A day after he returned home from the US, actor Shah Rukh Khan has got an invitation from California Governor and Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Schwarzenegger has invited Shah Rukh for dinner to Washington DC on September 20. Arnold extended the invitation after he came to know of Shah Rukh’s detention drama at the Newark Airport in New Jersey.
However, it’s not clear whether Shah Rukh has accepted the invitation.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday Shah Rukh addresed a press conference about his detention. He said his experience at the Newark airport’s immigration counter in the US was “embarrassing” and he was not complaining to gain publicity.
“I am scared of the authorities and rules, so I try to follow the rules of the country I travel to. Whenever I am in America, I have to report at least two hours in advance while travelling within the country for security reasons — they ask me to take off my clothes and shoes, and I do that. But I never experienced this kind of treatment,” Khan told reporters in Mumbai on his arrival here four days after he was detained for two hours at the Newark airport.
Khan denied that the detention drama was a publicity stunt for his forthcoming movie My Name Is Khan. “I don’t think that I need publicity,” he said.
“If you want to give a tit-for-tat policy to American actors, then call me to frisk Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox whenever they are visiting India,” he added.
