Shah Rukh Khan detained at Los Angeles airport, slams US on Twitter


Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan on Friday was detained by the US authorities at the Los Angeles Airport for several hours.

Frustrated over being detained once again, the Indian superstar took to Twitter to slam the US authorities.

He wrote, “I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks.”

However, the actor soon tweeted informing his fans how he spent his time while being made to wait by the security agencies at the airport.

He tweeted, “The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons.”

The State Department could not immediately make any comment on why the Indian super star was detained at the Los Angeles airport. This is not the first time that Khan has been detained at a US airport.

Khan was detained at New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials in 2012. The US customs and border protection authorities had expressed “profound” apologies for the Shah Rukh Khan’s detention then.

In 2009 also, Khan was also detained by US immigration officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey because his name came up on a computer alert list.
