An unwarranted hue and cry is being made out of Shah Rukh Khan’s detention at Los Angeles. The actor was infact not detained but interrogated at the US airport which is a normal procedure in that country for safety reasons and the media should not make a mountain out of a molehill. Every country follows its security protocol and the authorities in India should infact take a leaf out of US security agencies and tighten security on our airports so that terrorism can be stalled if entry points are properly sealed on our shores.
Shah Rukh Khan is a great actor but not above law and he himself tweeted that he respects such protocol for safety reasons. Yes, it causes hardships to travellers at times but it is always better to be safe than sorry. He is a celebrity and anybody can escape in his body double if they are not properly scanned which is the reason why he has faced such treatment at US airports time and again. But the noble soul understands this and has not thrown any tantrums inspite of his popularity which speaks volumes of his greatness!
