They all later went to the Eden Gardens where the felicitation ceremony was organised.
At the Eden, Shah Rukh broke into an impromptu jig as rock band Bhumi played some of their famous songs. He danced in Bengali traditional style, then broke into bhangra and finally did some Goanese dance steps.
He also pulled in actress Juhi Chawla, who too like him is a part owner of the KKR, and both gyrated to the tunes of the band as the chock-a-block stadium roared in appreciation.Later on, the KKR players with the team owners took a victory lap around the ground. Shah Rukh blew kisses and waved at the spectators whose numbers had far exceeded the sitting capacity at the stadium.
