NEW DELHI: Actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at US airport yet again by the US immigration department officials on Friday.

The actor tweeted about the detention early Friday morning, saying, ” “I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks”. Khan, in a subsequent tweet took the incident in a stride and said, “The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons.”

While some die-hard fans were miffed at the incident, others took the incident with a pinch of humour. Ever since the actor tweeted about the incident, Twitter has exploded with some hilarious tweets.

Assistant secretary of state for south and central Asia in the US Department of State Nisha Desai Biswal later appologised to the actor for the goof-up in a tweet.

 This is not the first time Khan has been in such a situation. In 2012, Shah Rukh Khan was detained at New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials. The US customs and border protection authorities had expressed “profound” apologies for the Shah Rukh Khan’s detention then. In 2009 also, Khan was detained by US immigration officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey because his name came up on a computer alert list. He was asked several questions about the purpose of his visit. His hand baggage was checked. He was not allowed to even make a phone call for nearly an hour.
 “Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kicked the star out of stardom,” Khan had said with some sarcasm about his earlier detentions.
