Hi.....
 
"The U.S. government was an inadvertent accomplice to 20th Century Fox, which is investing millions in this movie," chuckling, referring to a joint venture between Hollywood and Bollywood to distribute the film"
 
 
"I was really being hassled, perhaps because of my name being Khan," actor Shah Rukh Khan
 
Srk ordeal at a Us airport is "Not a big deal" There have been no attacks there since 9/11 because of their stringent security measures. I think it (the security check) is a good thing - Salman Khan
 
 
Do you this this is a publicity stunt for Shahrukh's new film..."My name is Khan"
 
Do you think Shahrukh can do anything for his movie??

This is rubbish excuse for discrimination against people from India and Pakistan.  I believe u are referring to SRK being held up for 2 hours at USA Airport Security.

Hey
 
Actually the above incident if it happened as its being reported then ..its quite an unfortunate thing to happen ...but really laws are laws and they are the same for everybody .....and i think anybody going to the US has to bear some of this !!!
 
As for questions regarding it being a publicity stunt .....cud be ...especially the way its being handled in the media....dont no for sure!!!
 
And as far SRK doing any thing for his movie ...well thats so true ..i can expect anything from him ...and he is the one whose actually started this thing in bollywood with most of the others following him!!!

Do you think a superstar like SRK need any publicity stunt for any his movies?
SRK movies are sold bcoz he works in them.....his fans often dont care abt the script they watch the movie coz of SRK.
SO I REALLY DON'T THINK THAT IT'S HIS PUBLICITY STUNT COZ SOME MOVIE WITH ALMOST THE SAME SUBJECT HAVE ALREADY BEEN HIGHLY APPRECIATED BY THE AUDIENCE.

Hey Believe....

Well what a coincidence, our friend circle at school today were talking about precisely this matter only? Most of us, excluding me though, thought that it was indeed a publicity stunt...

Actually, personally, I feel that, as one member said, someone like SRK does not need a publicity stunt to that caliber you know, especially if he is found out, the consequences may be irreparable, especially the disrespect he would gain in a very short span of time...

Moreover, he was caught by the American police force right? And stated that he felt humiliated and everything, especially when he was there for an Independence day ceremony... So, No, I don't think it was a publicity stunt of any sort, especially when it has only a very so distinct link with his movie...

But come on, this is the world of showbiz... Who knows? Perhaps it was one in fact...

Cheers,
Sneha...

PS. At least we have some nice, sensible topics to discuss in the midst of it all!!... Thanks for that!!...

Speaking from personal experience, such things happen everyday at the US Airports. After a while, you just get used to having such a damn name that keeps others on high alert. Now that it happens to a celeb, its all across the news, what people forget is that there are a million, everyday "Khan"s who undergo the same procedures.

As far as it being a stunt goes, who knows, its Bollywood, drama is prevalent.

I can never say something for sure about filmi people, dont get me started on the list of examples
 
morever, if you have passed through Newark Intl airport you would notice they treat everyone the same, shitty, As far as being treated badly by authorities, Even dense Harvard proffesors feel they should be treated differently b'cos they are someone to a big shot celebrity, so SRK kis khel ki muli haiWink
 
Seriously though, just to give an idea who is being branded as racist hereLOL been thru Newark's INS check point, half of them are mexicans, the rest of the half are womenLOL 
 
I have been thru that immigration center in 3 mins and once it took me 2 hrs, Given the fact that my flight reaches there early in the morning, If I have to blame someone it is the person who made the officer happy or mad the prior nightWink
