Shah Rukh’s ban continues; actor barred from attending KKR match
Shah Rukh Khan has been known for keeping his cool and not indulging in public altercations or disputes. However, Bollywood’s King Khan will not be able to attend the May 14th interesting encounter of KKR with Mumbai Indians, on account of his feud with security officials 3 years ago.
Shah Rukh Khan had indulged in an ugly fight with members of the MCA (Mumbai Cricket Association) and the security officials stationed at the cricket ground. After KKR routed Mumbai Indians by 32 runs, a large group of children accompanying Khan tried entering the stadium’s field to play but were stopped by security personnel at the boundary line. Khan said the guards “manhandled” some children to hold them back and “touched little girls in the garb of security”. This caused a heated exchange between Shah Rukh and the security officials and abuses were hurled as well as shoving took place.
Things took a turn for the worst when the MCA filed a report with the police that Khan had been drunk and had abused a girl. Shah Rukh denied the allegations and stated that since the officials were touching girls, the act infuriated him. Following the incident, Khan was banned by the MCA for a total of five years and hence, the star actor cannot enter the stadium in Thursday’s encounter.
Khan is busy these days, shooting for his two upcoming films Raees and Dilwale. For Raees, the actor will be seen opposite Pakistani actress Mahira Khan for the very first time, amid hopeful expectations of fans in Pakistan that the film would do good. Also, Khan will star opposite his famed co-star from the 90s Kajol in Dilwale.
Shah Rukh might be the king of bollywood, but outside of the Indian film industry there are rules and regulations that one must adhere to. Hence, better luck to Shah Rukh for the next game, one he could witness from the stands!
