Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most loved actors, not just in India but also worldwide. After entertaining his audience with three releases last year, Shah Rukh has been enjoying his time in the ongoing Indian Premier League. The superstar has been constantly seen at his team's matches.

In a recent interview, Kolkata Knight Riders cricketer Phil Salt showered Shah Rukh with praise and lauded his down-to-earth nature.

English cricketer Phil Salt, who plays for KKR in the IPL, talked about Shah Rukh Khan in a recent interview with his franchise. He stated, “SRK is brilliant. He’s full of energy all the time.” Praising his humility, Salt continued, “If you just met him and you didn’t know who he was, you’d have no idea that he’s this big star in so many different fields just because he’s such a down-to-earth fella.”

Salt said that he couldn’t speak highly enough of him. He also revealed that King Khan was really invested in the players of KKR and just wished to see them perform well.
