    It's after 4:30 am here...I've got to go to bed finally.

    Amid all this I keep thinking about the Atlantic City meet Shahrukh night that was supposed to be August 14th. Did that happen? Was this occurrence at the airport before that or after it? I would think it was when he first flew into the USA so that would have been before Atlantic City...so did it affect that SRK appearance? Anyone know yet?

    That is wrong.

    Now you know what my family is saying? They are saying that it IS a publicity gimick done by FOX STUDIOS but if that's the case then Shahrukh didn't know this OR he did know...I am outraged even more! :crazy:

    why would he promote a movie that HE STILL DIDNT FINISH SHOOTING!? :mad2:
    when Kabir Khan [the director] was stopped three times did they say HE WAS PROMOTING NEW YORK MOVIE? NO! :mad2::yell::yell::rant:
    just because he is SHAH RUKH KHAN they think anything he does is for public and people seem to forget that these kind of things arent really "promotional" type for any kind of movies, to be held for 2 hours and questioned about stupid things isnt really FUN thing to do! :mad2:

    Exactly my thoughts but who will explain to my family??? They think it's done by FOX. Here's yahoo article:

    NEW DELHI (AFP) – Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan said he was detained for questioning Saturday at a US airport because he has a Muslim name.
    Khan, known as the "King of Bollywood", said he was questioned at Newark Airport in Newark, New Jersey, for two hours but was let go after the Indian embassy in the United States intervened.
    Khan "is a Muslim name and I think the name is common on their checklist", the 43-year-old actor told an Indian television station by telephone from Chicago.
    Khan, named as one of the top 50 most influential men in the world in 2008 by US magazine Newsweek, was detained by US immigration officers early Saturday.
    The immigration officers wanted to know why the actor was visiting the United States after his name popped up on the computer screen at the counter.
    "I was waiting for my bags... I thought it was nice of them to take me to another room... but that was apparently a second check," Khan said, adding: "I had my papers in order."
    "I was really taken aback," Khan told the CNN-IBN television station.
    "I did not want to say anything just in case they took everything wrong because I am little worried about Americans because they do have this issue when your name is Muslim," he added.
    US airport officials are frequently accused by human rights groups of racially profiling Muslims.
    The actor, who was heading to Chicago to take part in celebrations Saturday to mark India's Independence Day, said the incident was a "little embarrassing" for an entertainer of his stature.
    India's government reacted sharply, saying many such incidents have taken place in the United States.
    "I am of the opinion that the way we are frisked -- for example I too was frisked -- we should also do the same to them," Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni told reporters in New Delhi.
    In the Indian capital, US Ambassador Timothy Roemer described Khan in a statement as a "global icon" who is a welcome guest in the United States.
    "We are trying to ascertain the facts of the case -- to understand what took place," he said.

    he United States has done it again.

    Actor Shah Rukh Khan [ Images ] was detained for at least two hours early Saturday morning at the Newark airport in the United States. He was reportedly released after two-hour grilling.

    "I was taken aback...I was taken to a room where there were several others waiting for secondary immigration checks," a visibly upset Khan said, while speaking about the incident.

    The Bollywood actor said he kept telling the authorities that he was an actor and requested them to allow him to speak to his contacts in the US, but was disallowed to use his phone.

    He said the immigration officials told him since his name popped up on their computer and he needed to be questioned.

    Khan said there were some immigration officials who knew him and vouched for him but they declined to entertain his plea, saying they have to follow rules.

    He said after he was stopped he sent messages to his home and his secretary and Congress MP Rajiv Shukla, who informed the Indian Mission which came to his rescue.

    "I have always been worried about travelling to America. I shy away from all this. I don't look like a terrorist going to do anything to the country.

    "I did feel bad. I felt angry. I am glad my family wasn't there. God knows what they would have done to them," Khan said.

    "I am always reluctant to come down here (US). They always do it and it's odd travelling alone. My guard wasn't given visa from India and I was feeling disturbed. They kept on asking silly and irrelevant questions like phone numbers and hotel number," Khan said.

    Many Americans love SRK [ Images ]: US envoy

    This is what the statement from the US Ambassador to India Timothy J Roemer says.

    "We are trying to ascertain the facts of the case -- to understand what took place," said the Ambassador. "Shah Rukh Khan, the actor and global icon, is a very welcome guest in the United States. Many Americans love his films."

    But I still don't get it how did this happen while going to Chicago, does that mean, he missed his flight? And "immigration" officers shouldn't intervene in domestic flights...
