Shah Rukh Khan, who was headed to Yale to deliver a lecture, was detained at a New York airport for two hours. Do you think he had to pull out the “My Name is Khan and I am not a terrorist” line yet again?
He says this happens to him all the time, and if you remember, this also happened during the making of My Name is Khan. Back then, everyone screamed publicity stunt because the same thing happens in the film as well. So, what’s it now? His film with Katrina Kaif is still some time away and I don’t think there’s any terrorist angle in there.
Eventually, Yale University officials had to contact the Department of Homeland Security, and then Shah Rukh was cleared by the immigration officials.
