Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan stopped at US airport
Bollywood superstar, king khan Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) has said he was detained at a US airport again. “I fully understand and respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks,” Shah Rukh said in a tweet posted on Friday morning (IST).
Following this, US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Biswal tweeted: “Sorry for the hassle at the airport, @iamsrk – even American diplomats get pulled for extra screening!”
This is not the first time for Shah Rukh, one of Hindi film industry’s most successful stars, was detained at a US airport. In 2009, he was stopped at the Newark Airport and was released after two hours at the intervention of the Indian consulate in New York and also in 2012, he was detained at a New York airport for two hours when he had arrived to visit Yale University, where he was honoured as a Chubb Fellow.
