The Punjab Kings caused a stir when they bought Tamil Nadu Shahrukhan beatman at a mini-auction on the eve of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.

Co-owner Preti Zinta was spotted teasing actor Arian’s son at auction, saying, “We got Shah Rukh.” On Sunday, the Punjab Kings shared a video of the batsman firing a small shot in training and teasing Shah Rukh Khan’s nickname “King Khan” in his signature.
