Shahrukh Khan talks about KKR’s victory and its importance

At the unveiling of Discovery’s documentary titled ‘Living With KKR’, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan spoke about how big a difference the victory of his IPL team Kolkata Knight Rider, made to him and his players.

In fact, Khan got emotional while watching the documentary.

Interacting with the media gathering, SRK said “I think winning does matter. It does make a difference, it makes you feel stronger. If you win then a documentary will be made on you. So I would say one must go and win”

SRK also spoke about his equation with the players and why he was never too critical of the players even though they once lost 9 matches in a row.

“I did feel sad when we lost nine matches in a row but I never showed my anger or scolded the players or anyone. As I did feel that the players too were disappointed not winning the match.. They did not lose any match purposely” he said.

Prior to the final match of IPL 5 which KKR won against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Khan said “On the day of our final match the one that we won I did pray for every ball. I told my daughter I will make sure we win not just by playing but praying”

The first of the 4-part ‘Living With KKR’ series will be aired on Discovery Channel from 24th to 27th feb at 8PM.

SRK – KKR Discovery Documentary press meet



  • It’s really nice to hear srk say about his own thinking.everyoune just says-‘victory doesn’t mean.we just enjoy playing.bla…bla…bla.’all those who say this are really cheaters.

  • 1975- Sholay was declared ATBB as collected 15cr collection and broken Mughle Azam collection record by trippling the collection.
    1994- Hahk was first movie to break the record of Sholay by collection 69cr. before HAHK movies like MPK & Aankhen were declared ATBB’s as both collected 14 cr, but before HAHK, 14 cr is enough to declare a movie to ATBB as no of footfalls were huge than any other blockbuster movies.
    2001- Gadar broke HAHK record collected 76cr despited being clshed with Successful Lagaan.
    2008- Ghajini Break record of Dhoom 2 colection & Gadar Distributer Share & became first movie to join 100cr club.
    2009- 3I broken Ghajini record & collected 202cr and first movie to collect 200cr
    2013- Dhoom 3 first movie to collected 250cr & touched 275cr mark if we take all india collection, hindi version is 262cr & declared ATBB.

    Now question is why Dhoom 2,ce,oso,Rnbdj wasn’t declared ATBB, & why its been blockbusters only. the reason is.
    1. Dhoom 2 in 2006 crossed the Gadar nett collection and colled 80cr, 4 cr more than Gadar i.e. 5% higher but eventually failed to cross Gadar’s distributer share.
    other point was in 2006 LRM (72cr) was 2nd highest grosser & Krissh (69cr), D2 collected 11% more than LRM & 14% more than Krissh which seems not so huge difference. so was BB only.

    2. OSO- oso wasn’t accepted highest grosser by any site while earlier it been referred as highest grosser of all time as collected 86cr, i.e. 7.5% more than Dhoom2, again this movie Distributer share is less than Gadar’s, 2nd highest grosser in 2007 was Welcome 71cr, point to be note that both OSO & welcome had clash with Saawariya & TZP respectively, while Saawariya was a wash out and TZP was 4th highest grosser of same year with 63cr. So welcome collection is also pretty neck to neck with oso, if TZP was also flopped like Saawariya than welcome easily reached to 78-80cr mark that year, but after sometime the collection of OSO was found to be actuals around 79.5cr and accepted by all so it had not break Dhoom 2 collection.
    OSO>Dhoom 2 7.5% (if we taken OSO-86cr)
    OSO>Welcome 20%

    3. RNBDJ-86.7cr a huge misconception of SRKIANs that RNBDJ crossed 80cr mark of Dhoom 2 earlier than Ghajini and this is complete wrong and i tell you how.
    RNBDJ released on 12th dec,2008 & Ghajini on 25th dec (ghajini had 4 days extended weekend).
    RNBDJ- 1st week collection-42cr
    2nd week collection- 24cr
    3rd week collection-9
    4th week collection-3.5cr total(78.5cr)Dhoom2-42.5% more
    Ghajini>RNBDJ-32% more

    4. CE-208 cr broken 3I 202cr figure with 3% higher collection, in 2013 before Ce, YJHD collected 179cr on non-holiday & 2nd highest grosser was ETT-186cr.
    Ce>3I- 3% higher.
    CE>ETT-12% higher (2012)
    CE>YJHD-16% higher (2013)

    the growth of business of bollywood is so huge that with D3 we witness 102cr(all india) collection in just 3 day on normal weekend, so 3% higher collection than previous film can’t made you to call an ATBB & it was known by all & trade confirm that no. of footfalls of CE was less than ETT.
    while D3 All India collection was 274-275cr all languages so it collected, 32% more than CE & 35% more than 3I, if we take only hindi figure of D3 of 262cr than still 26% more than CE. So a difference of 25%-32% is sufficient for a film to declare ATBB.

    So if we see movies like Ghajni,3I,D3 we found the collection of all 3 movie were min.30% highere than previous highest grosser, but in case od Dhoom2,CE & oso it was even less than 10%, plus movies like OSO & Dhoom2 failed to break the distributer share of previous record holder Gadar. this is calling the notable growth in business.

  • KING KHAN when you attended maximun matches and the result KKR won ipl5.when you show the match at the end of ipll6,on that day KKR defeated RCB.I know one thing you’re the luck of your team.this IPL surely KKR will win.

    in zee cine awards SRK got best popular male and also won best popular in social media among youngsters,this shows how he influenced the Indians for which maximum people voted and haters mouth will shut up forever.also one person named @nipun who always praised lootera and sonakshi,she got best actress jury who commented to spit on zee cine jury.hope nipun’s mouth will not raise against real winners afterwards.

    just one word to say KING KHAN SRK always ROCKSSSSS.

  • Now question arises how DDLJ,KKHH,RH declared ATBB because they failed to break 69.5cr collection record of HAHK.
    DDLJ (1995)- 61cr failed to break HAHK collection, but the same year 2nd highest grosser was KA-32cr (Blockbuster) so the difference is about 90%+ so its sufficinet for it to called ATBB & no of footfalls were huge than any other movie till date slightly less than HAHK.

    RAja Hindustani (1996)-48, 2nd highest grosser of that year was collected around 16cr,RH collected 3 times of 2nd highet grossr of that year, second thing was that its footfalls was less than DDLJ & HAHK but both HAHK & DDLJ collected huge money on big cities while RH collected more in single screens cinemas of smaller cities, where ticket prices were less than Any single screen of bigger cities, so it had 20cr diffrence with HAHK but footfall diffrence is not so less.
    plus from 1996-2005 there was only one movie that is Gadar who crossed 50cr in these 10year.So that shows RH definitely did huge collection to call itself an ATBB.

    Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 1998-45cr. It also collected even less than RH but declared ATBB, 2nd highest grosser was BMCM-20cr so collected 125% more than BMCM, its footfalls was less than RH but still collected huge money that time with clashing with BMCM but that time clash doesn’t effect much on any collection because movie were use to run more than 2-3-4 sometime more than 6 month & 1 year to complete its final run and collection.

    GADAR- 76cr, 9% more than HAHK but because as i mention no film able to even touch 50cr mark except Gadar in 9-10 years, itself was huge money, and still this movie contains the highest grosse records in 9th,10th and furthur week collection, this movie released before Multiplex era began, so that time it was so huge to collect those figure so its remarkable collection of GADAR that time, hence declared ATBB.

    Dabangg 2010-140cr now question is why Dabangg been termed a ATBB as it collected 60cr less than 3I, but the reason was its Distributer share was 2nd highest, the movie collected huge in Single screens so no of footfalls were higher than 3rd highest grosser Ghajini but less than 3I, plus even trade wasn’t expected that time that 100cr gross is os easy to earn even we witness Ghajni & 3I in consecutive year to break milestones. So it was declared an ATBB that time and it deserved.

    Note:- the achievement of ghajini is huge because since Hahk-1994 to 2008 the business growth was 15% in highest grosser collection as HAHK collected 69cr & Dhoom 2-80cr held record before Ghajni, so Ghajni was first which help to grow market and it subsequently collected 34cr more than Dhoom-2, and shows with proper marketing strategy and entertaining product we can collect huge and plus till than Multiplexes were established properly.
    another thing Aamir’s RDB & Fanaa in 2006 were first 2 movies who touched 50cr mark,since multiplex era started since 2002 & except Gadar only actor whose 2 movies who collected 50cr+ till mid 2006, and the same year only krissh,LRM & Dhoom (all franchise) were collected more in that year, plus Don which also was remake not fresh script collected 50cr so only Aamir had fresh script that time to touch 50cr.

    @yash & @sss i hope you get your answer why ATBB differ from BB and why its not easy to be an ATBB,if not than i can’t do more than this.

    that’s why Media,Trade and Aamir fans saying that its Aamir who set trend for collection, SRk has been consistent with successful movies, so as Akshay & Salman having more hits than Aamir, but its Aamir who broke those tough barrier and created new milestone, plus in quality movie he is leading than any actor whether any one agree or not.An employee who giving his best and completed task successfully help to run business smoothly but the market also requires someone who contributed to raise the standard & target higher and help the market to grow which is done by Aamir in Bollywood.

  • This year ipl will held in oversease, so kkr have less chance to win the tornament, kkr have very storng spin attak but lack of pace depertment, i can’t understand why kkr leave mohammad smai n buy vinay kumar, this year may not be great for kkr.

  • @indicine
    i dont know why r u giving so much atention to srk ,writing it of about each and every shit of him.
    There r several news also on bollywood but u guies r interested on this only.

    For example u can also write an article about yo yo honey singh’s song in which salman and akshay gonna feature,
    or on amir’s satyamev jayate.

  • If we see KKR in first 3 IPL, it was no where but since the arrival of new team and Gambhir, this team started to deliver reached semis in season 4, winner in season 5 but failed in season 6.but this year i have gut feeling that KKR will perform superb and Gambhir will be key player and he will thrash every other team bowling attack as to show how good a player he is,and it require from him to comeback in team INdia. Good luck KKR.

  • Srk prayed for his team to win IPL and his team won and many people started praying after watching RA1 and they recovered.

  • KKR and Srk have lot of similarities with them like both give blockbuster performance after 4 years.KKR won IPL after 4 years and in the same way Srk gave blockbuster CE after 4 years.KKR is a Leap year team and Srk is a Leap year

  • @ Indicine… this a cricket site???i think no!! then what’s the significance of this type of posts here???just related to srk;that’s it!!!!????

  • @sky,your analysis is just a waste of time.the analysis you made it is as simple as all people knows atbbs earns more than question is not that,I asked why dhoom3 declared atbb and CE declared bb.if you are so anxious to compared the collection,then also remember about film’s budget upon which it made,that is CE’s budget 75cr and dhoom3’s budget 134cr.say why CE is not an atbb?????by the way don’t compare hahk with EPIC DDLJ.even a kid also say which one is better.all sooraj barjatya’s movie is family member based not leading actor based like DDLJ.also DDLJ collected more in overseas than hahk.also DDLJ’s later year’s collection didn’t counted even though it ran in many theatres.according to boi, mpk,rh,ghajini,dabang,ce are no more atbb,they are simple bbs.use your mind.

    don’t bother so much about KKR.we don’t say it is a strongest team.there are many teams like MI,CSK,RR holds better players and stronger than KKR.what we say despite being a weak it was at least won 1 ipl.also before started ipl,this team has more popularity than others in every season being a SRK’s team.

    @sachin11,hits are meaningless for you,right??????what about jai ho and talash both weaker khan couldn’t gave it a single hit getting holidays and huge screens.shame on you and your the who told you,SRK has one more blockbuster than salman’s total bbs although both has same atbb.also amir is much behind that,he couldn’t be counted due to weakest star power in domestic and overseas just like salman in overseas.who cares salman gave 10 lagatar disasters,so 5bbs is not a great thing he couldn’t make it even said leap year,in that sense both amir and salman got their success after 15 years or more.shame on you.

  • @sss the question you asked from mine, please ask to admin who updated my later comment while not earlier comment in which i mentioned why ce wasn’t atbb. Bhai ab admin hi update nahi kar raha so what can i do.

  • if we use aamir fans theory of pulling in crowds
    then sam worthington is the biggest crowd
    puller because avatar is the highest grossing
    movie of all times but that doesnt make him
    bigger then tom brad johnny. you know what i
    am saying. every sensible person would know
    what i am talking about. crowd pulling is a game
    of SRK and salman. Aamir’s job is to deliver
    good movies. he cant make a movie successful
    unless its grand in nature to begin with.

  • @sss now my comment updated on the page so read it first.
    if Ghajini,RH wasn’t ATBB than how can KKHH (45cr) released later than RH and collected 3 cr less than RH is atbb, how can DDLJ was atbb than collecting 9 cr less than HAHK, don’t worry we don’t require from kid who is better as collection speaks where HAHK stand and where DDLJ, and you are talking about overseas when come Overseas collection become important, if yes than tell me collection of Deewar,Don (1978),Baazigar,Sholay overseas, only fools like you require overseas collection to prove you star better not us, because Bollywood is not cricket than you should perform in overseas than we can say you are successful, Beta overseas ko koi bhav nahi deta. and talking
    about srk he is even struggled to cross 3I in overseas. According to boi KANK is semi hit,CDI is super hit, HSSH is blockbuster, do you agree?

    RNBDJ- 1st week collection-42cr
    2nd week collection- 24cr
    3rd week collection-9
    4th week collection-3.5cr total(78.5cr)
    Rest of week-8 cr.
    Ghajini- first week -64cr
    2nd week-26cr
    Rest of weeks-24cr
    RBNDJ 4 the week ended when Ghajini completed its 2 week run, so at the time RBNDJ was 78.5cr and Ghajini reached 90cr, that’s the fact that RBNDJ crossed Dhoom 2 later than Ghajini.
    the above point was missed in my earlier comments.

    i think genuine people will understand those facts,i may be wrong for some point.
    now whoever want to call Ra1 ATBB & Ghajini-below avg. welcome from my side.

    and those asking why we pointing on Ra1 to declared a hit, i have reason to prove my point but do you have? have you ever witness why people not arguing for JTHJ & Don2 verdict as they both collected less than Ra1. Fact is Ra1 was a failure.

  • @Killer and @Bivan, U r complainin @ a wrong place as some1 has said it b4. Just look @ d number of posts & coverages here. U’ll c whom d site covers d most. Dis is ess,aar,kaysine. So, y shud it cover other actors’s reports even thou dey r film-related???
