Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan detained once again by the US Immigrations, early on Friday morning.

The actor was detained at the Los Angeles airport in the US and took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express himself.
 

The Bollywood superstar retained his humour and found an entertaining way to pass his time.
Nisha Desai Biswal, an Indian-American who is assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian affairs in the United States Department of State, though tweeted a reponse, saying even official diplomats have similar experiences.
However, this is not for the first time the actor was detained. In 2009, Khan was detained at Newark airport because his surname featured on the most common list. In 2014, he was stopped for extended questioning by US airport authorities.

US ambassador to India, Richard Verma apologises to Shah Rukh Khan, says he is working to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
