Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t need an occasion to look back at his film Chak De! India and so he shared a post, thanking the “young ladies” and the team of the 2007 sports film. Shah Rukh Khan posted a selfie and referred to himself as the “gunda of the film” because as you know, coach Kabir Khan said in the film, “Har team mein sirf ek hi gunda ho saktha hai, aur is team ka gunda main hoon.” Chak De! India clocked 14 years on August 10 this year. Yes, it has been that long. Coming back to SRK’s post, he wrote: “Just felt like thanking all the young ladies of Chak De! India for making the film such a beautiful experience.” In his post, Shah Rukh Khan also thanked the film’s director Shimit Amin, producer Aditya Chopra, screenwriter Jaideep Sahni, former hockey player Mir Ranjan Negi, cinematographer Sudeep Chatterjee and singer Sukhwinder Singh, who sang the title track. He thanked everyone “involved with this labour of love for making me the ‘Gunda’ of the film.” Ranveer Singh dropped a crown emoji in the comments.
