Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner on Tuesday released a new anthem for fans ahead of their clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The name of the song is “Laphao” which means stands for jump in Bengali. The lyrics of the song make it more tantalizing for their fans, who couldn’t attend the matches in the stadiums due to the COVID-19 pendemic.
KKR officially on Tuesday announced the new anthem during a virtual chat between the KKR team and co-owner Shah Rukh Khan in the presence of the fans. Shah Rukh Khan with his team was live on Facebook during the launch. The new anthem has been performed and composed by Badshah, KKR players and Shah Rukh Khan to bring back the frenzy that is witnessed during the matches.
Newly appointed Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan said that fans are being missed in this IPL and their support is irreplaceable. The new anthem is their way of honouring fans while capturing the sentiments. In an official statement Morgan said it was heart-warming to see so many KKR fans turn up for the virtual event and launch the fan anthem. The team wants to convey their love to the fans across the country in a special way.
Commenting on the anthem, Shah Rukh Khan said we have created the anthem to capture the emotions of all our fans aptly. The KKR players truly miss the energy of their toofani fans. With social distancing norms in place this IPL, the enthusiasm, energy, and support of the fans are being missed immensely. The fan anthem is a celebration of the bond that the KKR team and its fans have shared over the years.
Currently, KKR with 10 points holds the fourth spot on the points table and will next compete against Royal Challengers Bangalore on October 21.
