Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) on 2 August 2015 lifted the 5-year ban on Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan on entering the Wankhede Stadium. The decision on removal of ban imposed on Khan was taken during the Association’s meet in Mumbai.

Khan was banned from entering MCA premises, including the Wankhede Stadium, for five years for engaging in a scuffle with the officials of the cricketing body and the security staff on 16 May 2012 following Kolkata Knight Rider’s (KKR's) victory over Mumbai Indians.

The ban order was issued two days later by the MCA's Managing Committee then headed by Vilasrao Deshmukh, former Maharashtra chief minister. The actor had rejected the charge of misbehaviour and claimed he had reacted only after children who had accompanied him for the match, including his own kinds, were "manhandled" by the security staff.

Besides, the MCA Managing Committee also decided not to contest the life ban imposed by the BCCI on Mumbai cricketer Ankeet Chavan in connection with IPL 6 spot fixing scandal despite a Delhi court dropping criminal charges against him.
