Kolkata: While Bollywood biggies may flaunt their newfound status as football team owners, superstar Shah Rukh Khan has revealed how he refused to be a part of the Indian Super League (ISL) for not being able to lay hands on the team from his beloved Kolkata.
Shah Rukh, who co-owns Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), expressed his regret about his inability to own the city franchise for the high-profile football tournament, which has stars like Abhishek Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham as team co-owners.
"It's very unfortunate and sad for me...I very much wanted to be part of the ISL and own a football team. But there was no way that I would have had Kolkata. And if I can't have Kolkata, then I am not playing football for any other city or state," Shah Rukh told media persons here.
