Shahrukh Khan Does Not Want To Step on US Soil
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan no longer feels like stepping on US soil as a result of an unpleasant encounter with US customs. This past weekend, Shahrukh Khan was detained by US immigration en route to a show in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
US Officials claim that the incident was simply a routine process that took a little bit longer than usual because Shahrukh Khan's bag was missing; however, Khan says that the US Officials at Newark airport held him up because of his Muslim surname. He also thought it was unprofessional of the officials to prevent him from calling the local organizers of his show because he was late.
Profusely apologising to his fans for arriving two hours late at the casino city of New Jersey for Saturday's function, 'King' Khan stunned the large number of Indian-Americans when he told them that he does not feel like stepping on the American soil any more, but it is the love and affection of millions of his fans in the US which would bring him to this country again and again.
The incident has stuck a deep chord with the Indian public. Stories about the incident currently occupy the top four slots on the Times of India's most read list.
