Is entrepreneur Sachiin Joshi, who Shah Rukh Khan considers his lucky mascot
Shah Rukh Khan adds one more to his enourage. While his regular actor buddies accompany him to all the Indian Premier League matches his team the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) play, entrepreneur-turned-actor Sachiin Joshi now joins that exclusive list.
Says a source, "SRK and Sachiin have been great friends for some time now. He was present at all the matches KKR played last year.
But this year, shooting commitments kept him away. When Sachiin ventured into the energy drink market, it was Shah Rukh who helped him launch it. The younger man is making his B-Town acting debut with a thriller titled Aazaan and SRK has been a great support."
A man to know
Says Sachiin, "I know Shah Rukh through common friends. He has been supporting my brand as a friend though we have no official contract with him as brand ambassador. It was generous of him to launch the product. I am fortunate to get an invite from him to attend his KKR matches. He is a great man to know!"
The film stars Sachiin Joshi as an army officer (and informant) who has to go undercover beyond enemy lines to save the country from the threat of biological warfare. The film is being directed by Prashant Chaddha.
