The news of Shah Rukh Khan being detained at US airport for immigration spread like fire this morning. After that Shah Rukh Khan posted on social media about his displeasure on being detained time and again at US airport.

But nevertheless he was patient with the US authorities and cooperated throughout the process.

The ever active SRK posted on social media over his detention and within hours US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Biswal apologized for the same and wrote on social media, “Sorry for the hassle at the airport even American diplomats get pulled for extra screening!”

In response, Shah Rukh wrote, “No hassle ma'am. Respect the protocol, not expecting to be above it. Appreciate your graciousness, it's just inconvenient.”

The US ambassador to India, Richard Verma, also apologized to the superstar.

“Sorry for the trouble at LAX … We are working to ensure it doesn't happen again. Your work inspires millions, including in the US.”

Shah Rukh responded, “No trouble sir, respect the protocol and not expecting to be above it. It's just a tad inconvenient. Thanks for your concern.”

Amidst the chaos and tension SRK kept himself entertained during the detention by playing Pokemon Go.

“The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons,” he posted.

This is not the first time Shah Rukh was detained at a US airport.

In 2009, he was stopped at the Newark Airport, New Jersey, and was released after two hours at the intervention of the Indian consulate in New York.
