Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, the co-owner of IPL team ‘Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR), has been banned from the Wankhede Stadium for years after for having an ugly brawl with the MCA officials.

The 46-year-old actor, who is often referred to as the King of Bollywood, afterwards claimed that he lost his temper when he saw MCA officials manhandling his daughter and other children.

B’town believes Khan has done nothing wrong and the industry members used their Twitter accounts to express their feelings.

Director Anurag Basu said, “SRK’s behaviour is completely justified, I’d have smashed their heads if it was my daughter.”

“Kahaani” director Sujoy Ghosh also voiced his support for SRK, saying, “Read about the SRK incident. I think @iamsrk was very decent about the whole thing. I’d have ripped their heads off if it was my daughter (sic).”

“I’ve got first hand reports of the fracas with @iamsrk. His daughter was touched and shoved. He protected. Well done Dad!! At Wankhede, SRK was a father, not just an actor… Please don’t expect a father to apologise for protecting his baby.. Satyamev Jayate (sic),” TV actor Ronit Roy tweeted.

Shah Rukh Khan is the brand ambassador of West Bengal as a result to which the chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, also came out in support of the star, who has a huge fan following all over the world.

“I will appeal please reconsider the decision,” Mamata said when reporters sought her reaction on the decision of the Mumbai Cricket Association.

“We love Maharashtra, capital of India’s business. We love Shah Rukh, Sachin, everybody. Shah Rukh is our brand ambassador and that is why you are asking me the question.”

Well, all said and done, let’s see whether if MCA reconsiders the decision or not.
