As Shah Rukh Khan told the Yale crowd in 2012, flying into USA is a humbling experience for him. The 50-year-old star was detained yet again on Thursday night at Los Angeles airport, writing on Twitter, "I fully understand and respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks."
SRK was detained at New York airport for two hours in April 2012, while on his way to address Yale students as a Chubb Fellow. "We were detained at the airport as always. For one and a half hours. It was nice. It always happens when I come to America. Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself I take a trip to America," he said in his speech later.
The US Customs and Border Protection wrote to India's New York Mission apologizing but it wasn't the first time SRK had been through extra screening at an American airport - he was stopped for two hours at Newark in 2009 - and clearly it wasn't to be the last.
This time, he played Pokemon, he said in a tweet.
Twitter, waking up to news headlines on Friday, directed Shah Rukh Khan to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who has gained a reputation for swift action when tweeted to for help.
