There is a huge demand for tickets from fans across the world, including U.S., to watch Sachin Tendulkar's 200th and farewell Test at the Wankhede Stadium here next month leading to a tricky situation to accommodate all, said Mumbai Cricket Association chief Sharad Pawar on October 23.
When a question was put to him about allowing Shah Rukh Khan to watch the game, Pawar played safe and said all those people who have not been stopped from entering the MCA's premises can come and witness the Test match.
The Bollywood actor was banned by MCA for five years from entering the Wankhede Stadium for creating a ruckus during an IPL game in 2012 by the previous regime.
Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan had expressed his disappointment over master blaster Sachin Tendulkar's retirement.
"When I heard about it I was in Australia...I learnt about it a little late...I felt bad. He has taken the decision as he understands sports better. He did a lot for cricket. He should take rest, relax and enjoy with family," Shah Rukh Khan said.
Sharad Pawar also denied news reports that Sachin Tendulkar had demanded 2000 tickets for the game. "He has not asked for a single ticket but the MCA managing committee has taken a decision yesterday that we will give him 500 tickets," said Pawar.
