Shah Rukh Treated Unfairly on the US Border

Khan, a huge film star in India, says he was treated unfairly during immigration screening at Newark Airport, causing him embarrassment and discomfort. His comments have stirred anger among Indians. Reporting from New Delhi - Bollywood mega-star Shah Rukh Khan returned to India today, telling fans that the U.S. immigration screening process was discriminatory and involved bizarre and irrelevant questions -- even as he denied that his strong reaction was a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie , Los Angeles Times reports.

"I'm not angry about the incident but it was embarrassing. The questions asked by the authorities were strange and irrelevant," Khan said during a press conference at his home 'Mannat' in Bandra , Press Trust of India reports.

Returning to India, the 43-year-old actor dismissed suggestions that the controversy, which triggered outrage among his millions of loyal fans, was created to promote his next film, "My Name Is Khan".

The movie deals with the experiences of Muslims in the United States after the September 11, 2001 attacks and tackles the contentious issue of racial profiling.

"It's not a publicity stunt. It's not about my upcoming movie. I know that the media has made it an issue," Khan told a news conference in Mumbai , AFP reports.
