SRK banned from Wankhede for 5 yrs

Terming as "unfortunate" the spat between Shahrukh Khan and Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials, Union minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday advised the Bollywood superstar to be a "little more calmer".

"He 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.

Abdullah said Khan should be "little more calmer".

"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.

On arrest of Royal Challengers Bangalore cricketer Luke Pomersbach on charges of molestation, Abdullah said, "Action must be taken against them. So that it becomes a thing for all the world to see that India means business, and India is not going to tolerate such behaviour from anybody."

Asked whether such things bring a bad name for IPL, Abdullah said, "It gives the nation a bad name. IPL is only a small thing."
