Twitter has a field day again... thanks to SRK
Shah Rukh Khan is considered world's biggest superstar by many, and but there are somethings which shows he is just like us. Earlier today SRK tweeted, "I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks". And he followed it up with a rather amusing tweet saying, "The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons." This is not the first time Khan has been in such a situation. In 2012, Shah Rukh Khan was detained at New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials. The US customs and border protection authorities had expressed "profound" apologies for the Shah Rukh Khan's detention then. In 2009 also, Khan was detained by US immigration officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey because his name came up on a computer alert list. He was asked several questions about the purpose of his visit. His hand baggage was checked. He was not allowed to even make a phone call for nearly an hour. SRK has earlier mentioned rather sarcastically, "Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kicked the star out of stardom".
Twitter world was quick enough to come in SRK's rescue, many of his fans and followers, tweeted in his support. But there were hoards of them who found humor in his pain. Here we have compiled few of the funny ones:
However, there was some silver lining for SRK as the assistant secretary of state for south and central Asia, U.S. Department of State tweeted:
Even U.S. Ambassador to India tweeted apologizing to the FAN star and is assured him that it won't happen again.
As gracious as King Khan is, he replied to both of them, "No hassle ma’m.Respect the protocol,not expecting to b above it. Appreciate ur graciousness, its just inconvenient". and "No trouble sir, respect the protocol & not expecting 2 b above it. It’s just a tad inconvenient. Thx for ur concern".
We just hope SRK doesn't have to go through this again.
