Mamata Asks Deshmukh to Rethink MCA Ban on SRK
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee again batted for Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan. She has, reportedly, appealed to Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh for reconsideration of the Maharashtra Cricket Association imposing 5-year ban on the entry of IPL franchisee Kolkata Knight Riders owner to the Wankhede stadium.

Deshmukh is the president of the Maharashtra Cricket Association.

Banerjee took up the matter with Deshhmukh, the Union Science and Technology Minister who had accompanied the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the latter's three-hour visit to the city on Saturday, sources said.

Shah Rukh, also West Bengal's brand ambassador, was slapped a five-year ban by MCA on entering the Wankhede stadium after getting into an alleged scuffle with the MCA after a match against Mumbai Indians in the recent IPL tournament.
