Shahrukh Khan banned for 5 years
The Mumbai Cricket Association on Friday banned Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner and superstar Shahrukh Khan from entering Wankhede stadium for five years for misbehaving with its officials. This decision was unanimously taken by MCA Managing Committee in a meeting today. King Khan entered into an ugly spat with security guard after KKR win when he tried to enter into the ground with 40 children.
"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," MCA president Vilasrao Deshmukh said in a press conference.
Khan in a statement claimed that he reacted rudely after the children was manhandled.
"How can he go inside the ground without proper accreditation? Even I can't go inside the ground if not invited for presentation ceremony," Deshmukh said.
"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 said.
