There is a reason why Shah Rukh Khan is known as the man with a golden heart. Earlier this month, the actor was present at an event which was organized for the Paralympians of India.
Shahrukh revealed that he was present over there for a selfish reason. The actor said; I'm here for myself, I'm here to take inspiration from these athletes, I have come here to get motivated.
The actor also revealed that since childhood he had an ardent desire to become a sportsman. When i was young, I was used to play hockey,football, cricket and even used to take part in athletics. I had a dream of representing my country in any sport. But, I got hurt and the injury could not be treated properly for some reason or the other. It was then that i thought my life is finished. It was because of my parents encouragement that i took charge of my life.
Now in a new lead, Indian Hockey team is requesting the actor to cheer them up in the field. Manpreet Singh, a Hockey player from the National Hockey team posted a Video on his Twitter where he wrote; @iamsrk Sir aap to hockey khel chuke ho. Main aur poori Indian team to ye jaanti hi hai that your #HeartBeatsForHockey. Kya aap #HWC2018 ka hissa banoge? Kya aap hamein support karne maidan mein uttroge? Pls duniya ko bhi ye bata do ki aapka dil ab bhi hockey ke liye dhadakta hai
As soon as this came into Shahrukh's notice, he replied by writing;
Neki aur pooch pooch? Mujhe bolne ki der hai mere bhai, main koodh kar pahunch jaoonga! I wish u and our team the best. Hockey is the pride of India. We will cheer Chak De India! Thank u for thinking of me. Mera Dil Hockey ke liye bahut tez dhadakta hai!!! #HeartBeatsForHockey
