Shah Rukh detained at LA airport: It’s KHAN again in US, followed by SORRY

shahrukhKHAN – the four letter word spells trouble in the US, as Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan realised yet again when he was detained at the Los Angeles airport for interrogation. It surely is a lesson in humility for The KHAN of Bollywood who has been detained for the third time in seven years by US immigration officials, apparently on ground of his surname. “Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kicked the star out of stardom,” Khan had said in 2012 when he was given a similar treatment. Khan arrived in the US on August 12 on an invitation from Yale University.
The detention of the actor has created a storm and is making headlines yet again. In a damage-control exercise, the US envoy has apologised “for the trouble”. “Sorry for the trouble at LAX @iamsrk,” US ambassador to India Richard Verma tweeted. He added that the US authorities are  “working to ensure it doesn’t happen again”. “Your work inspires millions, including in the US,” Verma wrote on the microblogging site.
shahrukh1US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Desai Biswal also apologised 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.
Khan replied, with a sardonic tinge. “No trouble sir, respect the protocol & not expecting 2 b above it. It’s just a tad inconvenient. Thx for ur concern,” he said in twitter.
Khan’s courteous reply, however, concealed his anger at being subjected to extra scrutiny by US immigration officials.
“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. “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.
