New Delhi: Aryan Khan, the co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and son of Bollywood emperor Shah Rukh Khan, is also a part of the IPL Auction 2021. This is the first time when King Khan’s son joined the auction. A picture related to this was also shared from the IPL’s Twitter handle. In which Aryan was seen sitting at the table of KKR in the briefing before the auction with Juhi Chawla’s daughter Janhvi. Both were accompanied by KKR CEO Venky Mysore, Jai Mehta and the team’s assistant coach Abhishek Nair.
Shah Rukh Khan’s elder son Aryan has been following the KKR team from the very beginning. They have been watching KKR matches since the first season. He was also seen in the stadium watching the team’s match with his father in the UAE last season. Even before this, he has often been seen in the stadium during KKR matches. If the images shared with the official Twitter handle of the IPL are to be believed, this will be the first time that Aryan will sit on the auction table and choose the player for KKR.
