Famed Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is in the midst of an ugly controversy after allegations that he'd gotten into a drunken brawl with security personnel and officials at a stadium in Mumbai during a game of cricket. He's now been banned from entering the Wankhede stadium for the next five years The incident took place after his team—the Kolkata Knight Riders—beat the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League clash. Khan—who's known as the "King of Bollywood"—and his three associates were booked on charges of voluntarily causing hurt and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace. However, the actor denied all charges and said that in fact he deserved an apology, as his children were "manhandled" by security officials. "I had gone to pick up my children who were there to watch the match," said Khan. I went there, congratulated my team and when I came back, I saw that there a gentleman was manhandling the children. They were pushing little girls. I just told him that this is not the way to behave." He also denied being drunk and said he only drinks socially. However, the Mumbai Cricket Association's report said that Khan became upset when he and his entourage weren't allowed to celebrate after the presentation ceremony, pushing an elderly guard and abusing MCA officials who intervened. Assistant Commissioner of Police Iqbal Shaikh also confirmed that Khan was drunk, but said he wasn't drinking inside the stadium. Khan was involved in a previous altercation in January, when he reportedly slapped director Shirish Kunder at a party.
