In a recent development coming in, former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team director Joy Bhattacharya has revealed the truth behind Shahrukh Khan's Wankhede ban ahead of Mumbai Indians' match against KKR today. 

The infamous incident happened in 2012 but the real reason behind Shahrukh losing his temper was unknown. 

Earlier today, the former team director of KKR shed light on the events through a social media post on X (formerly Twitter). Joy spoke out in support of SRK, refuting allegations of abuse and disclosing that his daughter Suhana, who was only 12 years old at the time was a victim of catcalling.

Replying to a now-deleted tweet by a fan blaming SRK's action for KKR's poor record at the Wankhede Stadium, Joy wrote on X, "KKR won two championships after that incident. And he did not abuse, I was there. And the next time, stay calm when someone cat calls your young daughter." 

During Bhattacharya's seven-year tenure as KKR team director, the franchise won the title twice in 2012 and 2014.

KKR hold a poor record against MI at Wankhede 

The two-time IPL winners have historically struggled at the venue against the home team. Across 11 encounters at Wankhede, Shahrukh Khan's team has only managed to secure one victory.

Interestingly, that solitary victory against MI at the Wankhede Stadium occurred during their title-winning campaign in 2012.

Speaking about today's match, KKR were dealt a major setback after losing early wickets and were reeling at 57 for 5 at one stage.
