Shah Rukh KhanBangalore: Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) has urged BCCI not to invite Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan for third ODI between India and Pakistan in Kanpur on Sunday.

The police authorities and district administration are anticipating huge turnout for the match and it may become uncontrollable because of Shah Rukh's presence, said UPCA.

BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla had invited Shah Rukh and some other VIP personalities to Green Park.

"The Governor and Chief Minister are also coming to watch the match. So we have requested Rajeev Shukla not to invite Shah Rukh or any other VIP for the match. Because it would be difficult for us to control the crowd," a UPCA official said.

UPCA officials said the BCCI has accepted their request and Shah Rukh may now meet the players from both the sides in Lucknow a day later.
