The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on Friday banned Shah Rukh Khan from entering Wankhede Stadium for five years. The decision came after SRK misbehaved with officials after Wednesdays game between Kolkata and Mumbai.
A guard was caught manhandling SRK’s daughter and her friends who were playing during the game and SRK reacted strongly, which created chaos as cricket officials and SRK’s bodyguards joined in a heated exchange of words.

Union Minister Farooq Abdullah described the altercation as an unfortunate incident.
“He (SRK) carries a lot of weight on his shoulders. His behaviour matters to the industry tremendously, and to every young and old in India. Whatever happened, its unfortunate,” he told reporters outside the Parliament
“I hope that his temper will calm down. As far as BCCI action or the Wankhede Stadium is concerned, I think they should sit down and find a middle way out,” he said.
However B-town came in full support for SRK, saying his whatever he did was justified and that any father would react like that.
Anurag Basu tweeted: “SRK’s behaviour is completely justified, I’d have smashed their heads if it was my daughter.”
Karan Johar tweeted that SRK is one of “the best fathers I know and protective about every child…he was being just that….a protective parent!!!”
