In his version of the controversial events at Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday night, KKR owner Shahrukh Khan has said that the scuffle began after his kids and their friends accompanying them were manhandled by the MCA security. Many of the children were girls and under 13 years of age.
Shahrukh said he was not on the ground when the children were manhandled but came down from the stadium above where he was seated when he saw the incident taking place. When he saw the children being aggressively pushed around he told the security guard not to touch the kids but the guard did not listen and continued to manhandle them, Shahrukh claimed.
Security guard Vikas Dalvi has contradicted the MCA statement by stating that the KKR co-owner did not manhandle him as claimed by MCA officials.
MCA officials have claimed in their police complaint that Shahrukh hit Dalvi; Dalvi’s version is completely different and could embarrass the MCA and call into question the motive behind the move to ban Shahrukh from entering the Wankhede in the future.
The guard said that Shahrukh had subjected him to verbal abuse but had not touched him. He said some other people accompanying the co-owner of KKR had manhandled him whose identities were not known to him. They could be the bodyguards of the filmstar. Dalvi also claimed that he had “smelt” alcohol.
With regard to the accusation of abusive language used by him, Shahrukh claimed that MCA secretary Savant had used filthy abuse against him in Marathi and he had retaliated in similar fashion. He said that if anyone owed anybody an apology it was the MCA officials whom he claimed were of the type to get a cheap thrill from behaving obnoxiously with celebrities.
