Shah Rukh Khan in trouble over stadium skirmish

The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has lodged a formal police complaint against Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders and Bollywood superstar, over an alleged skirmish with security guards following Knight Riders' victory over the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. The MCA will meet to discuss what action is to be taken against Shah Rukh, who has denied being drunk and disorderly.

Late last night, MCA officials went to the Marine Drive Police Station to lodge a police complaint against him. Shah Rukh is being accused of trying to walk on to the field of play after the game. MCA treasurer Ravi Savant told PTI that Shah Rukh had "misbehaved and abused security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match. We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future."

Savant's statements about a life ban for Shah Rukh could not be corroborated with the IPL governing council chairman Rajeev Shukla telling reporters, "I will take the version of the MCA, Shah Rukh Khan and the police before talking about the issue. The decision on the 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."

Shah Rukh, who spoke to the media on Thursday afternoon, denied he had misbehaved or was drunk but said he was reacting to the "obnoxious" and "unpardonable" behaviour of officials at the stadium. He said he had not been present at the match but had gone there after it was over to pick up a large group of his children and their friends.

He said he saw security guards manhandling the children and when he objected a group of officials came over and the altercation started. "I said a few things in anger. I was one and they were 20-25 officials and they were extremely rude. When I tried to answer them, they hid behind others," the actor said. "There was nothing illegal, I was not on the pitch. I know the rules."

Asked about the possibility of a ban by the MCA, Shah Rukh said, "If this is the kind of behaviour meted out to people then I would not go there. There were people rushing at me aggressively. I think it's unpardonable that you manhandle kids in the name of security."

Savant told the news channel Headlines Today that Shah Rukh had tried to enter the stadium "after everything was over" and when asked to leave by the security guard Shah Rukh had "manhandled" him. It was alleged that Shah Rukh was "continuously using foul, filthy language towards officials who tried to pacify him and make him understand." An MCA member who also happened to be an assistant commissioner of police, was also seen trying to silence Shah Rukh.

Savant said all that was left at the moment was to put the proposed ban on paper and get its formalities completed, with a majority support with the MCA. He said that Shah Rukh had come to the ground well after the presentation ceremony and without any accreditation. "He had flouted all the rules", Savant said.

"Some unprovoked incident that took place, and foul language was used," Ratnakar Shetty, the BCCI's chief administrative officer, said. "MCA officials are angry. We will try to find out what has happened. Definitely, the BCCI will look at what the MCA has to say."

    MCA should give punishment to Guard, Not Shahrukh. Sharuk is well known person. owner and great actor.

    I DO NOT THINK SRK SHOULD GET ANY SPECIAL TREATMENT BUT MY BIG QUESTION TO THE LAW ENFORCING AGENCY AND TO THE CRICKET ASSOCIATION IS WHAT IS WRONG IF A TEAM OWNER GOES TO THE FIELD TO CELEBRATE OR FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE WHEN THE MATCH IS OVER. TO ME IT IS A WILFUL ACTION BY POLICE AND THE CRICKET ASSOCIATION TO HUMILIATE THE OWNER OF A TEAM. IT IS AS SIMPLE.

  • on May 18, 2012, 14:23 GMT

    As much as we understand that celebrities are human too, there cannot be any way around the fact that their behaviorism set a benchmark for many of their fans to follow. I think that it is high time that SRK and all other celebrities woke up to their responsibilities. If they want to be applauded and receive acclaim for their work (whatever that might be) they must take responsibility for the role model that they provide. More often than not the downfall begins with one small episode of brashness and escalates to unforgiving proportions. Dont believe me... Look at Tiger Woods

    Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, Christina Aguilera and many, many others are all guilty of setting bad examples at one time or another. When will these people wake up to the fact that whatever they do will be copied by countless hundreds, thousands, even millions of people.

  • NP_NY on May 18, 2012, 13:11 GMT

    First, I cannot believe there are people commenting that because SRK is who he is he should be treated differently! Second, SRK the actor is different from SRK the real person. On screen he is this witty nice guy and people just think that is the real person too. Being who SRK is, he has the opporuntity to explain his side of the story (which I don't buy at all) but who is going to give the poor security guard who bravely stood up to him, a chance! To me the security guard is the real hero, SRK is just a poser with a lot of money.

  • Adeel9 on May 18, 2012, 8:53 GMT

    Anyone would use foul language and stuff if you misbehave with children. Besides his kid was hurt in the knee due to officials. So what SRK did was right and anyone whose child had been hurt by guards would do the same.

  • crazyuddie on May 18, 2012, 7:07 GMT

    Even assuming SRK was there to pick up those children, the question is why was he so late? AND to whose oversight were the children left that they could be manhandled? (Assuming they were manhandled.)

    Either way this does not show SRK in a good light.

    And by the way, all those people saying Mumbai sore losers -- SRK is a resident of Mumbai. So you tell me what is more likely, that guards were upset over Mumbai's loss, or SRK was behaving badly after his team's win. Compare their relative investments in each team. Frankly, what do the guards care? And in any circumstances, short of something exceptional (such as star bad behavior), why would guards be disturbing a celebrity. Those saying he was targeted, simply do not know what they're talking about. Have you seen the kind of treatment movie stars get in India?

  • Nipaos on May 18, 2012, 6:33 GMT

    Comparing SRK with Rajnikanth is like comparing Sachin with sreesanth

  • agent001 on May 18, 2012, 0:29 GMT

    MCA are a sore loser. Ban SRK from the ground, then as franchise owner he can refuse to have his team play at the MCA stadium. MCA will be the biggest loser. I thought only the airport security in the USA did not recognize him, did not know that all those bollywood movie watchers will not recognize and understand that he was picking up some children.

  • TonyRai on May 17, 2012, 22:07 GMT

    Comon! Shame on u MCA....

    its nothing but harassing him intentionally, who doesn't know SRK? it was the expression of disappointment of MCA, very funny!

  • on May 17, 2012, 18:58 GMT

    SRK is usually known for his wit and humour.... MCA seems to be just sore losers with an opportunity to went their own anger and frustration... NO SRK means NO IPL thereafter for SRK Fans... try stopping Rajni sir from entering any stadium down south, his fans will go crazy... LOL.. and try stopping SRK.

  • on May 17, 2012, 16:18 GMT

    This is the frustration of MCA which explored after the match. SRK was just doing his job to guiding younger-ones. But MCA and others took it otherwise.

  • Lord_Dravid on May 17, 2012, 15:59 GMT

    if this was an ordinary person the MCA wouldn't be making a such a comotion and fuss out of it..shah rukh would never do something silly like this to damage his reputation..clearly MCA was unhappy that mumbai lost and it became hard for them to hide their emotions lol. And a life ban aswell lol what did he commint a murder or something?lol

  • on May 17, 2012, 14:38 GMT

    As it my first year of watching IPL cricket ,i dont know too much but wat i do know is that some people will do anything to get attenation ,losing team supporters are using this to disgrace Shahrukh ,he's got to much to lose and the finger pointers have too much to gain . If Shahrukh leaves India then wat did Gandhi stand for fight his country and his people ,fairness. Shahrukh allways promoted cricket to all nationals and backgrounds ,were as others were quick to ban players from neighbouring countries, if he's to be banned then so should others (owners ) lets keep it fair for all plus since when has cricket not been a drama

  • CaptainKool on May 17, 2012, 14:27 GMT

    MCA was frustrated as Mumbai lost the match and Shahrukh was not even at the stadium but his children. He came after the match. Cops need to be well-mannered. They can't just manhandled any children like that and SRK is accepting that he did use harsh words but come on who won't if their children got treated like that? SRK is always humble and honest. If they ban him, it will be just ridiculous on part of MCA. SRK, the best. Period.

  • on May 17, 2012, 13:49 GMT

    there was no problem with sharukh.mca was angry because they lost the game

  • on May 17, 2012, 13:49 GMT

    No he will not be banned ..as usual things will be hushed and patched out....

  • SLMaster on May 17, 2012, 13:45 GMT

    Here is the ugly side and truth of IPL. IPL is here to destroy cricket. It will take time to come out. May be 10 years. These are short term and not best for Indians as well as other who participate. It is exactly what happened to Europian union. Results are coming now. It is same with IPL. One word for all "MONEY." These type money grabers doesn't last long.

  • xylo on May 17, 2012, 13:38 GMT

    Finally! It is obvious from the photo attached to this report that he was definitely drunk. It is already terrible that the entertainment world is taking over cricket. What next? Alcohol barons to take over as well? Oh no, Mallya is already taking care of that.

  • on May 17, 2012, 13:29 GMT

    MCA is right ONLY IF the event unfolded according to their description. IF SRK's story was the reality, then it shows the inhuman nature of the egotistic mentality of some (Only the people who were involved), who bare office and work at MCA. >>> MCA's story seems to be flawed, as SRK himself points out, only the pitch area is legally restricted for outsiders, after a match. >>> If MCA could THE Great SRK like this, think for a minute about what could be the fate of a common...

  • Mr.CHAMP on May 17, 2012, 13:06 GMT

    YOU CANT CLAP WITH ONE HAND !!!! I THINK MCA WAS FRUSTRATED AFTER THE LOSS AND WHEN SRK TRIED TO CELEBRATE HIS TEAM'S VICTORY THEY LOSE THEIR TEMPER ON HIM.I HAVE SEEN SRK COMING OUT IN THE FIELD AFTER THE MATCH MANY TIMES THIS SEASON AND THEY NEVER HAD A PROBLEM AND WHY IS MCA SO ANGRY ABOUT IT.WE CAN EASILY MAKE OUT FROM THE PICTURE THAT SRK IS ANGRY LIKE HELL AND THIS TYPE OF ANGER DOES NOT COME SIMPLE BEECAUSE OF ATTITUDE(SPECIALLY WHEN HE IS IN THE WINNING SIDE SO THERE IS NO CHANCE OF ANY FRUSTRATION COMING OUT), IT HAVE COME BECAUSE THE GUARDS HAVE MISBEHAVED WITH HIM .ITS SO CLEAR THAT THEY COULD NOT BEAR LOSS !!!!

    BEFORE MCA BANS SRK I THINK SRK SHOULD BAN THIS MCA FROM HIS LIFE AND GIVE A TIGHT SLAP ON THEM.

  • Ammy_rd on May 17, 2012, 13:06 GMT

  • on May 17, 2012, 13:00 GMT

    Loook if I hire a banquet hall and the security guards misbehave with my children wont I be angry. Sharukh is the owner of the team. The 9 teams have hired the stadium for a function (IPL is entertainment not Sports hence it pays entertainment tax). The MCA has rented out the hall/stadium and now they want to do dadagiri. I would say from now on the IPL should make a rule - no free passes for MCA, DDCA or any other CA. You want to watch the match buy a ticket else dont come to the stadium on the day its been rented out. And yes Deshmukh needs to apologize to Shahrukh

  • shaikh..mdarif on May 17, 2012, 13:00 GMT

    one sided story.would MCA behave the way if it was Ambani?????

  • DnyaneshParab on May 17, 2012, 12:58 GMT

    What is Cricket? for Indian People, specially in Sub-Continent, It is Six, Four, Run, Wicket, and Glamourization etc. Probably SRK and most of the franchise's owners look Representative of these type of people. But Cricket is a game of Psychology, It is a game of Science (Physics) and Environment, It is a game of Physical Fitness, It is a game of Statistics and Records, It is a collective or Team Effort and finally, It is a game of Gentlemen, We, the Indian People know only Stats and Records, so that's why most of the times, we have lost, gets anger or win gets so much excited.

  • on May 17, 2012, 12:53 GMT

    Do not give any comment, look who is on right on wroung, shahrukh or security. some time security is showing their superity for the wroung publicity.Shahrukh is a not child.He may understand situation un necessary he will not involve this kind of cheep activities, its sure bombaya securities has lost their petience due to lossed the cricket match from Kolkatta Night ridders.thats why this things has happend.

  • on May 17, 2012, 12:50 GMT

    SRK has been the owner for KKR from so long and don think he is not aware of the rules. Its not the first time for him. He is a gentle man and nice person. MCA cant just give a statement on SRK like this. In fact they should ban holding matches in wankhede stadium if the security does not how to deal with people.

  • Reagos on May 17, 2012, 12:47 GMT

    @BalajiBalaji, your analysis of team owners lack consistency. Who would you say is best to own a team, a technology executive? Owning and managing a team has nothing to do with individual characters such as SRK. He is known for such skirmish. I remember one of the movie awards where SRK did not like the presenter talking in English (the awards were held outside of India) so he jumped on to the stage and took over the mic from the presenter and started his own presentation.

  • sumantaghosh on May 17, 2012, 12:39 GMT

    SRK is an Indian and world famous actor. So what types of comments of all Indians should be toward another Indian. If all comments go against SRK I think they will be corroborators of MCA. After going through the overall tales of this story, it has become easy to find the faults of security guards. They manhandled the large group of kids who were the friends of his children. Children are comparing with cherub, they are innocent as well. So,SRK was disgusted and fed up seeing their obnoxious behaviour.This is usual. But remember and I want to mean that I don't corroborate the behaviour of SRK. He should behave well. Because here Cricket is a matter of concern not SRK's films industries. SRK should remember that is a game of modesty not the fighting place of Film Arena.

  • Gyanendra_Mishra on May 17, 2012, 12:02 GMT

    Dont' Know what was happened there last night but I surely support MCA officials, As if anything happened wrong then that must be from SRK not from the security guards, as all the security personels are there to maintain the law and order, not entertain SRK or any other celibrity come over there. And many occassion we have had heard incidences about SRK's unethical behavior. He might think that being a superstar in bollywood he feels himself as the President of INDIA.

I am sure some people trying to be in the NEWS like ...creating DRAMA with SRK.....very unfortunate as well.... Mueen ud din Hameed..Toronto

  • NP_NY on May 17, 2012, 11:17 GMT

    Good on MCA. SRK needs to understand that he is not beyond the rules or the law. The stadium security men are not stupid to confront him without reason. They all know who SRK is but they were just doing their job. India needs more of this and less hero-worship.

  • timtom on May 17, 2012, 11:10 GMT

    Many claim its a one-sided story here...What are they expecting SRK to say ? THat his guards pushed him to ground or that he just slipped of to ground or that MCA officials has created a story out of no where...He has a problem anywhere he goes ..USA , pub and god knows where. These are not mere coincidence... With his celebrity status he expects others to bend rules for him.. Shud salute the ground officials on going by the rules and stoping him...Ground is going of the feet but he is failing to realize that...

  • Varun27 on May 17, 2012, 11:10 GMT

    Security and the other officials should concentrate on other issues rather than picking on SRK . It is obvious that anyone would like to celebrate victory . Anyone like SRK would do that . Will they stop Ambani ?. :-p

  • Robin-Hood on May 17, 2012, 11:07 GMT

    SRK thinks he can do wot ever he wants being a superstar. SRK, there is law and order in this country, anyone breaks it must be punished without the persons background. Hope u will learn from wankade. THIS IS NOT A BOLLYWOOD MOVIE TRAILER FOR U.

    Life ban :-) Some kind of a Joke? Why we need to believe the story after listening to one side only. Don't we know the behaviour of our policemen and officials. Where was Nita Ambani during that time? If she was in Stadium who allowed it?But why I'm reacting to this nonsense episode and drama? Folks lets concentrate on Cricket. This is all junk. Nobody has an authority to ban anyone.

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:58 GMT

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:39 GMT

    This behavior needs to be punished.

  • RizwanKhan102 on May 17, 2012, 10:35 GMT

    Itz just becaues the Mumbai Indians have lost the game, SRK is such a nice man. I Love KKR and itz owner SRK

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:35 GMT

    Well Well, what does the rule say.No official is allowed to enter the ground after the match & presentation ceremony is over??

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:33 GMT

    MCA secretary Nitin Dalal told NDTV that Shah Rukh was "going to be banned."

  • India987 on May 17, 2012, 10:33 GMT

    Which Indian cop does not know that shah ruckh is co owner of kkr! So requiring accredition from him seems like stretch

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:31 GMT

    He should be banned.... this is not the right way to behave... he may be some big personality... but that does not mean he can do anything....

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:31 GMT

    he used to be in top news regularly. This is jst a act of promotion. Both side decided act. Nobody will ban no one, just a clear promotional act !!

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:06 GMT

    time will tell who knocks out who...since ppl are busy burying MI here, i also pray that CSK loses big time today at the hands of KXIP and Gilchrist...they have won twice already.

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:06 GMT

    its not about MI loss and @ Baundele no one is permitted even to enter the ground even if the match is over except players match officials and ground staff...

  • crindex on May 17, 2012, 10:05 GMT

    MI is run by an ameteur business woman and KKR is run by an actor . Neither of them are professional and lack business skills. Cricket in India is run by movie starts, politicians and non cricketers who have never even held a cricket bat or ball in their life.

  • on May 17, 2012, 10:04 GMT

    we r only hearing one side of the story now. mumbai lost thats y SRK was not allowed in the ground. in all the stadiums team owners are allowed....wait n watch

  • RajCSK on May 17, 2012, 10:02 GMT

    SRK is a owner what is wrong if he enters the play fields. The officials unnecessarily poked him.

  • Ramanrr114 on May 17, 2012, 10:02 GMT

    KKR is the best team so for in this IPL even compare to DD.....Mr.SRK , please be cool , Championship is yours, if you have right team combinations ...not like3 spinners and two medium pacers ...Narine , Balaji , Kallis ,Lee can defend any scores and they should be in the bowling combination ....

  • shan29 on May 17, 2012, 9:54 GMT

    Mumbai is such a bad looser. MCA taking out frustration on SRK.

    Grow up MCA members--we all understand this.

    Dont forget people pay to see these celebriteis also. Ur ticket sales only will suffer if u ban SRK. SRK cud not care any less, if u ban him

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:51 GMT

    its a foolish decision by MCA..........................

  • Rockyyyims on May 17, 2012, 9:38 GMT

    Its so unfortunate..Shahrukh khan is a great human being and role model for all...don't know what exactly happened but boy. both MI & now MCA are in the news big time..for untoward incidents..

  • anver777 on May 17, 2012, 9:35 GMT

    For a change he wants to try a negative role for his next movie.... (a rehearsal)

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:30 GMT

    Till now it's all one version we have heard. Let's wait and see what Sharukh has to say. No conflict in this world would reach the next level like this with just one sided errs. There would always be the other side to the incident.--- I am agree with Mr.Sandeep.M.J.D.

  • ejsiddiqui on May 17, 2012, 9:30 GMT

    One sided story, so can't pass the judgement.

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:29 GMT

    Yes, he should be banned for life time on wankhede.......

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:26 GMT

    I SUPPORT kkR BUT NOT " sHAHrUKH " HOW COME HE BECOME A STAR...

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:21 GMT

    Sounds strange,dont understand why was SRK stopped from entering the ground, its common to see owners coming to the ground after the matches everywhere and thanking the crowd for being there.

  • hikel on May 17, 2012, 9:19 GMT

    It is a news of disappointment that a boss of KKR has cross the line of discipline. We have ruled them as per rul.

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:17 GMT

    as long as mad film fans are there people will act like that discipline all for good nath

  • Shobbies on May 17, 2012, 9:17 GMT

    Media is known for it's preposterous and exaggerated versions of any incidents that can help them to hog the limelight... Proper investigation would be an appropriate way to tackle that...Mumbai is upset owing to such a lousy defeat and it is one way of venting their ire... Good job KKR...!!

  • v4vish on May 17, 2012, 9:15 GMT

    I wonder if the MCA would have decided on a life ban against a team owner if it was not a movie star or a celebrity.

  • asim500 on May 17, 2012, 9:10 GMT

    you have all only heard one side of the story - i cant believe someone of his stature will waste his time 'man-handling' a security guard. Life time ban : what a joke !!

  • bighit14 on May 17, 2012, 9:08 GMT

    This is a wrong behavior from a man of such a caliber. This will have a bad effect on his fans. However a big star or personality he is, he should behave well in front of anyone (unless the situation is bad). Shah Rukh should apologize and should not behave in such a manner in future.

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:08 GMT

    This is what happens when you mix cricket and bollywood hehehe :)

  • on May 17, 2012, 9:02 GMT

    he must ask sorry that is the ruls

  • avani on May 17, 2012, 9:01 GMT

    There is a huge difference between Amir Khan and other two big Khans of film industry. While the former is a legend in all aspects the latter, especially Sharukh.....oops! arrogant with lot of head weight!!!

  • on May 17, 2012, 8:59 GMT

    How can MCA ban one person,its not a private property,they can file a case,but banning Sharukh for one offence is an unfair comparison with banning football hooligans.let him be punished by the court.

  • on May 17, 2012, 8:59 GMT

    A Picture is worth a thousand words- Initially I thought it was a media hype , the above picture says is all. It is very sad and shows how quickly Stars can fall , am sure it is very difficult for fans to digest this.

    The same stars who are admired by millions and especially the younger generation(a lot of them are kids) should know their limits and behave when they are in public eye . It is a different matter what they do in their personal lives ,They have no business to behave badly during (or after) a cricket match, this is a eye opener for fans who worship the Film stars and give them a status of God.

  • on May 17, 2012, 8:57 GMT

    Banning of SRK then we will ban to see IPL or fan base 50,000 will start watching Bangladesh and Siri Lanka and soon Pakistan will also start twenty20 and that will be the best firework in the world. So forget IPL. Moreover, Indian cricketers in decline and lost treacherously to other countries recently so they are just paper tigers at home.

  • on May 17, 2012, 8:54 GMT

    he should behave like a gentleman

  • Zen21 on May 17, 2012, 8:51 GMT

    MCA to be appreciated for their stance and salute to the dutiful security! MCA is also commendable for backing up the security instead of making him a scapegoat!

  • renegade_champ on May 17, 2012, 8:45 GMT

    yeah sore loosers these MI are ...just hope rcb & csk knock them n make it to the playoffs

  • renegade_champ on May 17, 2012, 8:44 GMT

    Dude IPL 5 is the best season so far....n its been epic!

  • ansram on May 17, 2012, 8:39 GMT

    This is the price cricket has to pay for giving control to movie stars and movie makers. Let cricketers deal with cricket please.

  • Sandeep.M.J.D on May 17, 2012, 8:38 GMT

    Till now it's all one version we have heard. Let's wait and see what Sharukh has to say. No conflict in this world would reach the next level like this with just one sided errs. There would always be the other side to the incident. I'm not a Khan's supporter, but I just believe in theory.

  • Baundele on May 17, 2012, 8:35 GMT

    Why the security personnel had to obstruct him when the match was over?

  • scud23 on May 17, 2012, 8:30 GMT

    hahahahahaa.....funny and wierd to see people reacting without even knowing what exactly had happened at the scene..I am sure the sensible people will agree with me that we cannot get judgmental basing on media reports!!!

  • on May 17, 2012, 8:24 GMT

    No SRK, No Game Bombay team lost and they have found reasons to cry behind shahrukh, try to win matches bombay, dont try to cry :)

  • whyowhy on May 17, 2012, 8:21 GMT

    Remember what India had to say when SRK was held up by US Officials when entering the USA ?? same story here, I AM KHAN does not seem to be liked by officals in any country............But you cannot ban the man from entering the stadium, it will be like having a wedding ceremony without the bridegroom!!!

  • on May 17, 2012, 7:58 GMT

    he deserves to be punished ... he's damn arrogant thinking he can do or buy anything he want

  • on May 17, 2012, 7:44 GMT

    He Shld release Apology , I see this as a Good Example Stance taken by MCA, No one is Bigger Than Game

  • on May 17, 2012, 7:42 GMT

    LOL, What has Shahrukh khan to do with Cricket. he should better do acting LOL. This Indian cricket structure is a disgrace with a mix of politics and Showbiz in cricket.

  • on May 17, 2012, 7:37 GMT

    this is not good sharakuh.

    Reiterates the fact that movie stars do not belong in professional sports. We also saw Priety Zinta argue with the umpire in one of the earlier games...I am not sure if she even understands the nuances of this great game.
