New Delhi: Bollywood veteran actress Juhi Chawla said her daughter Jahnavi Mehta, megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s children Aaryan Khan and Suhana Khan are ‘the present’ of their IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The young trio were the center of attraction during the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bangalore as they attended the event to represent their parents.
In a conversation with indianexpress.com, Juhi was asked if Suhana, Aryan, and Jahnavi are the future of Kolkata Knight Riders, to which she replied, “Not just the future, they are the present of the team. It is very funny how there was a time when our kids would be at home and we would be on the screen. Suddenly, it was the other way around because I was home watching my daughter on-screen. It was beautiful. God bless her, Aryan and Suhana. I wish them all the best.”
For the unversed, Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, the two iconic Indian film actors, jointly own KKR.
Earlier this year in February, Juhi had posted a collage featuring Jahnavi, Aryan, and Suhana from the IPL 15 auction. She wrote in the caption of her post, “Welcome to our KKR players, Shreyas Iyer, Pat Cummins, Nitish Rana …and our bunch of young owners Aryan, Suhana, and Jahnavi ..!!! Thank you Venky and allllll our KKR staff. Super grateful and super happy.”
Meanwhile, the complete schedule of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 has been released. The first match of this season will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders on March 26.
