SRK US detention shows cold war with Big B continues
Shah Rukh Khan, who returned to India after being detained by the US officials at the Newark airport for over two hours for security check- up, has slammed Amar Singh (read Bachchan camp, Singh is a close family friend of Bachchans) for saying that it was all meant to promote his upcoming flick ‘My Name Is Khan’. King Khan went on to thrash Amar Singh, the politically powerful friend of Amitabh Bachchan, by saying that such mean things could have come only from a mean mind, and he(SRK) was certainly above all such petty things. Shah Rukh Khan’s reasoning was simple that he was too big a bollywood icon to need such cheap publicity, and in any case being held at any airport was never a matter of pride for any individual.
Earlier, Amar Singh, who is being taken care of by Amitabh Bachchan in Singapore after his kidney transplantation, had said that Shah Rukh was making detention an issue to promote his latest flick ‘My Name Is Khan’.The industry observers see the whole development of Shah Rukh Khan slamming Amar Singh as a clear proof of ongoing cold war between Amitabh Bachchan and King Khan. The industry insiders feel that Amar Singh could not have made such a statement without the consent and knowledge of Amitabh Bachchan, who is staying with him in Singapore. In fact, while slamming Shah Rukh Khan for making the whole thing miserable, Amar Singh had even quoted the instance of Amitabh Bachchan that how he submitted to the scrutiny of US officials without any complaints or grouse.
Amar Singh had also thrashed Shah Rukh Khan for considering himself above the law of a country.Shah Rukh Khan’s retaliation to Amar Singh’s comments is likely to create further tension between Bachchans and King Khan camp, and all the efforts of reconciliation being made by the likes of Karan Johar would come to naught.Earlier, at Karan Johar’s birthday bash, Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri and Abhishek-Aishwarya were seen conversing animatedly, and it was conjectured that there had been a visible thaw in the cold war between Bachchans and Shah Rukh Khan. But after the latest incident, the cold war seems to be very much on and getting hot under the collar too.In the mean time, Shah Rukh Khan has been invited by Hollywood star and current Californian governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to have dinner with him at his residence.
This invitation came to Shah Rukh Khan after the incident made headlines in the world media, but he chose to return to India. It is not clear if Shah Rukh Khan is willing to travel back to the US so soon to attend the dinner after being humiliated in such a manner. However, the date of dinner has been extended now to September 20, so that Shah Rukh Khan can make up his mind in this regard. It may be recalled that after the humiliating US detention, Shah Rukh Khan had said that he would like to limit his travel to the US, and would prefer going to other countries for shooting of his films etc.
