Shah Rukh Khan detained at US immigration

India has reacted sharply to Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's questioning by US airport immigration authorities, saying "detention and apology" have become a US habit.

India lodged a diplomatic complaint after Khan said he was detained for over 90 minutes on Thursday when he landed at New York's small White Plains airport on his way to deliver a speech at Yale University.

"More than an apology will have to take place," Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur was quoted as saying in New Delhi by the semi-official Press Trust of India on Saturday.

The United States has apologised and denied allegations that Khan was singled out because of his Muslim name after the star jetted in on a private plane.
