Shah Rukh khan detained at US airport yet again. 

Actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at US airport yet again by the US immigration department officials on Friday.

The actor tweeted about the detention early Friday morning, saying, ” “I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks”. Khan, in a subsequent tweet took the incident in a stride and said, “The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons.”

This is not the first time Khan has been in such a situation. In 2012, Shah Rukh Khan was detained at New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials.In 2009 also, Khan was detained by US immigration officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey because his name came up on a computer alert list. He was asked several questions about the purpose of his visit. His hand baggage was checked. He was not allowed to even make a phone call for nearly an hour.
In response to SRK’s tweet, Assistant secretary of state for south and central Asia in the US Department of State Nisha Desai Biswal has apologised for “hassle” Khan faced at the airport.

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


Meanwhile twitter exploded after SRK’s detention. 

Khan had joked that since the incident he has started travelling light but sees the issue in a larger context.

“God forbid if there was a problem in India, I would be the first to say that we have to strengthen our security. One has to see it in a larger context, it’s a sign of the times. The world is that kind of place… you cannot hold grudges against people. We have to live with it and and just be prepared for some of this stuff,” he had said.
