Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir always comes out with super serious but after started off the Indian Premier League on the biggest note securing 10 wickets win over Gujarat Lions with a recorded history in the IPL and 184 partnership with Chris Lynn. It’s has seen dancing so much so that no one can ever and also his wife.
The 35-year-old KKR captain Gambhir wrote in a column in the Hindustan Times about how he was ‘a quintessential Punjabi who loves his butter chicken and daal’.
He loves Punjabi song and music but neither Natasha (wife) nor Shah Rukh Khan able to shake his body on to the dance floor.
Gautam wrote “let me share a little story. I am a quintessential Punjabi who loves his butter chicken and daal. I love my Punjabi music but not those DJ kinds. But I never dance which is very un-Punjabi and akin to an Aussie cricketer who doesn’t sledge!”
“I never ever have, not even to please my wife or erstwhile female interests. Not even Mr. Khan could make me dance at any of KKR’s IPL after-match parties.”
“But then there is always a first. Yes, yours truly shook his leg and that too for a sponsor’s shoot. Yes, I did. I know my wife Natasha will kill me for this as I have turned down her demands, instructions, and even appeals to shake a leg with her.”
I didn’t even dance at my brother-in-law’s bachelor’s party which Natasha says “is criminal”. Anyways, post my debut gig, my KKR mates are out to get me. That smirk never leaves Yusuf Pathan’s face; Surya Kumar Yadav is offering me dance tips in exchange of batting tips.”
“One other gentleman has quietly told me never to dance again. Well…”
Gautam also danced two-step with his opening partner Chris Lynn, who has scored 93 off 41 balls, to guide Kolkata Knight Riders to 10 wickets win.
