US news story CNN Shah Rukh Khan interview Texas August 2009

Aug 17, 2009 7:20 pm US/Eastern Bollywood Star Treatment Raises Ire In US, Abroad In sheer fan numbers, Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most recognizable movie stars in the world. In nearly every country he travels to, Khan is given a red-carpet welcome and swarmed by thousands of adoring fans. But the 44-year-old megastar of Bollywood wasn’t recognized at Newark Liberty International Airport on Friday. He was detained by US Immigration officials for more than an hour and held for questioning. That treatment of the face of the Indian film industry, which churns out an estimated two films a day and generates billions of dollars in ticket sales each year, is reverberating in the US and abroad. In India on Sunday, angry fans burned a US flag in protest and fellow Indian film stars and political leaders condemned what they called “humiliating” treatment of the star. “It’s ironic they picked on someone who is such a symbol of progressive values in India and would be considered so anywhere else in the world,” said Wasim Khan — no relation — an Indian Muslim from Parsippany. “It should be a matter of concern for all of us who believe in a world of greater tolerance and peace and progressing toward a greater understanding among different peoples and cultures.” Although Hollywood earns more revenue and has more expensive productions, Bollywood dwarfs Hollywood in the number of movies it produces and the frenzy that surrounds its top stars. And nobody generates more fervor than the

    @iseeyouf MUSLIMS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DESPISED BY OTHER RELIGIONS BECAUSE THEY ASSUME ISLAM PROMOTES TERRORISM WHICH IS COMPLETLEY FALSE. BTW SRK IS ACTUALLY AN INDIAN ACTOR OF PAKISTANI ORIGIN. HE NEVER FACES THIS KINDDA DISCRIMINATION IN THE UK BECUZ MANY PAKISTANIS HAVE HIS BACK. IDK WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE PAKISTANI AMERICANS WHO TOLERATE RACISM IN AMERICA. HERE IN UK PAKISTANIS RETALIATE AGAINST RACISM.

  7. MrShadeviperx says:

    Big whoop, I was born and raised American. Racism is a part of life, get over it. As long as I have all the shnazzy perks of being an American, I literally couldn’t give two shits about what someone else thinks about me.

  8. candygir7 says:

    brain washed video games playing slave & only after entertainment & violence. you are the ideal citizen of corporate war profiteering USA. when you are black listed, harassed & everybody you meet is either threatened or tricked into not being in my life, when you invent something important, try to change injustices, simply start your own business, or express your own original opinions, you will have terrorist fascists of government as your enemies to fight in your new video game called reality.

  9. DonCorleoneQ8 says:

    He is a respectable guy !
    if some other big shot were in his shoes, he would make it as painful as it could be to the authorities in the US.

  10. Nafstar4Ever says:

    How could one not know who Shahrukh Khan is? His appeared in over 70 films! &i hate how people are hating on him for making this film.

  11. iseeyouf says:

    I think then we are BLIND. isn’t it? i don’t hope for a answer from
    anyone thanks for reading.

  12. iseeyouf says:

    I ask everybody few questions
    that why only Muslim are being deprived of their
    rights , land , country, education , facilities ,
    even their life’s ? why Muslim doesn’t even have
    a TV News media to put forward their demands ,
    needs etc? why They have no reservation in education
    sector or for jobs? why in-spite of 15% population
    share in India there is not even 1% Muslim graduates
    in India? still if you need to know why some of Muslims
    have accepted Terrorism (which is wrong)

  13. iseeyouf says:

    and today he (Shahrukh K.) himself
    is claiming is what being done to him was wrong.
    Pali hill society head was saying people of every
    caste sikh, chritian & Hindu live over there. why didnt they
    mentioned muslims this is indicative that there are no muslims
    in there society.
    But still he is regretting that this world has already
    passed a judgment against every Muslims that they are
    Terrorist & nothing else.

  14. iseeyouf says:

    Sharukh Stop behaving like a politician we all
    know your new movie was coming up (i.e. My name is Khan) and you are creating
    a new free ad campaign for that by creating this controversy.
    I think today Shahrukh Khan might have realized that
    how even innocent Muslims are being treated through
    out the world. ecently he was saying that Imraan Hashmi
    is putting fake allegations on pali hill society
    members of Bandra

  15. vardanology says:

  19. Sasukekillsitachi says:

    No country is safe when these FACIST america exist in this planet, they should be wiped off from the face of the earth.

  20. Sasukekillsitachi says:

    america offers nothing, it is one of the most hypocritical and filthiest of these countries with the least morals or culture.

    SRK was too being polite to this filthy country, and even gave a praise.

  21. candygir7 says:

    You are REPEATING lies you were fed on media and HIStory books written by those in power. Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, but you would not know that would you? USA & Canada are FASCIST nations. Democracy is when the rights of the individual protected; USA & Canada are MOB RULE by votes of ignorant & poorly informed people, & the choice is basically A or B, Democrats or Republicans. Socialism is Fascism & no free healthcare in USA, only oppression & profittering.

  22. xBaitMyScenex says:

    All nations have their dark pasts, even Canada where I’m from. we learn from those mistakes and now we areliving in the age of ‘political correctness’ and because of economical freedom americans have more choice and freedom than ever so much so that american believes and ideologies are being threatened by those taking advantage and manipulating the system. while USA is providing the best standard of living. they have their doors opened to those seeking asylum and avoiding war.

  23. aksh8feb says:

    cmon guys stop fighting liking kids… if u like being where u r, its gud… if u dont like the nation u live in, and want to change it, den try to do it else go find a better place to live… stop da blame game , and u must know dis kind of hatred among people like u against each other is what terrorist capitalise upon…

  24. candygir7 says:

    You obviously do not know USA’s history. USA has been invading nations for hundreds of years. In fact USA is United States of America Inc. who’s founders were war profiteers who took over nations and enslaved people to work the land & they as their actions shown, are destroying the earth and humanity. Are you aware of the not only using the resources of USA & other lands but also depleting (consuming & destroying) earth’s resources & with Monsanto; changing DNA of plant & living.
