He also feels there is no combination like sports and women."You have to start somewhere and this is just the beginning slowly, it will spread to more places. Specifically if you ask me, then there is no combination like sports and women. I would be really happy if it went across and women participate in it," he said.

Toyota University Cricket Championship
TUCC is a initiative to promote cricket at the university level to contribute towards the revolutionary concept of promoting young talent.
"I will be really honest... I am someone who believes professionalizing sports in this country is perhaps the most important aspect if I can any way get attached to it. I am happy that I am associated with it," Shah Rukh told reporters at the grand opening ceremony of the Toyota University Cricket Championship (TUCC).
Shah Rukh feels one need to create alternate professions for youngsters in the country and sports are the greatest profession. "Sports is perhaps the greatest profession in this country. We hope with this, many more tournaments are created. This is just the beginning," he added.
"I personally wont get time to play cricket so I don't think I will be attached to anything else but if it requires me.. I think there are so many stars in CCL, I don't think they need a smaller star like me."
