It has been reported that yesterday Bolywood star Shah Rukh Khan was detained and held for over two hours by U.S. immigration officials.  He arrived in New York from India by private jet for the purpose of addressing students at Yale University.  

According to Wikipedia, Khan is commonly referred to as the "King of Bollywood."  He has been credited with over 70 Hindi films, winning fourteen Filmfare Awards, and thirty nominations, sharing the record for the highest number of Best Actor awards. In 2005, the Government of India honored Khan with the Padma Shri for his contributions towards Indian cinema.

Khan was accompanied by Nita Ambani, Founder and Chairperson of the Dhirubhai Ambani International School.  She was not detained.

Khan commented: “Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kicked the star out of stardom,”  Sarcastially he remarked that next time he will tell immigration officials that he is white.
