The cricketers play cricket while actors act in films. What’s new in that? But the Indian Premier League (IPL) has broken all the barriers to showcase your hidden talents. The film stars can’t play professional cricket so they bought IPL teams while a few cricketers keep on trying their luck in the acting field. Following this trend, recently a bunch of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players along with their captain Dinesh Karthik tried out a few dialogues of their owner, Shah Rukh Khan and in return, got a straightforward yet hilarious reply from their superstar boss.
Cricketers including Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Shubhman Gill and Karthik took this task of saying some of SRK’s famous dialogues. How they ended up will definitely tickle some of your funny bones.
Here’s the video:

Well, that was a good try though. But wait, why would we be the judge when the King of Bollywood is there himself to say who passed the screen test. SRK’s verdict is a pure gold and most of us would agree to it.
As much as I love my team, here’s the deal. I leave the cricket to u & u leave the acting to me!! Ha ha https://t.co/lJ15cgEYxZ

Yes, the reality is a bit harsh but we, the fraternity of cricket followers, would like to see amazing cricketers receiving accolades on the field of cricket because we are not at all short of talented actors, as of now.
And if anyone of these may want to turn into a professional actor after their cricketing careers, there are lots of examples to follow. The Aussies can ask Brett Lee while the Indians can watch films like ‘Khel‘ and ‘Aksar 2’.
