Gautam Gambhir Spent Hours At Mannat In Meeting With Shah Rukh Khan, Left LSG Owner Stunned

Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir remains a man of extreme interest, and understandably so, because of the role he played in Kolkata Knight Riders' triumph at Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Gambhir only joined KKR ahead of this year's campaign, leaving Lucknow Super Giants, a franchise he had spent two years with. It has now been reported that Gambhir's switch from Lucknow to Kolkata wasn't a short-term call. In fact, a report has claimed that Gambhir and Shah Rukh Khan, KKR's co-owner, would often meet at the latter's house between 2018 and 2022.
According to a report in Dainik Jagaran, Gambhir made up his mind of leaving the Lucknow franchise in 2023 after being given the 'blank cheque' offer by Shah Rukh, who asked the former India opener to be at the Knight Riders for the next 10 years
