John Abraham feels the airport officials were just doing their duty when they detained Shah Rukh Khan, speaking as an individual who was also detained in 2009.
John has been reported saying the following, “Every country does its due diligence. Getting into India for foreigners is like hell… it’s not easy. The US is also doing whatever they can to make their country safe, so it is justified. It all depends on how personally you take the issue, and Shah Rukh handled it with a lot of grace.”
John also adds, “I have been in that detention space, where the FBI was called in because I had Afganistan mentioned in my passport, as I had shot there for two months for my film Kabul Express. There wasn`t much hue and cry about this as I never wanted to use the incident as a media peg for the film. I was in for six hours and I was asked the strangest questions. And of course, Shah Rukh would agree that racial profiling could be a pretty much correct term for it (interrogation) because it’s mostly coloured people who are detained.”
