Shahrukh takes an IPL break to cast his voteBollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will take a break from following his Kolkata Knight Riders team in the Indian Premier League tournament being played across South Africa to cast his vote in the Indian elections. Having politely declined earlier offers to join political rallies of any South African parties in the run-up to the elections in South Africa last Wednesday, which was overwhelmingly won by the African National Congress (ANC), Khan will head back to India on Wednesday (April 29), together with his family, wife Gauri and children Aryan and Suhana. Khan had reportedly been approached by ANC leaders in Durban prior to the first IPL games there a few days before the elections.Other IPL team owners Preity Zinta of the Kings XI Punjab and Shilpa Shetty of the Rajasthan Royals had reportedly also declined offers to appear at political rallies. Zinta said they had to maintain their political neutrality, just as they did in India. None of the Bollywood stars would comment on the political mantle that has been assumed by one of their ilk, Sanjay Dutt, who is embroiled in a controversy with his participation in the Indian elections.Dutt had been widely publicised as putting in an appearance at an ANC rally in Durban last month, but failed to appear, citing personal problems. Khan said he had warned his team that if they did well in his absence, he would return; if not, he would be shouting at them from India.
