Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was detained at an American airport, should have displayed patriotic credentials and returned to India after another "insult" in the US, the Shiv Sena said here today.
Observing that the "tolerant actor" goes to the US repeatedly, the Sena said if he had decided to return, it would have been a slap on the face of the US.
The Sena was reacting to Khan's detention at a US airport, the third time in seven years. The Bollywood actor was detained briefly at the Los Angeles International Airport yesterday.
"This has been a common occurrence with Shah Rukh at most big US airports. Still, this tolerant actor goes to the US repeatedly, only to get insulted," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana said.
"He should have returned, displaying patriotic credentials, and telling the US that 'I won't step into your country if you are going to insult me in this manner,' the Sena said.
