Shahrukh Khan has rubbished off the allegations made by some that he has blown his detention controversy out of proportion just to gain publicity for his upcoming release My Name is Khan, which is also based on terrorism and discrimination. He feels that it is too early to promote it.
Shahrukh said that there is no point oft promoting the film now, as there are still some eight to nine months to go before it hits the theatres. He added that it's not very positive when someone asks you to vouch for you in order to enter someone's country. He feels it's disrespectful.
It may be recalled that Shahrukh was detained at the Newark Airport, USA, for two hours last week. He was released only after Indian Embassy in US intervened.
Well, Shahrukh being a big star doesn't have to resort to such cheap publicity!
