Shah Rukh Khan is beaming with pride for Team India and took to Twitter to share a heartfelt message after their World Cup victory. The superstar posted a touching note following the team’s celebratory parade in Mumbai. Team India clinched the T20 World Cup title by defeating South Africa in the final match held in Barbados on Saturday.

In his tweet, Shah Rukh Khan expressed his joy and pride, saying,

“Seeing the boys so happy and emotional fills my heart with pride…. As Indians, this is such an amazing moment – to see our boys take us to such great heights!!! Love you all my Team India… and now dance away all night long. Boys in Blue take away all the blues! Big Congratulations to the @BCCI, @JayShah and the entire support staff that has worked tirelessly behind the scenes so that our boys could soar!!”

Team India returned to India on Thursday, having been delayed in Barbados due to Hurricane Beryl. Upon their return, they were greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, reunited with their families, and then headed to Mumbai for a grand parade along Marine Drive and a celebration at Wankhede Stadium.

Captain Rohit Sharma and star batter Virat Kohli proudly lifted the T20 World Cup 2024 trophy, showcasing it to the throngs of fans lining the parade route.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah and vice president Rajiv Shukla accompanied the players on the celebratory bus. Players wrapped themselves in the Tricolour, with Virat Kohli, Kuldeep Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal among those donning the national flag during the victory journey.

The team concluded their celebrations at Wankhede Stadium.
