Mumbai: Bollywood's King Khan, Shah Rukh is famous, rich and 'not a terrorist'. But then, why does the actor often get detained at American airports? The actor was detained today at the Los Angeles airport for which the US state department eventually apologised.
Hours after Shah Rukh Khan was detained at Los Angeles airport by the US immigration department, Twitter went abuzz with jokes on the Bollywood superstar.
Users of the micro-blogging site posted their views using the hashtag #ShahRukhKhan, which soon became a top trend.
"Why always #ShahRukhKhan gets detained at USA airports. The officials this time must have watched his recent movies," a Twitter user wrote.

"Don Ka Intezaar To 11 Mulko Ki Police Kar Rahi Hai... But US is Not Included in those 11 Mulk!," posted another citing the 50-year-old actor's famous dialouge from 2006 movie ‘Don’.
Many compared it with the ‘Dilwale’ star's intolerance statement which he made last year.
"So,.... How do you rate the.. "Intolerance"... There in US, Mr Khan?," wrote a Twitter user.
"#ShahRukhKhan detained at US airport ? Again ? One more time sing that #Intolerance song baby!," tweeted another.
"#ShahRukhKhan Global star but every country has its own rules. No celeb bigger than National Security. SRK should not complain. Be Tolerant," another Twitterati wrote.

It's not India where you can simply cry intolerance to get away with tax frauds. It's USA, law is above all. Enjoy 😎
