Everybody is used to seeing cricketers being auctioned in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and also Shah Rukh Khan. But the Superstar put himself up for ‘auction’ at the hands of cricketers Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa during an episode of TV show India Poochega Sabse Shaana Kaun?
A close source to the set says that King Khan the co-owner of IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders showed a keen interest in getting himself auctioned in the middle of the reality game show.
SRK said, “You guys know I’m very expensive. So if you had to auction me, what would you guys say?”
The auction was a unique one since the bid started from a high amount, and then droped.
The auction began at Rs.150 crore by Yuvraj. Then slowly, decreased the amount, saying: “No, 125.”
But Robin kept pushing it even further down and said: “No, Rs.110 crore.”
“Why is this auction going backwards? Just tell me what the lowest price is?” questioned SRK.
