Reports claim the Bollywood actor, who was in the US to address Yale University students, was 'very, very upset' at the episode.

"Khan was very very upset at the episode. Yale University officials had to contact the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Department at Washington, when they come to know about his detention," sources said.

In 2009 also, he was stopped at the Newark airport and was released after two-hour of grilling.
