The US immigration is at it again. Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at Los Angeles airport by the immigration department on Friday.
The actor confirmed the news on Twitter and wrote this: “I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks.”
Shah Rukh, who is known for his sense of humour as much as for his acting skills, said during his detention at an US airport, he managed to catch “nice Pokemons.”

“The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons,” he said.
In spite of the global stardom that he enjoys, Shah Rukh has repeatedly been subjected to detentions for security checks at airports in the United States.
In 2012, when he was in the US to make a speech at the Yale University, the actor was detained for over two hours at New York airport. And, in 2009, he was held by immigration officials at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey because his name showed up on a computer alert list.
