The Mumbai Cricket Association officials, who had imposed a five-year ban on Shah Rukh Khan, are likely to discuss later on Monday the apology rendered by the Bollywood superstar at Chennai on Sunday night for his misbehaviour at the Wankhede Stadium on May 16.

An MCA source maintained that the principal owner of new IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders had not apologised directly to the association, but pointed out that at least the actor had conceded that he had not behaved properly.

"He has not apologised to the MCA, has he? Anyway he had at least admitted he has not behaved in a proper manner. There is a managing committee meeting (of MCA) this evening to be headed by president Vilasrao Deshmukh. Let's see what happens in it," the source added.

Surrounded by his wife and daughter and other kids, the Bollywood superstar said after KKR's maiden IPL triumph in Chennai, "I want to apologise to the kids for my misbehaviour at MCA. I apologise to all who saw me differently. I shouldn't have behaved in that manner. But today my team has won, so I guess, all you fans should forgive me. We have won at last."

Earlier, the "unanimous" decision to ban Khan was taken at the MCA Managing Committee meeting convened on May 18 urgently to discuss action on the actor who was involved in a skirmish with the security and officials of the association after KKR's victory over Mumbai Indians here on May 16.

"We have handed a five-year ban on him and it was a unanimous decision. It applies to any match whether domestic or international at the Wankhede," MCA chief Deshmukh had told a press conference after the decision was taken.

"If rules are violated, action will be taken. It does not depend who the individual is. It's a message to everyone whosoever he or she may be that stern action will be taken if there is any misbehaviour," he had said.
