IPL 2023: Shah Rukh Khan praise Rinku Singh's match-winning performance in unique style

In the recent IPL 2023 match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Gujarat Titans (GT), Rinku Singh, a KKR batsman, became an overnight sensation after hitting five consecutive sixes in the final over to secure a thrilling win for his team. Following the game, KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter and posted a photoshopped image of #RinkuSingh as the character Pathaan, along with praising Nitish Rana and Venkatesh Iyer, whom he called "beauties". Even Shah Rukh's children, Aryan Khan and Suhana Khan, gave a shoutout to Rinku on Instagram, while their friends, Ananya Panday and Shanaya Kapoor, celebrated KKR's win.

Additionally, the official KKR Instagram account shared an old video of Shah Rukh Khan affectionately calling Rinku "mera bachcha" during a previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In another video shared by a fan page on Twitter, Shah Rukh Khan was seen performing the hook step of Jhoome Jo Pathaan and blowing kisses to his fans while wearing a black hoodie, matching pants, and sunglasses.

However, #RinkuSingh journey to becoming a professional cricketer has not been an easy one. Born into a family of modest means, Rinku had to overcome many obstacles, including financial difficulties and academic struggles. Nonetheless, he pursued cricket with determination, and after overcoming his family's debt, KKR signed him for Rs 80 lakh in 2018 at the IPL auction, after Mumbai Indians and KKR competed for his signature.

In the recent match against GT, Rinku's incredible performance is what grabbed everyone's attention, as he had to score 30 runs off the final 5 balls of the last over bowled by Yash Dayal. Rinku did the unthinkable and hit sixes on every delivery of the final over, without even one dot delivery, which could have cost KKR the game. Shah Rukh Khan was all praise for Rinku's heroics and also hailed captain Nitish Rana and Venkatesh Iyer for their key roles in the victory.
