    AW: Breaking News: SRK detained for questioning at US airport

    what is this..:confused:

    America finds humour over detention of Shahrukh Khan


    Mumbai: Now most of the Americans have known the "King Khan" Shahrukh Khan after he has been detained at Newark Liberty International Airport, US.


    SRK reached America to participate in the gala event on the occasion of India's Independence Day on 15th August, but unfortunately got detained after arriving Newark Liberty International Airport, US. Ironically, he had till recently been shooting in the US for his forthcoming big budget flick "My Name is Khan".


    However, the news was in limelights for a long time after that incident on 15th August with Shahrukh Khan. He has been through a lot of government comments, celebrity comments, countless interviews, accusations and rejections.


    After being all this in media and personals to the actor, the "King Khan" of Bollywood has been joked by the American media. They found this funny. "The Daily Show" in America finds the humour in this segment in Wednesday night's broadcast on televisions, in which the correspondent Aasif Mandvi, who is an Indian, educates the host, Jon Stewart, on Shahrukh Khan's superstar status in Bollywood.

    and this ??

    US makes fun of SRK

    Los Angeles: An American comedian finds comedy over the detention of Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan who was recently held at Newark Airport, New Jersey.

    Where at one hand, countless fans of the chocolate actor were fuming over the incident, US was able to find funny side to the happening. Comedian, Jon Stewart, almost called Bollywood superstar SRK a minion on his programme ‘The Daily Show'.

    Although many ordinary Americans may not have known of Shah Rukh Khan just over a week ago but all of that has changed with the detention episode involving the star at Newark Liberty International Airport.

    Shahrukh was held at the airport as he arrived to participate in India's Independence Day celebrations in America. Ironically, he had till recently been shooting there for his forthcoming flick “My Name is Khan”, which is about sketch of racial discrimination over Muslims after the September 11 incident.

    Others are monthly magazines too. Like Stardust which ran an article on the Pakistan-US group that objected to SRK detainment. You can read their version of the story at
    Shah Rukh Khan US detention opposed by Pak-American group!!
    http://www.magnamags.com/index.php/...-detention-opposed-by-pak-american-group.html

    They also have a poll on their main page which asks the question (and notice they don't even word it as a question)
    Shah Rukh Khan hyped his detention in the US to gain publicity for My Name Is Khan.

    You can vote for that at their main page at http://www.magnamags.com/index.php?templateName=stardust
    When I did I saw the results up to now which were:

    I'm 100% American and I don't think it's funny at all! I am still outraged :mad2:and if I had been at that airport and would have known about this, I would not have been detained but they would have probably arrested me because I would have FREAKED OUT!!! I am actually seriously considering changing my very Caucasian last name from Kerr to Khan. After all, it's only a matter of changing 3 little letters...

    bonita Shahrukh-My LOVE

    I would have have been so impatient if I was Shahrukh. He takes things so calm. If I was at the airport the same time as he did and saw him I would have been so loud on that officer. Some people can be so stupid. They feel that they can do anything just because they are wearing the uniform or whatever. its just like when a football player mother was dying and the officer was having all attitude with the man and was not listening to him at all. The man kept telling the officer that his mother was dying and he have to go see her and the officer was like don't have attitude with me and it was actually the officer that had the attitude because the guy was calm. The officer let the football player go and by then his mother was DEAD! It all happen right outside the hospital. Things like this makes me very upset and mad cause some people can be so stupid and don't use their heads at all.

    anyways here is another...

    Kennedy got his apology, what about Khan?

    Sometimes I'm quite amazed at the quality of the discussions on TV news channels. The Shah Rukh Khan episode was a good example. I watched, astonished, as so many of the news channels all but turned into spokespersons for the American security establishment. I waited for a discussion or a programme where anchors could inform viewers of how exactly the airport security apparatus works in America. I waited for news channels to question this apparatus and ask the Americans about religious / racial profiling at their airports (of which there have been enough instances since 9/11 to know that it does in fact happen). I waited for them to find out whether certain categories of Americans visiting India demand a waiving of security protocol at Indian airports or not (they do). I waited for some news channel to bring up the fact that Ted Kennedy got an apology after he was subjected to security procedures (considering so much was made of how Americans do it to everybody and no one ever complains). I waited for all this, but didn't find it on any channel (if there was such a programme, I will be only too happy to stand corrected). Instead, what I got on most news channels, from Headlines Today to CNN IBN was this: Indians are obsessed with a VIP culture, American airport security is wonderful and has prevented attacks after 9/11, it's perfectly okay if they single out Muslims (after all, the poor things have had 9/11, so they have to be careful) and so on. To say that I was appalled would be an understatement. It would have been nice - but perhaps too much to expect - if the anchors in question had bothered to do some homework, instead of falling back on cliches and generalities. It would also have been nice if news channels had grilled some American spokesperson instead of talking non-stop to Shah Rukh Khan and to sundry people from Bollywood (including Salman Khan, who at the best of times, is impossible to follow, given his strange American accent:pound::laugh::D:rofl:). Anyway, the BJP crisis meant that the spotlight soon shifted to that well known historian and noted intellectual Jaswant Singh who has been holding forth in his foghorn voice on his book (the title itself is in very strange English). Can you blame me for avoiding watching news channels altogether? So what else was there to see? Well, NDTV Imagine has a new serial called Basera. I saw an episode but don't have much to say on the subject right now - there was nothing to like or dislike particularly.

    I also saw an episode of Paul Merton in India on the History channel. It was all right, if you like bemused-white-person-confused-by-India kind of shows. Paul does the bhangra, shudders at the traffic and honking on Indian roads, squirms at the sight of hijras collecting money from commercial establishments... you get the drift. And finally. I have to lament the death of the music channel. MTV ceased to be one long, long ago. It is now a youth channel and is crammed with all kinds of reality shows, each worse than the other. (But they're apparently very popular with the channel's target audience of 15 to 24-year-olds, I'm told).That leaves only 9XM, which shows songs of course but has too many breaks for Bheegi Billi, The Betel Nuts and all its other allegedly funny characters. Etc does telecast some songs but mostly, it shows trailers for new films. Anyone out there who's ready and willing to fill this vacuum?

    It's gonna take time for them to apologize because Shahrukh is not American, if he were then it might have been faster or maybe a date with Arnold or Pres. Obama would have done it.

    for those who said it was a publicity stunt, we were there when CNN came to interview SRK and they told us they didn't have appointment nor were called to see SRK, CNN was there on their own and without any notice.

    here is the video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nS2FPoYB1Nw

    they are a couple of clowns, yes gentlemens, Shahrukh Khan, the king of bollywood, an industry that grows every day more and more and that is being recognized in many places, without promotion here in Peru, without adds on tv or magazines, here in peru know who is the king of bollywood.
    and if there are people that still do not know who is Shahrukh Khan, do not know what they're missing, meet a wonderful,smarter, charmer, talented person who gives much joy and love their fans
    by the way ey ey you india guy, yes I've seen om shanti om and I'm peruvian girl jejeje, and I loved it

    Can Shah Rukh Khan Wake Up America?- Planet Bollywood Special

    As the Shah Rukh Khan controversy about his mistreatment at a US airport rages on, it has opened up new perspectives. One of them is of PR guru Dale Bhagwagar who has handled the media relations for some of the biggest names in Bollywood, including controversy queens like Priyanka Chopra, Shilpa Shetty and Sherlyn Chopra.

    The public relations expert recalls, “When Shilpa Shetty faced racial discrimination, the whole of UK rallied behind her. I was her publicist then and was overwhelmed with UK journalists calling me in Mumbai just to ascertain facts, while Shilpa faced Jade Goody’s onslaughts in the Celebrity Big Brother house.”

    But when Shah Rukh Khan has alleged community discrimination at a US airport, even many Indians are calling it a ‘publicity stunt’ for the promotion of Karan Johar’s ‘My Name Is Khan’. “Not fair,” says the PR man. Would King Khan need a publicist like Dale to get things moving in his favour and make people understand that this is not a stunt?

    Though the PR specialist feels it’s doubtful this controversy is a stunt, he points out, “at least, the incident exposes the continuous discrimination towards Muslims in America and gives hope to so many people around the world, seeking a life of respect. If you still want to call it a stunt; then call it a stunt with a cause!”

    Indeed, Shah Rukh Khan has raised a voice which so many throughout the world are identifying with. It’s only a matter of time (or maybe, with the right kind of PR) when it will be heard in the right ‘perspective’.
