Shahrukh KhanTerming his team Kolkata Knight Riders' smashing victory over Delhi Daredevils "wonderful", an exuberant Shahrukh Khan felt elated to "return back" to the "city of joy" for the opening match of the sixth edition of Indian Premier League.

"Yea it's wonderful the whole team has fared. They are all here and they have been looking forward to carrying on from where they left off.

"What makes me even happier is that we had the opening ceremony here and the city which has been so kind to us for so many years, we could return back what we are best at, which is entertainment," Khan told a TV channel at the end of the match between defending champions KKR and Delhi Daredevils at Eden Gardens here Wednesday.

Khan and Bollywood's leading ladies Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif had enthralled over 50,000 spectators at a glitzy IPL-6 inaugural ceremony at Kolkata's Salt Lake stadium Tuesday.

The superstar celebrated KKR's emphatic six-wicket win over a depleted Delhi Daredevils with a victory lap with Padukone in tow, around the Eden Gardens arena.

"I get so much happiness and love from the city of joy, to be honest. I have experienced lot of goodness and niceness in life but what I get in Kolkata, KKR gets in Kolkata, all our friends, my children, our family, the whole KKR team -we feel so happy. I think we owe it to the city that we share some joy some energy whatever little in our small way we do," Khan said.
