Bollywood actor and global icon Shah Rukh Khan is in talks to acquire the I-League team Mohun Bagan

Reports reveal that several rounds of talks between the superstar’s representatives and the club’s management have already taken place, with a view to aid the megastar’s ambition of owning a football team in Kolkata.

Though several prospective buyers had shown interest in acquiring the 127 year-old Kolkata marquee, SRK is said to be the closest to fix the deal.

Debashish Dutta, key figure at the 2015 I-League champions and reports suggest that the talks are held with many parties and it will be not fair to reveal name as to who they have had a discussion with.

Venkatesh S. Mysore, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Khan’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment, has already deliberated multiple summits with Dutta and Srinjoy Bose, another key members in the upper echelons of the current Federation Cup champions’ management.

It is vital to note that Mysore also holds the position of CEO at the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, the Kolkata Knight Riders.

For SRK, wanting to own a football team, specifically from the Bengal capital, is not new and it has been a long-unfulfilled urge.

“I will say something which is unfortunate and sad for me. I really wanted to be a part of the Indian Super League (ISL) and I wanted to own a football team but there was no way that I would have got Kolkata and if I can’t have Kolkata I can’t have any other city,” revealed SRK, in October, 2014.

“I was offered every other city but I said I won’t do it. If I can’t have Kolkata as a football team then I won’t play football for life,” he concluded, at the time.

It is known that Mohun Bagan were actively seeking a new patron-in-chief, owing to the financial instability they were under.

Anything and everything for the development should be made way for.
