Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has been detained again at the New York airport! The star was on his way to the Yale University to receive the Chubb fellowship and to deliver a lecture to the students. He was accompanied by Nita Ambani in whose private plane he was travelling.
According to the reports, Shah Rukh was detained for over two hours by the immigration. The actor said that he was "detained at the airport as always." The students at the Yale sighed hearing it when the actor spoke, "It was nice, as it always happens."
Khan also said that this had happened to him "three or four times before." In 2009, Khan was detained at the airport similarly. But it was also believed that the same was a publicity stunt for his movie "My Name is Khan", that was about to release then. He had apparently shouted, "My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist," to the authorities that was the same dialogue from his movie.
Even though Khan did not speak about the incident at the press conference, but the Times of India reported that he was 'tensed' and wanted the situation to be 'sorted' out immediately. As expected Shah Rukh made it lighter when he told the students at the Yale, "Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kicked the star out of stardom." The statement has huge potential and could turn out to be Shah Rukh's next film's dialogue.
The super star also mentioned that during such situations he got his "small victories". "They (immigration officials) always ask me how tall I am and I always lie and say 5 feet 10 inches. Next time I am going to get more adventurous. (If they ask me) What colour are you, I am going to say white," Shah Rukh told.
Khan reached 2 hours later for his lecture at the Yale. Before starting his address Shah Rukh thanked Ambani for getting him to the United States.
Shah Rukh Khan was conferred the Chubb Fellowship by the Yale University on 12 April, 2012.
