Shah Rukh Khan detained at Newark airport in USA

Bollywood star, King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan was on Saturday (August 15th, 2009) detained at the Newark Liberty International airport for questioning in the USA. According to Shah Rukh the questioning took about two hours. The reason for the detention was because of his surname “Khan”. The actor was headed to Chicago to attend a function to celebrate the Indian Independence day (and as well as to promote his new film “My Name is Khan”) when the unfortunate incident took place.  According to Shah Rukh, He told them several times that he was an actor from India and and asked them to allow him to speak to his US contacts, Which he was refused. He said that the officials told him that since his name was popped up on the screen of the computer that he was needed to be questioned. The actor also told them that there were some immigration officials who knew him and vouched for him but the officials did not entertain his plea saying they have to follow rules.

Finally, after about an hour, when they allowed him to use his phone  he sent messages to his home, his secretary and to Congress MP Rajiv Shukla, who contacted the Indian embassy in Washington to intervene. The Indian officials then made sure he was released right away. The incident must have hurt the actor badly. “I was taken aback … I was taken to a room where there were several others waiting for secondary immigration checks,” a visibly upset Sha Rukh said, while speaking about the incident. “I was waiting for my bags … I thought it was nice of them to take me to another room … but that was apparently a second check. I had my papers in order,” said Shah Rukh, who told the officials that he was a movie star when they asked him what he was doing in the U.S.  “I did not want to say anything just in case they took everything wrong because I am little worried about Americans, because they do have this issue when your name is Muslim,” the actor continued.
