Bonhomie blossoming! Shah Rukh Khan, MCA make up on Friendship Day

The Friendship Day of 2015 proved to be a good one for superstar Shah Rukh Khan.  Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) extended its arm of amity to the Bollywood actor, who was banned from entering Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai after his misconduct during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match between his co-owned franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI), back in 2012. He was imposed a ban of five years on the grounds of misbehaviour with the security staff and on Sunday MCA lifted the ban with less than two years to spare.

Shah Rukh took to Twitter instantly and expressed his gratitude towards MCA for relieving him from the ban.

Earlier, following the nasty incident that took place in 2012 at Wankhede, MCA officials filed a complaint with the local Police Station at Marine Drive.

Shah Rukh vehemently kept refusing the posed charges and said it was an aftermath of security staff misconduct with his children.

However, the MCA with this move have offered a friendly hand which has gracefully been respected by the King Khan. Hopefully, steps like these will always strengthen the cricketing bond and further help the spirit of game to be alive.
