If Music Could Talk - Podcast Link- August 16th 2009 -music for Indian Independence Day, and more..

Indian Independence Day was celebrated this past weekend (Aug 15th.. since 1947)


Shahrukh Khan gets detained at NY airport

this weekend SRK flew into New York to promote his new film, and take part in various Indian Independence Day celebrations...

apparently, they must have singled him out for his Muslim name.. they held him for questioning, searched his bags, wouldnt let him use his cell phone.. among several other "internationals" being held that day in security , one Pakistani individual even said something like "he's Shahrukh Khan!! I can vouch for him!" - the authorities (idiots!!!) wouldnt budge until the Indian Consulate finally intervened...

while some sources claimed "he's angry.. outraged!!".. another source (IBNlive) quoted him in a surprisingly down to earth and humble manner, dignantly downplaying the debacle :

When later asked during an interview whether he was angry, Khan responded that, "I did feel bad for a lot of people in that room, I know because I had an escort and someone would recognise me, I will get out. Others may face more trouble [...] I have extra security because of my name. I can handle this but when you have someone as respectable as an ex-president getting frisked, I am nobody" (in reference to the frisking of President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam earlier in the summer). Khan later stated that, "I think it is a procedure that needs to be followed. But it is an unfortunate procedure." When asked if he would demand an apology, Khan replied that he would not.

It just so happens, that Sharukh Khan, SRK, is also working on a new film dealing with this very issue. ( Its such a coincidence, that if somehow this whole thing is just a publicity stunt.. well that would be just wrong.)

"My Name Is Khan"

additional info on wikipedia

oh, here's a silly little video by a US based artist named FLASH called "Shahrukh Khan"

is it just my imagination or are they feeding him Nachos and Lays to make a play on the Hindi word for "dance" Nachle? (3:03)
