Shah Rukh Khan to be banned from stadium

22 May – Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is facing the possibility of being banned from ever entering a stadium in Mumbai for instigating a fight.

According to Masala, Khan was attending an Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket game between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium last Wednesday, where the incident happened.

After routing the Indians, Khan was said to be drunk and started to cause a ruckus with security personnel of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).

"He misbehaved and abused the MCA security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match. We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future," said MCA treasurer Ravi Savant.

Savant added that the association has decided to file a case against the 46-year-old Khan, who is also a co-owner of the Knight Riders, and to slap with him a lifetime ban from ever entering the stadium.

Several days later, Khan himself responded the allegations, insisting that he was not drunk during the incident and explained the reasons for him to act aggressively.

"I was not drunk, I had gone to pick up my children. The officials were extremely aggressive. I just got angry but I left after that. I said a few things in anger. I was one and they were 20-25 officials and they were extremely rude. When I tried to answer them, they hid behind others," he said at a press conference.

"To be abusive to fans or audience that's not me. They manhandled little girls. I would not deny that I was abusive but it started that this gentleman came from behind to say something in Marathi which I cannot repeat. I asked him to speak in Hindi. There was nothing illegal, I was not on the pitch. I know the rules," he added.

Khan said that he would be writing a letter to complain on the behaviour of the security personnel and the language that was used.
