New York: Shah Rukh Khan, the most biggest star of Bollywood entertainment industry – the one who has the biggest fan following in the entire world and the Hindi film industry is respected and known for him across the globe, has been detained at the New York Airport. This is the second time that the superstar got detained at the airport in the U.S. The reason behind his detention time and again in the U.S. seems to be his being a Muslim, as he was not alone rather was with Ms. Neeta Ambani (the wife of the world’s top billionaire Mukesh Ambani and the owner of the Mumbai Indians team in IPL) who was not stopped and let go. But Khan was stopped at the immigration counter without any solid reason.
This lets the people understand about Americans’ biased behavior against the Muslims – no matter if they are world renowned celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh was detained for two hours at the New York White Plane Airport. He went to the U.S. to deliver a lecture at the Yale University to the students. Khan was specially invited by the university’s authorities and he took time out from IPL and flew to NYC where the biggest superstar was detained for the second time – previously he was detained in the U.S in 2009 at the Newark Airport for questioning.
As per reports, Shah Rukh Khan got named as Chubb Fellow, which is called the highest honor of the Ivy League institution, on April 12th for his promotion of human ideals through art. Neeta Ambani accompanied the actor. The sources at the airport reveals that the rest of the passengers from the plane were cleared without any hitch but Bollywood superstar got detained. After the university officials contacted the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Department at Washington, Khan got freed by the airport authorities.
If the world renowned celebrity like Shah Rukh Khan is behaved badly at the U.S airports, wonder…what might happen with the common masses there?
