bhi (we appreciate both your love and flaks)... We will keep working hard and keep entertaining you." KKR supporters are spread everywhere not just in Kolkata, he said and quoted a popular dialogue from his movie 'Don': "Don ko agar koi pakad sakta hai woh KKR ke supporters hain...."
