This is not the first time that the actor was detained at the US airport by immigration department. Shah Rukh Khan was detained as one of his namesakes features in ‘no flying’ list. In February this year, the actor had said that he is not going to experience any more problems while flying to US as the person has been found. Shah Rukh Khan was earlier detained at New York Airport in 2012. The actor had expressed that he held no grudges against the officials but it was uncomfortable to keep waiting without any reason.
