Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was detained at the Los Angeles airport yet again by the United States (US) immigration officials for questioning on Thursday because a man with the same name is on the U.S. no-fly list of around 80,000 people.

The 50-year-old actor let out his frustration by putting out a tweet:

"I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks," he said.

"The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons."

While there was no response from the immigration department, the U.S. State Department's Assistant Secretary on South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Biswal responded to Khan's tweet saying:

But it seems the news didn't go down well with Khan's fans who took it upon themselves to defend the actor on Twitter, while some went against him.
