Shah Rukh Khan Detained at U.S. Airport

 

“Every damn time,” tweeted Shah Rukh Khan this morning after he was detained at an airport in the US for the third time in seven years. He was considerably calmer when America’s envoy to India tweeted an apology later, commenting that he was “not expecting to be above protocol.”

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was again “detained” at the Los Angeles airport, the third time in seven years that he has been stopped by US immigration officials at the country’s airports, with the actor expressing disappointment on social media.

“I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks,” (sic) the actor tweeted after being detained at the Los Angeles airport.

“The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons,” the 50-year-old actor said in another tweet referring to the widely popular web game.

Khan, who was in the US to visit Yale University, was detained at Los Angeles airport and given immigration clearance only after about two hours.

Assistant secretary of state for south and central Asia Nisha Desai Biswal apologized for the “hassle” Khan faced at the airport.

“Sorry for the hassle at the airport, @iamsrk – even American diplomats get pulled for extra screening,” Biswal tweeted.
