A day after trading allegations with actor Shah Rukh Khan over a verbal spat which took place at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials have hinted they may not ban the actor from the stadium if he is willing to apologise for his conduct.

MCA officials are expected to meet today to decide on whether to implement a lifetime ban on the actor who is also the co-owner of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, CNN-IBN quoted unnamed MCA sources as saying they were willing to reconsider the decision to ban him from the stadium if he tendered an apology for the incident.

However, whether the actor will tender one is rather unlikely given that he did not seem very apologetic about his behaviour yesterday and said that the MCA officials should apologise for their conduct.

“They were extremely high-handed and aggressive in their behaviour. I was being bullied. I was not drunk. They should apologise,” Khan told a press conference yesterday.

“My life will not change by not allowing me to enter Wankhede cricket stadium. I don’t care about all this ban, I myself will not enter the cricket stadium. What they did is unpardonable,” he said.

MCA officials have filed a complaint with the police against the actor following the incident.

The cricket board officials have accused the actor of using abusive language against their security guards and officials following the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

However, IPL commissioner Rajiv Shukla had yesterday said he would consult the MCA officials and Khan before deciding on whether the ban on the actor was justified and should be implemented.
