USA: The US customs and border protection authorities on Friday expressed profound apologies for the Shah Rukh Khan detention incident.
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at a New York airport for over two hours by immigration officials after arriving from India in a private plane with Nita Ambani, to address students at Yale University.
While Nita, wife of Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, and the rest of their group were cleared immediately, Khan was stopped,and was given immigration clearance only after about two hours.
Being the second time now, Mr Khan was prepared to be detained, believing himself to be on some sort of list that flags passengers to be screened at US airports.
Shailja Gupta, the USA head of his company Red Chillies Entertainment, said that Mr Khan answered all questions with grace and patience.
