Maharashtra Congress writes to MCA to allow Shah Rukh Khan at Wankhede

Mumbai: The Maharashtra Congress unit has written to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) asking them to allow actor Shah Rukh Khan into the Wankhede Stadium for Tuesday's IPL match of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

KKR is to take on the Mumbai Indians but team owner Shah Rukh Khan can't attend the match after the MCA wrote a letter to the Churchgate Police station, asking them to keep him away from Wankhede stadium.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Police says that allowing Shah Rukh into the premises of Wankhede stadium is an internal matter of the MCA.

The Bollywood superstar was banned for five years from entering MCA premises, including the Wankhede Stadium, by the Association's Managing Committee, headed by the late Vilasrao Deshmukh, on May 18, 2012 after he was involved in a skirmish with security staff and officials of the cricket body following his team's victory over Mumbai Indians two nights earlier.

Shah Rukh had denied misbehaving with the staff and said that he had reacted after his daughter was 'manhandled' by them.
