Terming as “unfortunate” the spat between Shah Rukh Khan and Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials, Union Minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday advised the Bollywood superstar to be a little more calmer.

“He carries a lot of weight on his shoulders. His behaviour matters to the industry tremendously, and to every young and old in India. Whatever happened, it’s unfortunate,” he told reporter outside the Parliament.

“I hope that his temper will calm down. As far as BCCI action or the Wankhede Stadium is concerned, I think they should sit down and find a middle way out,” he said.

On arrest of Royal Challengers Bangalore cricketer Luke Pomersbach on charges of molestation, Mr. Abdullah said, “Action must be taken against them. So that it becomes a thing for the entire world to see that India means business and India is not going to tolerate such behaviour from anybody.”
