Shahrukh Khan Denies Offering any Role To Sunanda Pushkar in His IPL Franchise KKR

Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan has denied offering any role in the team to Dubai-based entrepreneur Sunanda Pushkar. Earlier, Sunanda had said that she was offered a similar role to manage affairs of Kolkata Knight Riders, but she had refused.

Pushkar is a friend of the Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor.

"Just so that the channels get it right. We never offered a stake in KKR to anybody ever, including this lady in the midst of (the) Kochi thing," the Bollywood superstar wrote on his twitter page.

Pushkar has a Rs. 70 crore stake in the Kochi franchise, which was given to her for free. It is alleged that she is a shareholder on behalf of Tharoor.

The shareholding pattern of the franchise turned into a massive controversy after IPL commissioner Lalit Modi named all the stakeholders on his Twitter page.

Modi claimed that he was asked not to reveal Pushkar's stake by Tharoor, who is speculated to marry her after completing the divorce proceedings with his Canadian wife.

Tharoor, however, has denied the charge, insisting that he has no financial stake in the franchise.
