Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday wondered what was the "big deal" about the detention of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan as it "happens all the time".

"Honestly what's the big deal?? This airport detention thing happens all the time & to all sorts of people. Get over it," Abdullah tweeted.

Shah Rukh Khan, who has millions of fans in India and around the world, was detained at New York's White Plains airport for two hours Thursday as he arrived to visit Yale University, where he was honoured as a Chubb Fellow.

Shah Rukh, detained by the immigration authorities, was allowed to go only after his hosts intervened and took up the issue with the Department of Homeland Security in Washington, according to sources.

India took up the matter with the US authorities and made it clear to Washington that "a policy of detention and apology" cannot continue.

honestly, I think this is being made into a much bigger deal than it is... the US doesn't care that he's a big movie star, he's just like any other person! And this guy is right, it happens to a lot of people all the time!!! Can't believe the Indian government is actually pursuing this so much... aren't there other better things they could be spending time and money on

another rant from our great politician! Sleepy<br/>n for those living under a rock, Shahrukh DID NOT complain, people n the govt are! <br/>d'uh, nobbers commenting without even knowing the truth.
Law is same for every1, it is only in India that rich powerful people are above it. It is 'coz of the tight security that no one has been able to bomb US, while India keeps suffering terrorism n feeding terrorists in the jails!

Omar Abdullah needs to get ego out of his head. Its not alright if it is happening for the 2nd or 3rd time. India needs to take a strong stand.

Just to make one thing clear---SRK hasn't complained about it at all. It's the fans and the indian gov't who for some reason feel the need to stretch this occurrence which by the way was totally justified since laws are laws and everyone has to follow them. SRK just laughed it off and that's why I love him even more :D

Totally agree... What do they expect? SRK will have. Different channel of immigration? Gosh just get over with it... And he needs to be prepared that this can happen again not cos he is SRK but cos he is just a regular visitor like any other human who needs to go thru this security...
