One of the wittiest comments every made by superstar Shah Rukh Khan was, 'Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to the U.S. The immigration guys kick the star out of my stardom.' Reinstating the same once again was yet another experience as Shah Rukh was once again detained in the US, this time at Los Angeles airport.
This is not the first time where the superstar, despite being a global icon, has been detained at the airport. Prior to this, Shah Rukh Khan faced a similar experience at the New York airport as well as New Jersey (Newark Liberty International Airport).
Now, the authorities from customs and immigration have apologized to the superstar on the micro blogging site twitter. In fact, Nisha Biswal, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, U.S. Department of State posted on twitter, "Sorry for the hassle at the airport, @iamsrk – even American diplomats get pulled for extra screening!" Further even U.S. Ambassador to India Rich Verma also tweeted, "Sorry for the trouble at LAX @iamsrk. We are working to ensure it doesn't happen again. Your work inspires millions, including in the US." Seeing their response, Shah Rukh Khan too added, "No hassle ma'm.Respect the protocol,not expecting to b above it. Appreciate ur graciousness, its just inconvenient.No trouble sir, respect the protocol & not expecting 2 b above it. It's just a tad inconvenient. Thx for ur concern."
