Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday, went unrecognised again as Shah Rukh Khan at the Los Angeles airport when the United States Immigration officials detained him for the third time since 2009. Khan went on to social networking site Twitter, expressing his anger at the inconvenience caused by the authorities. He said that even though he respects all security measures and understands the need to undertake them, but getting detained every time he travels to the USA “sucks”.

 

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.

Followers of the Bollywood star have been angry about the regular hassle Khan has had to face in the United States and went on Twitter to express their bitterness on the incident. Some saw the lighter side of the incident and had a few jokes flowing in their tweets.

Even Khan could not stop himself from cracking one.

Earlier in 2012, Khan had been detained at the New York airport for over two hours. Khan was travelling with Nita Ambani of the Reliance Industries and was on a visit to the Yale University. Khan had then joked that every time he felt arrogant about himself, he took a trip to America. The American authorities kicked the stardom out of him, he had added. Similarly, in 2009, Khan was detained at the Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey by immigration officials as his name had been on a computer alert list.
