Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will finally be able to enter the Wankhede Stadium after the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) lifted the ban it imposed on him three years ago. He was originally banned for five years.

The Bollywood actor and owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) got himself banned from entering stadium in May 2012 after he misbehaved with the security staff soon after a match between KKR and Mumbai Indians.

MCA vice-president Ashish Selhar made the announcement stating the managing committee of MCA has decided to lift the ban it imposed three years ago on Shah Rukh Khan. The proposal for listing of the ban was put forward by MCA president Sharad Pawar and Selhar.

“The ban was imposed on him for many years, so today we thought it would not look good to bar somebody like this. So we decided it should be lifted. Now Shah Rukh is open to enter Wankhede”, Selhar said.

MCA officials had also lodged a complaint against the 49-year-old actor at the Marine Drive police station saying that he was drunk and abused the officials.

Shah Rukh had denied that he misbehaved and said that he reacted after some children, including his own, being manhandled by the stadium security staff.

The MCA in 2014 had offered to temporarily lift the ban on the actor in what was a failed attempt at bringing back the IPL final from Bengaluru to Mumbai. That offer, however, was just for the final.
