A TV actor accused of child abuse!

Just in.

Saw the horrific news, a child is being made to work at home as a maid/labourer. Worst the child is also abused and the marks on the eyes, hands clearly demonstrate the amount of abuse.

Now come to think of it and its allegedly done by some educated and "famous" personality who works in the television industry and is a young actor.

What kind of abuse is this?

Shahrukh Khan detention @ Newark, US

Most of us who have travelled to the US post 9/11 understand the importance that is attached to security procedures.

I find the whole Shahrukh Khan episode a major blow up by the media and it now appears more a circus than anything else for the sake of entertainment. The only concern in the whole episode is that it took 2 hours and Shahrukh wasn’t allowed to speak to his friends over the phone during the 2 hour long ordeal.

I have had a firsthand experience of being in the same(?) room at Newark, as Shahrukh many years back when it was my first trip to the US. The whole questioning took 10-15 minutes and was a fairly smooth affair.

Let’s not blow these incidents beyond a point and make the whole thing a ego trip for a Superstar (did I miss the word “Global”…err.. sorry Shahrukh King Khan).
