As critics slammed Mamata Banerjee for giving a rousing welcome to a private corporate team like KKR, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan yesterday defended the West Bengal chief minister's action.

“There is no harm in being happy and sharing happiness. Nobody should criticise it. It’s alright to be happy,” said Shah Rukh, the co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders which lifted the Indian Premier League (IPL) trophy.

“Let’s not be political. It has been done because we all are happy. There is no wrong if we bring a small pinch of happiness in the city of joy,” he said.

King Khan, who is also Bengal’s brand ambassador, along with the KKR team was felicitated by Banerjee for winning the IPL tournament.
