The Badshah of Bollywood was in fine form — he taught cricketer Adam Gilchrist Hindi (Main tumhaare bachche ki maa banne waali hoon), got him and cricketer Yuvraj Singh to wear Arabian waist belts and dance, and put actress Shilpa Shetty and cricketer Yusuf Pathan in a tight spot. At the first-ever IPL Awards Night, held in Mumbai on Friday night, master of ceremonies SRK had the audience in splits.

In between glittering performances, the actor even cracked jokes about the Kochi-IPL controversy.When Yuvraj Singh came on stage, Shah Rukh asked him to teach him how to “smooth talk” women, to which Yuvi replied, “First abandon your friendship with Karan Johar.”Actress Katrina Kaif danced to a medley of hit songs from her films. When actress Priyanka Chopra came on stage in black hot pants and a red top, the lights were rearranged to spell out her initials ‘PC’.
