A furious Mumbai Cricket Association might have banned Shah Rukh Khan after an alleged brawl between him and its officials, but IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla on Thursday said a final decision on the matter would only be taken after getting the version of all the involved parties.


The MCA has lodged a police complaint against Kolkata Knight Riders IPL franchise co-owner Shah Rukh Khan for his alleged misbehaviour Wednesday night at the Wankhede Stadium and has decided to ban him for life from entering the premises.

Shukla was guarded in his take on the matter.

"I will take the version of the MCA, Shah Rukh Khan and the police before talking about the issue," he told reporters.

"The decision on ban is taken by the Working Committee so I will speak to MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh on this. I have to take the version of all the parties involved and then speak," Shukla added.

The Bollywood star had an altercation with the security and officials of the MCA after the Knight Riders had swamped Mumbai Indians, according to MCA treasurer Ravi Savant.

"He misbehaved and abused the MCA security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match (between KKR and Mumbai Indians). We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future," said Savant, who alleged that the actor was in a totally inebriated state.
