Superstar Mammootty was detained at JFK airport, New York and even denied entry to America on April 29 only because of his passport.

On his passport, his original name Mohammed Kutty Ismail Paniparambil was given and with the tight security in US any person coming to US bearing a Muslim name like Mohammed Ismail was always questioned.

Mammootty who had gone to US to campaign and raise funds for his childhood friend Stanley J. Kalathara was kept under custody for about two hours till the Indian Consulate came to his rescue. He had to endure a gruelling session of questioning. Stanley is an attorney and a Democratic candidate contesting for the New York City Council among the Malayalee immigrants in New York.
