Kolkata Knight Riders’ skipper Gautam Gambhir is a no-nonsense kind of person and always maintain’s a high work ethic as an athlete. His professionalism was on display when he guided KKR to victory against Gujarat Lions in their opening game of IPL 2017.
Despite such an astounding performance, the Delhi lad is worried that his wife might kill him once she comes to know about what he has done off-the-field.
In his column on Hindustan Times, Gambhir wrote, neither his wife Natasha nor Team owner Shahrukh Khan has been able to make Gambhir dance ever.
“Let me share a little story,” wrote Gambhir. “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 (Shah Rukh) 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…”
