Kolkata also unveiled their promo video for the tournament featuring the super star of India, Shahrukh Khan. The song is titled “KKR hai tiyar”. The song highlights local traditions of Kolkata and contemporary practices. There is a perfect balance of emotions and one can’t take their eyes off the video once they start viewing it. All the key players of Kolkata are also part of the promo, these include Uthappa, Dinesh Kartik and Shubhman Gill. The tagline is really catchy and one is hooked to it even after the video ends.

Reaction on Twitter

As soon as KKR’s new kit and promo were released, millions of KKR fans started sharing their opinion about it. Some loved it while others didn’t like it a lot. However, it did get an overwhelming response on Twitter.

It was an instant hit for some fans.

Others expressed their hope that Indian wicket keeper gives an outstanding performance in this year’s IPL and makes his way through to the World Cup 2019.

For some fans, the jersey seemed to be very repetitive and they thought there should have been something new added to it.

For some, it was a big disappointment too.

Coming to the official promo, many loved it, and promised their support till the very end:


Both the video and the jersey are super attractive but the million dollar question is whether their performance in IPL 12 will be as amazing? Kolkata has already won the championship twice before under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir and their past performances have been highly consistent too, it is yet to see whether they can continue with the same form under a new leader or will it be a setback?
