Many Bollywood celebrities have expressed their support for superstar Shahrukh Khan after he was banned from the Wankhede Stadium for five years following a rift with MCA officials. The IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner said that he lost his cool when he saw MCA officials manhandling his daughter and other children.
Several B-Town stars took to their Twitter pages to voice their support to Shahrukh Khan. They all praised the actor and justified his action as a dad. Filmmaker Karan Johar said, "SRK is one of the best fathers I know and protective about every child. He was being just that, a protective parent!!! Why blame a man who was just reacting as a father... who wouldn't have done the same in his place?"
Actress Celina Jaitley said, "Speaking even as a new mother of twins, when it comes to one's children a parent will go to any length to protect them, SRK is a good dad. When it comes to my children I would go to any lengths to protect them, he was being a dad at that moment... are stars not human?"
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)."
Director Anurag Basu said, "SRK's behaviour is completely justified, I'd have smashed their heads if it was my daughter."
Music composer Vishal Dadlani tweeted, "Straight up. Touch my family, I destroy you. No question. SRK was right."
TV actor Ronit Roy tweeted, "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)."
