Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan's proposed deal to buy stake in I-League Dempo Sports Club is reportedly "dying out," as he is "finding it difficult to attend" football matches as required by a clause, according to the PTI. Dempo Sports Club Owner Srinivas Dempo said that "the deal may not materialise, as Shah Rukh has no time to attend the matches, which was a crucial understanding in the deal." The club had approached Shah Rukh, who is the co-owner of Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders, "to pick up a stake in the club," which was the winner of last year's I-League championship. Dempo said, "The proposal is still in the pipeline. Officially it has not been called off" (PTI, 1/7).
