Unveiling the Mystery of Gautam Gambhir’s Meeting with Shah Rukh Khan at Mannat

After helping the Kolkata Knight Riders win the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2024, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is still a highly sought-after figure. Prior to the current season, Gambhir only signed with KKR, having previously spent two years with the Lucknow Super Giants. 
According to recent reports, Gambhir decided to stay in Kolkata instead of Lucknow permanently. In reality, between 2018 and 2022, a report stated that Gambhir and Shah Rukh Khan, the co-owner of KKR, would frequently meet at the latter’s home.
According to a report published in Dainik Jagaran, Gambhir decided to leave the Lucknow team in 2023 after receiving a “blank cheque” offer from Shah Rukh. The former India opener was invited to stay with the Knight Riders for the next ten years.
Despite having had a few strong campaigns with LSG, Gambhir was considering quitting the team last year, and Shah Rukh was prepared to seize the chance. Gambhir was allegedly welcomed by the Bollywood legend to his home, “Mannat,” where they spoke for two hours.
Gambhir chose to join KKR because he was up for the challenge after captaining the team to two IPL championships in 2012 and 2014. But LSG owner Sanjeev Goenka was taken aback by everything and was perplexed by what had happened.
However Having spent just a year with KKR, Gambhir finds himself at a crossroads, as he is supposedly in line to be appointed head coach of India. In terms of replacing Rahul Dravid, Gambhir is reportedly at the top of the BCCI desire list. Nevertheless, Gambhir faces a challenging choice now that he has accepted Shah Rukh Khan’s “10-year offer.”
If Gambhir declines, the BCCI is likewise short of well-known alternatives. It has been claimed that VVS Laxman is not interested in being the head coach of India, and no well-known Australian has applied. It all comes down to whether or not the BCCI can persuade Gambhir.
