Shah Rukh Khan’s T20 cricket team has made a good start this season, but looks like it will soon be missing the actor’s support on the ground, as he will be busy with other commitments.

A source close to Shah Rukh reveals that the actor is yet to finish Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express, and so he might not be able to attend every match that his team plays.

“Some of them might clash with his shoot. He has just completed a schedule of the film; the next one will start soon,” says the source. The source further adds that Shah Rukh will most likely attend all the matches that will be played in Mumbai.

“But he will miss out on the matches that will be held in other cities. If has the time, he will try to fly to the location just before the match and return to Mumbai the same night,” says the source. A highly placed official in the production house informs us that SRK hasn’t asked for a change in his shooting dates either. “He is making sure that the shoot is completed by the end of May, as the film needs to release on August 8,” says the source.
