Mumbai: Denying to be drunk and having indulged in any sort of wrongdoing at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday during an IPL match, Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan hit back at the Mumbai Cricket Association, saying he got into the spat with MCA officials only after they manhandled him and his kids the match. 

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.

The MCA officials have lodged a police complaint against Khan for his alleged misbehaviour at the stadium and decided to ban him for life from entering the premises.

"I was not drunk, I had gone to pick up my children. The officials were extremely aggressive. I just got angry but I left after that. I said a few things in anger. I was one and they were 20-25 officials and they were extremely rude. When I tried to answer them, they hid behind others," Khan said in a press conference.

"They should apologise to me. They were extremely high-handed," he added.

Asked about the reported ban on him by the MCA, Khan said, "If this is the kind of behaviour meted out to people then I would not go there. There were people rushing at me aggressively. I think it's unpardonable that you manhandle kids in the name of security."

"I don't know about the ban. I will call (MCA head Vilasrao) Deshmukh. I will write a complaint about their behaviour and the kind of language they used," he added. More
