Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was en-route to Chicago for a parade to mark Independence Day, when he was detained and questioned at Newark airport.
After a couple of hours’ interrogation, the 43-year-old actor was allowed to make a call, getting in touch with the Indian consulate, who vouched for him and secured his release.
Are Indians over-reacting? Or is the U.S. taking things a bit too far? Khan is a celebrity, but what about ordinary Indians, who travel to the U.S. — do they face racial profiling?
