Shah Rukh Khan Recalled His Wankhede-Stadium Fiasco, Said Got Triggered By Religion-Related Insult

Shah Rukh Khan faced a major backlash in 2012, when he was banned from entering the Wankhede Stadium for five years. The superstar apparently got embroiled in an argument with the staff and security personnel stationed at the stadium during an IPL match for his team, Kolkata Knight Riders. However, the ban was lifted three years later.

When Shah Rukh Khan talked about his infamous Wankhede stadium controversy

In one of his earlier appearances on the show, Aap Ki Adalat, Shah Rukh Khan had revealed his side of the story to the much-talked about Wankhede stadium controversy and revealed how a small argument escalated in an ugly manner when a person used a derogatory term, that indicated a religion-based insult. The actor had narrated:

“Yes I was very angry and upset. My kids were there and I thought someone… Maybe they had a rule, that hatao yaha se. I told him, these are our kids and we are taking them. I just said this. There was a person there who said a word which I, as a Delhi person, felt like it was an abusive word. Even though the same word in Marathi is also rude. Thoda sa religious, galat tha woh. I then lost my cool, main pagal hogaya and I went to hit him.”

There can be no second thoughts about the amount of fans Shah Rukh Khan enjoys globally. Moreover, due to his handsome good looks, the actor tends to receive a lot of love from his female fans, who just can't stop themselves from going gaga over him. Talking along the same lines, Shah Rukh in one of his earlier interviews, revealed how much he loved popularity. He mentioned:

“No, not at all. I said this, in one interview, in my documentary that all my life I have worked so that I can be recognised. I want thousands of people to scream my name out when I get off the airport. I want girls and little children to tear my clothes off. I have worked very hard for this. And then I find it very stupid when I see stars wear dark glasses to hide their faces. I think I want to be recognised. Given a chance, I'd give my left arm and right arm to be recognised and have no privacy. I want to be known. I want to be disturbed. I want to be troubled by as many people for as many years as possible."
