Shah Rukh Khan detained at US airport
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he was detained at a US airport.
 
"I fully understand and respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks," Shah Rukh said in a tweet posted on Friday morning (IST).
 
Precise details of when and why he was detained were not known. But Bollywood sources have said the actor was in Los Angeles.
 
On a positive note, he wrote: "The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons."
 
This is not the first time that Shah Rukh, one of Hindi film industry's most successful stars, has been detained at a US airport.
 
In 2012, the "My Name Is Khan" actor was detained at a New York airport for two hours when he had arrived to visit Yale University, where he was honoured as a Chubb Fellow.
 
Back in 2009, he was stopped at the Newark Airport, New Jersey, and was released after two hours at the intervention of the Indian consulate in New York.
 
"I was really hassled at the American Airport because of my name being Khan. It was absolutely uncalled for. I felt angry and humiliated," said Shah Rukh, who was then heading towards Chicago to participate in an Independence Day celebration event.
 
"It is a Muslim name and I think the name is common on their checklist," he had then said.

Google fined USD 6.7 mn for violating law in Russia
Russia's anti-monopoly watchdog said on Thursday it has fined technology giant Google 438 million rubles ($6.7 million) for violating competition law.
 
The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) said Google had forced mobile device manufacturers to pre-install its applications on mobile devices using the Android system, Xinhua reported.
 
Google was also accused of placing its applications at priority positions on the home page of mobile devices to the detriment of alternative software. Google's software also prevented the installation of applications of other developers, the FAS was quoted as saying.
 
"The Competition Law must be observed by all the companies that supply their products to the Russian Federation, including multinational corporations," Yelena Zayeva, Head of the Communications and Information Technologies Department of the FAS, said in the statement.
 
The FAS said Google must pay the fine within 60 days after the order becomes effective. The Russian side is still discussing related issues with the company. 
 
The FAS ruled against Google last September over the company's abuse of its dominant market position, following a complaint filed by Yandex, one of the leading Internet technology firms in Russia.
