Shah Rukh Khan Says He Was Detained at Newark Liberty

From the Washington Post:

Shah Rukh Khan, 43, known here as the King of Bollywood, was on his way to Chicago for a parade later Saturday to mark India’s Independence Day when immigration officials at Newark pulled him aside and interrogated him. The star of scores of top-grossing films was released after Indian consular officials vouched for him.

“I was really hassled — perhaps because of my name being Khan,” he said in a text message to reporters in India. “These guys just wouldn’t let me through.”

So in addition to being the Summer of Death, is this also the Summer of Famous People Being Questioned by Authorities?
