Last four seasons of IPL saw the Kolkata Kinght Riders languishing at the bottom of the table.
But this time co-owner Shah Rukh Khan's team, KKR, came back with a vengeance and lifted the cup.
Co-owner Shah Rukh Khan couldn't contain his happiness and danced his way to the ground.
He hugged, cheered and congratulated each member of his team.

Throughout the tournament SRK was accompanied by his daughter Suhana and her group of friends. Shah Rukh hoisted his daughter Suhana aloft in the stands and later performed cartwheels for the Chennai crowd.
Suhana and her friends proved to be a lucky charm for the KKR team. And SRK called them the 'official cheerleaders'.
In all the excitement the charming SRK did not forget his wife Gauri Khan and introduced her as the 'sexiest cheer-leader' ever.
Gauri was seen in the KKR stand for the first time this season. When Gauri was asked why she missed out the previous games of Kolkata Knight Riders, she replied that she had decided that she would attend the game only if Kolkatta Knight Riders reached the finals.
Throughout the match, SRK could hardly hide his emotions and was on his feet all through the match. He was overjoyed and overcome by emotions when his team won after his player hit a boundary when his team required 3 runs to win out of 3 balls.
Shah Rukh also apologised for his recent misbehaviour with the Mumbai Cricket Association officials and also thanked all his supporters.
Shah Rukh's business partner and actress Juhi Chawla was seen praying for her team during the nailing biting moments.
Riteish Deshkmukh, Genelia D'souza, Trisha, Pradeep Dadha, Hema Sethuraman and Shwetha Raheja were in the middle of the KKR's stands. A star-studded after match party has been already planned by the King Khan at Prabhu Deva's residence. He was joined by Akshay Kumar to celebrate the win.
Congratulatory messages for KKR and SRK were pouring in on Twitter from all corners.
