Superstar Shah Rukh Khan may be sad over his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator, but he is still a gentleman and he tried to cheer up the KKR cheerleaders.

Shah Rukh tweeted an image of his cheerleaders crying and captioned it, "Always wish my KKR boys the best and never said anything to the girls who bring so much cheer. Lov u girls and thanks."

The 50-year-old also wished Sunrisers Hyderabad good luck for the "semifinal" of the Indian Premier League's ninth edition on Friday.

"Can’t deny, feeling very sad we didn’t get it right. Ami KKR till next year now. Sometimes our best is just not good enough. All the best SRH," the "Chennai Express" star tweeted on Wednesday.

On the silver screen, Shah Rukh will be seen in the upcoming movie "Raees", directed by Rahul Dholkaia. 

The "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" actor will be seen sharing screen space with actor Nawazuddin Siddqui and Pakistani talent Mahira Khan in the action thriller film. Sunny Leone has been roped in for a special song in the movie.
