Shah Rukh Khan has won the hearts of his fans by footing the bills of a boxer who was struggling with a huge medical bill. Though Shah Rukh wanted to keep this act private, it has come to the light recently.
The star helped boxing legend Kaur Singh (69), who has been struggling to pay his medical bills. Shah Rukh was moved by a report which stated that the 1982 Asian Games gold medallist was finding it difficult to pay his Rs 2 lakh bill incurred for treating his cardiac condition. In a recent statement, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Sportspersons bring pride to a country and it is our duty to look after them as a society. After reading about Kaur Singh, we as a sporting unit felt the need to stand by our fellow sportsman and urge everyone else to do the same in their own way. We wish Kaur Singh a speedy recovery and a healthy life”.
The money has been given through Shah Rukh’s IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The veteran boxer thanked all who have extended help to him. He said, “After receiving such huge support from all over the country, I feel as if I am reliving the glory of the past. I thank everyone who came out and extended help.”
Awww! Shah Rukh! This is exactly why we love you.
