Gautam Gambhir said, Shahrukh never behaves like a boss in front of his team

Speaking in a similar vein, Gautam Gambhir said that Shah Rukh Khan has never behaved like a boss in front of his team and thrown tantrums. On the contrary, the cricketer pointed out that Shah Rukh Khan himself has been a sportsman and has always respected the pressure put on the team members. In his words:

“As an owner, you don’t have to behave like an owner, you want to behave like a team member. You don’t have to behave like an owner, you can behave like a player as well. Players are vulnerable and they are in a profession where they are judged every day and in a place where there are no retakes. And when your owner knows there are no retakes, and you are in a high-intensity and high-pressure situation, that bond is important.”
