Shahrukh was detained at New York airport for two hours after he landed to visit the Yale University. In fact, the airport needed the approval of US senior authorities to clear him and the entire process took 75 minutes. This was the second time the actor was detained at US airport.
India's foreign minister SM Krishna fell hard on US govt over this incident and said, "It has become a habit these days to first detain and then apologise. This can’t continue." Even many other Bollywood celebrities reacted very tough over this issue.
