SRK apologetic, MCA not impressed

The Mumbai Cricket Association's managing committee on Monday took note of the apology rendered by Shah Rukh Khan in Chennai for his behaviour at the Wankhede Stadium earlier. However, it has not withdrawn the five-year ban imposed on the principal owner of new IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

'A meeting of the committee was convened to discuss routine matters, but this matter of Shah Rukh Khan was raised by some members. It was decided to leave it to the president and office-bearers to get more details about what transpired yesterday,' said MCA chief and union minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.

Asked when he intended to sit with his office-bearers to discuss the matter further, he said, 'We want to resolve the issue at the earliest. There is no point in keeping it hanging.'

However, the MCA sources indicated there was no change in the five-year ban imposed on the Bollywood star on 18 May, two days after Khan's skirmish with the security and officials of the association.

Surrounded by his wife and kids, Shah Rukh had said last night after KKR's maiden title triumph in Chennai, 'I want to apologise to the kids for my misbehaviour at MCA. I apologise to all who saw me differently. I shouldn't have behaved in that manner. But today my team has won, so I guess, all you fans should forgive me. We have won at last.'
