Shah Rukh banned from entering Wankhede for five years by MCA

Shah Rukh banned from entering Wankhede for five years by MCAMumbai -- Despite he vehemently denied allegations of misbehaving with Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials, Bollywood superstar and KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan has been banned from entering the Wankhede Stadium for five years. MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh told reporters that this strict decision was taken unanimously in the managing committee meeting to send out a clear message that any kind of misbehaviour will not be tolerated irrespective of the social status of the accused. "If rules are violated, action will be taken. It does not depend who the individual is. It's a message to everyone whosoever he or she may be that stern action will be taken if there is any misbehaviour," Deshmukh said. Rejecting Shah Rukhs claim that the star has abused the security staff only after he "manhandled" some children, including his kids, he said, "How can he go inside the ground without proper accreditation. Even I can't go inside the ground if not invited for presentation ceremony". "We have handed a five-year ban on him and it was a unanimous decision. It applies to any match whether domestic or international at the Wankhede," he added. However, IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla has said that the final decision in this regard will be taken by the BCCI. The incident happened on Wednesday night, when King Khan tried to enter into the stadium after congratulating his team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for registering a win against Mumbai Indian. He allegedly pushed a security guard and misbehaved with MCA officials when he was stopped from entering the stadium but the actor had dismissed all the allegations and also refused to apologise from the MCA officials. "They should apologise to me," Shah Rukh had said. He also alleged that the staff at the stadium misbehaved with children including little girls. "It won't change my life if I am not allowed into the stadium," SRK said.
