entertainment Updated: Jan 09, 2010 12:47 IST

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan aka Chak De India's Kabir Khan feels awful for Indian hockey players revolting against the establishment for their unpaid dues and has tweeted his disgust at the latest crisis to rock the national sport.

Khan, widely praised for bringing the pathetic state of Indian hockey into limelight with his portrayal of a disgraced player who goes on to become a celebrated coach in the 2007 blockbuster Chak De India, supported the revolting players in his latest tweet.

"(I) feel awful for the Indian hockey team. To play for the country...national sport and have to ask for salary and we complain we don't win gold (medals)," Khan, who himself was a hockey player before becoming an actor, said on his 'Twitter' page.

Indian hockey has plunged into a crisis with players boycotting the ongoing World Cup preparatory camp in Pune for an indefinite period in protest against non-payment of their dues.
