MCA Lifts Wankhede Ban On Shahrukh


Mumbai: Giving Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan a reason to rejoice the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has ended the five year long ban imposed on the actor barring him from entering the Wankhede Stadium. The decision was taken in a Managing Committee meeting on Sunday.

Khan was banned from entering the Wankhede in May 2012 for five years after a scuffle and heated altercation with a security guard and the MCA officials following an IPL game in which KKR beat the Mumbai Indians.

 Ahead of its Managing Committee meeting on Sunday, however, a certain section in the MCA wanted that the ban, which was supposed to end in 2017, to be lifted a couple of years earlier itself, since SRK has already served a substantial period of it (three years) 'respectfully' without trying to enter the stadium at any stage.
