"We wrote a letter to Marine Lines police station today asking them not to allow Shah Rukh Khan inside the stadium tomorrow (when Kolkata Knight Riders play Mumbai Indians). This was after the police had asked us to send a letter to that effect," MCA president Ravi Savant told reporters here.
The Bollywood superstar was banned for five years from entering MCA premises, including the Wankhede Stadium, by the Association's Managing Committee, headed by the late Vilasrao Deshmukh, on May 18 last year, after he was involved in a skirmish with security staff and officials of the cricket body following KKR's victory over MI two nights earlier.
Shah Rukh, however, denied he had misbehaved and maintained he reacted only after children, including his kids, were manhandled by the security staff at the stadium.
Meanwhile, it has been learnt that security personnel have been told by the authorities not to allow SRK inside the premises.
