Superstar Shahrukh Khan, who has been banned on entering the Wankhede grounds for a five-year by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), has declined to talk about whether he would tender an apology to the cricket body. The Kolkata Knight Riders owner once again said that what he did at the grounds was right as a father.
Talking to PTI, Shahrukh Khan said, “I don't want to get into this whole thing, whether I am going to apologise to the (Mumbai Cricket) Association or not.” He added, “If I am walking from here and if you say something which I don't like... I think fortunately or unfortunately, I am in a position where I should just be more thick skinned and quiet and say, you know what, if I get into this position right now, it will be bad for my family, children, my audience.”
Shahrukh Khan further said, “So I will have to be a little more patient or go to less public places, or I should just wear ear muffs. So I apologise for that.” On the MCA ban, SRK said, "Whether it is continued or not, every association has their rules and they should follow it and god bless them for that."
Meanwhile, the Badshah of Bollywood apologised to the TV audience. Shahrukh said, “The audience, which sees me doing roleplay, for them I feel sorry that I said something like that. I apologise to the TV audience with folded hands that it was because of me they had to endure the inane and stupid comments of the so-called analysts on television for hours. I am really sorry for that.”
However, Shahrukh Khan clarified that he was not against MCA. The actor said, “Let me also tell you, my fight is not with an association. If I am fighting with you, it doesn't mean my fight is with your TV channel. My fight was with you because you misbehaved with me.” Meanwhile, Shahrukh declined to comment on whether he would tender a written apology.
