Gautam Gambhir finally turned it around for Shah Rukh Khan’s beleaguered franchise, gaining them their first IPL crown in 2012. A consistent league phase was followed by assertive performances in the knock outs. Kolkata defeated the perennially strong Chennai Super Kings in the final at Chepauk, chasing down a big total in a pressure situation, and allowing their superstar owner to cartwheel his way on to the playing arena.

It was a similar display of jubilation that had cost SRK dear at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium. A policeman objected to the actor’s presence on the field of play after the match with Mumbai Indians. Allegedly inebriated and with his ego piqued, SRK rained a torrent of abuses on the cop, threatening grave physical action, before he had to be removed from the spot. The fracas resulted in a five-year ban for the actor from the Wankhede.
