Khan vs. Newark


Bollywood MEGA star Shahrukh Khan was detained last week in Newark Airport for two hours after being suspected as a high alert security threat for his Muslim last name, only being set free upon intervention from the Indian Embassy in the United States.

In a complete irony of fate chockful of spice, Khan was in the US to promote his new film, My Name Is Khan, that tells the story of a Muslim Indian wrongly profiled and detained for being falsely implicated with the 9/11 terrorist plot.

Of course, while held up the Bollywood actor dropped the fact that he was a famous superstar, but apparently Newark authorities do not have access to a google search toolbar.

Nothing delights me more than the fact that The Daily Show covered a segment on this.
