The Indian Women’s Hockey team won everyone’s hearts with their commendable performance at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics 2020. Although they could not secure a medal but they won lots of accolade from everyone in the country, including Shah Rukh Khan. Now, the coach for India’s women’s hockey team, Sjoerd Marijne, has a great offer for SRK. After Shah Rukh wrote a motivational message to the hockey team after they lost their match against Great Britain, Marijne replied that it’s time for Chak De! India 2.
Marijne tweeted, "Thank you @srk for all the love ! It's great to have support from the best in Bollywood. It's time for Chak De part 2, what say?" Though Sjoerd shared the tweet for Shak Rukh, he tagged a different handle.” SRK had written, “Heartbreak!!! But all reasons to hold our heads high. Well played Indian Women’s Hockey Team. You all inspired everyone in India. That itself is a victory.”
