The Mumbai Cricket Association has refused to relent on its five-year ban slapped on Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, for a brawl during the last season of the Indian Premier League.

A report in The Indian Express quoted MCA president Ravi Sawant as saying, "The MCA stand remains the same. The managing committee had taken a decision of imposing a five-year ban on him (Khan) last year, and it will continue this season too."

The Indian Premier League franchise owner had been prohibited from entering the Wankhede Stadium premises after he had an altercation with a security guard and had reportedly threatened an official after an IPL match in May last year. The Bollywood superstar had initially refused to apologize for his behavior, thus evoking the MCA to stick with the suspension.
