Shah Rukh wants Ganguly to lead his Kolkata IPL team

Mumbai, Jan 24 (UNI) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan after winning the bid for the Kolkata team, said he would like to see former India captain Sourav Ganguly lead the outfit in the Indian Premier League.

Shah Rukh, along with fellow-actor Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta, won the bid for the Kolkata team for USD 75.09 million and said he would seek suggestions of experts before putting together a winning combination.

Speaking to CNN-IBN, Shah Rukh Khan said ''I have already decided on the entertainment part but we have not decided on the core and content of the team. We want to put together a winning combination, for which I would definitely seek advice of the experts.'' ''And the Prince of Kolkata would be the obvious choice for leading the side. I hope Ganguly leads my team,'' he said.

''I guess I would have to make more films to ensure we can run the team,'' he added in jest.
