New Delhi: After Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan vented his frustration on Twitter after being detained the third time at a US airport, United States ambassador Richard Verma issued a formal apology to the actor.

Sending out a tweet to the actor, the Indian-origin US ambassador said, “Sorry for the trouble at LAX @iamsrk. We are working to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Your work inspires millions, including the US.”


Shah Rukh was quick in replying the US ambassador and tweeted, “No trouble sir, respect the protocol & not expecting 2 b above it. It’s just a tad inconvenient. Thx for ur concern.”




Khan, who has been detained in the past, vented out his frustration on Twitter, “I fully understand and respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every…time really really s****.”

In 2012, Shah Rukh Khan was detained at the New York airport for 2-3 hours. Asked about the incident later in an interview, Khan had said that he held no grudges against the officials but it was unbecoming to be detained and kept waiting without any apparent reason.
