Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has been spotted in Dubai.

The beloved actor is often in the UAE and this time he's here to watch the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket. He was spotted in the stands at the game between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

The Don star is a part-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders, who were the winning team on the night. The IPL shared a video of Khan in the stands, along with his wife Gauri Khan and son Aryan Khan, 22.

Dressed for the occasion, Khan was wearing a KKR purple mask, a purple beanie and a white hoodie with the team's logo on it.

The actor tweeted from the game, saying he was "happy that all the kids in the team got a good match and ended up on the winning side".

He also retweeted Indian cricket hero Sachin Tendulkar, saying, "The great man has spoken".

Following Kolkata's victory, the team tweeted a photo of Khan in his team mask, joking that they were "sure there's a big smile behind that mask!"

Also at the game was former Australian cricketer Shane Warne, the mentor of the Rajasthan Royals, the team he played for between 2008 and 2011.

"Disappointing performance by the boys tonight – but all teams will have one or two of these games throughout the tournament! As long as we bounce back Saturday," Warne tweeted following the game.
