Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who co-owns Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), is happy that several actors are encouraging different sports in the country, but feels the only way to make sports popular is through TV.

Appreciating the efforts of actors like Abhishek Bachchan, who has invested in a kabaddi team as well as in a football franchise, SRK said at a press conference yesterday: “We should be supporting every kind of sport and I’m glad some actors have come forward. But it can only happen through TV. Till the time a sport is not popular on TV, it won’t get the required encouragement,” he added.
