shah rukh khan (3)


Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has been detained at U.S. airports 3 times in the last 7 years.

On Thursday, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at Los Angeles International Airport — a common experience for Muslims who dare ask a flight attendant for a soda or read a book about Syrian art.

Khan knew the drill: it marked his third time being detained at an airport in the last seven years, according to the Guardian.

The Guardian reported that Khan was first detained in 2009 at Newark Airport for over two hours by U.S. immigration officials. But even after the backlash from fans and fellow actors over the wrongful detention, Khan was taken into custody again in 2012, again in New York.

Khan, though, had a sense of humor about the most recent incident — tweeting out a joke about Pokémon.
