Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) decided to lift the ban on Shah Rukh Khan's entry to the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. According to a report, the decision was taken in a Managing Committee meeting of the MCA. Khan was banned from entering the Wankhede in May 2012 for five years after a scuffle and heated altercation with a security guard and the MCA officials following an IPL game in which KKR beat the Mumbai Indians. A certain section in the MCA wants that ban, which was supposed to end in 2017, to be lifted a couple of years earlier itself, since SRK has already served a substantial period of it (three years) 'respectfully' without trying to enter the stadium at any stage, the report stated.
That's how I feel. They want him back because it cost them money. When he is there, the stadium is filled, advertisers pay more etc He should, frankly, never go back. But Venky seems to be acknowledging that is NOT what is going to happen. As one of the honest teams in the IPL which is already down two teams, they need him.
