“If that (abuse by MCA people) was the case, then why was the complaint lodged (against him). If he was not drunk then what was he inebriated with?” MCA treasurer Ravi Savant told reporters.
“It’s not worth reacting. We had BCCI officials with us. We had police officers with us. We had MCA officials with us. I don’t think I need to react to Shah Rukh’s statement,” Hindustan Times quoted Savant as saying.
Savant said he would push for a life ban on Khan at the MCA’s managing committee meeting on Friday and was confident he will be supported by those who were present on Wednesday night and witnessed the fracas.
“The way he behaved and the way he abused us, I will definitely propose that he be banned for life. Whatever members were with us on Wednesday there is unanimity that he be dealt with strictly and very strongly. With that perception I think they will be with me,” said Savant.
“A meeting has been called to decide on the issue on Friday at 11 am,” he informed.
“He abused us in such a way that I can’t tell you. The language he used was very bad. His behaviour is not acceptable,” said Dalal.
Earlier, the officials had lodged a police complaint against Kolkata Knight Riders IPL franchise team co-owner Shah Rukh Khan for his alleged misbehaviour on Wednesday night at the stadium.
“We have lodged a complaint against him at the Marine Drive Police station (for his alleged misbehaviour against MCA officials),” informed MCA secretary Nitin Dalal.
The Bollywood star had an altercation with the security and officials of the association after the Knight Riders had swamped Mumbai Indians, according to MCA treasurer Ravi Savant.
“He misbehaved and abused the MCA security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match (between KKR and Mumbai Indians). We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future,” Savant said on Thursday, who alleged that the actor was in a totally inebriated state.
