Bollywood’s baadshah, Shah Rukh Khan is used to seeing cricketers get auctioned off in the Indian Premier League (IPL), especially since he co-owns the Kolkata Knight Riders. During an episode of India Poochega Sabse Shaana Kaun, Khan decided he wanted to see what it feels like to be auctioned off. He put himself up for the auction at the hands of cricketers, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey.
A source close to the project revealed that in the middle of the reality show, Khan said, “You guys know I’m very expensive. So if you had to auction me, what would you guys say?”. We don’t think Khan expected what happened next. The bidding started high, but then took a nosedive.
Yuvraj began the auction at Rs.150 crore. Then slowly, decreased the amount, saying: “No, 125.” Robin kept pushing it down even further. He said: “No, Rs.110 crore. Meanwhile Khan questioned, “Why is this auction going backwards? Just tell me what’s the lowest price?”.
