Kolkata Knight Riders are one of the most successful franchises of IPL. However KKR fans played a big role in making this team stand where it is today. In the first 3-4 season, KKR failed miserably and disappointed all its fans. While their were news items, criticism, questions being raised on the team and their existence in IPL, Kolkata fans stood by their team through thick and thin.
Even when the team went on a complete transformation leaving behind the Prince of Kolkata, ‘Sourav Ganguly‘ the fans understood and supported the decision. The way the new team was accepted on Eden Gardens was worth watching. The love people of Kolkata showered upon their favourite players and the owner ‘Shah Rukh Khan’ is worthy of praise. More than 1 lakh people turned up on Eden Gardens during the celebration event of their first IPL win in 2012.
But now during the Covid-19 pandemic the fans have been restricted to their home. However KKR have not forgotten it’s fans. Shah Rukh Khan and his boys have just now released the new fan anthem of KKR ‘Laphao’ which celebrates each and every well wishers and lover of Kolkata Knight Riders.
