Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has finally found a taker in the IPL franchise – Rajasthan Royals! The champions of the inaugural IPL season have shown faith in the cricketing skills of ‘Mr Perfectionist’ and expressed their desire to include him in their playing eleven.
Joining the banter between Aamir Khan and Star Sports experts during the ongoing IPL 2022, Rajasthan Royals shared a post on their social media handle and claimed the actor will be in their playing eleven. The IPL franchise shared a photoshopped image from Aamir’s iconic movie Lagaan and wrote ‘Aamir Khelega (Aamir will play)’.

In response to RR’s warm gesture, Aamir came up with a video to thank the franchise in his witty style. He said that he will surely join RR in the nets next season and wished them the best of luck for their IPL 2022 Qualifier 1 match against Gujarat Titans (GT).
Humbled with Rajasthan Royals’ gesture, Aamir came up with a video response on his social media handle and thanked the franchise. The actor, in his witty style, went on to claim that he’ll join their dugout next year and even sent his best wishes for the franchise ahead of the Playoffs. He, however, promised to play for the franchise next year.
The ever witty Aamir said on his social media post, “Thank you, Rajasthan Royals for believing in me and offering a spot in your playing eleven. I am touched. But the thing is, your team is already very strong this year and if I join you guys, then you’ll get unbeatable. You have Jos Buttler, who is going after the Orange Cap, and then you have Yuzi Chahal, who is chasing the Purple Cap. But I am an all-rounder. If I play for you this year, I’ll snap both the caps and both of them will lose their respective awards. So, I will join you guys next year and we’ll practice together in the nets. We’ll Halla Bol together. Also, I convey my best wishes to you guys for the Playoffs.”
