It was uncomfortable to get stuck in an airport for 2-3 hours: SRK on being detained at US airport

Nearly four years after he was detained at New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan today (February 21) said he holds no grudge even though it was very uncomfortable to be stuck for no reason.
Shah Rukh Khan said he would be the first person to demand strengthening of security if a situation demands in India.
“It just was very uncomfortable. To land up somewhere and getting stuck in an airport for 2-3 hours for no reason at all,” he said describing his April 2012 experience.
SRK joked that since the incident he has started travelling light but sees the issue in a larger context.
“God forbid if there was a problem in India, I would be the first to say that we have to strengthen our security. One has to see it in a larger context, it’s a sign of the times.
‘”The world is that kind of place… you cannot hold grudges against people. We have to live with it and and just be prepared for some of this stuff,” he said.
The actor said his namesake who was on the lookout list in US has been found and so he can now travel freely. -
