Post Interrogated by Customs, SRK remains mum and does not cry discrimination!

When he was detained at a US airport a couple of years ago, Shah Rukh Khan went on a tirade about how he was discriminated because he is a Muslim.

Now the same SRK was mum despite being held back for interrogation and fined Rs. 1.5 lakh as duty by Customs at Mumbai airport.

Quote:
SRK pays a hefty Rs 1.5 lac fine for excess baggage
By: Mauli Singh Date: 2011-07-19 Place: Mumbai

He was halted and interrogated by custom authorities at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport while returning from London on Thursday.

A source informs, "SRK had gone on a family holiday to Holland and London. On his way back he was carrying with him about 20 bags. Thus, the custom officials at airport interrogated him, while his family was allowed to go.

The interrogation was conducted by a team of deputy collector, Customs, Sameer Wankhede. Shah Rukh had to pay a duty of approximately Rs 1.5 lakh."

An eyewitness says, "The customs treated Khan, no differently than other passengers. They didn't give him any special treatment. He wasn't even allowed to make a phone call."

Customs commissioner, P M Govande confirms, "Yes, he was interrogated but it is a routine thing. Whenever people bring stuff they have to pay duty on it.

It was nearly R 1.5 lakh and the interrogation took time because he was carrying a lot of stuff."

really a steal man
when i was returning from london, the fellow told me few hundred pounds for every extra kg. assuming 100 bucks per extra kg, 18 excess bags of avg 10 kg each it works out to 100*18*10 GBP or roughly 15 lakhs INR. They worked out the typical '10%' deal

he was mum because he realized that he did not post timely "hapta" to Congress...he was made aware in subtle way that those who evade "hapta" can be humiliated in public

These people are so rich; why do they cheap out in paying their duty?
If they want to evade this, why do they have to buy sooo much in the first place?

I dont think anyone said SRK was evading taxes. He had 20 bags and the customs charged him 1.5 lakh. That is all that happened . Whatever else you are reading is all media dhakosla .

Typical behavior of Indian wives ... Karan Johar went home while poor SRK had to answer customs people.

Okay that is fine, but he was detained for a while. This time no shouting 'My Name is Khan and hence discrimination'.

In the US, the Immigration stopped him for checking on his visa, etc, like they do at random for anyone arriving into USA. So he had made a big deal about it.

Maybe he was promoting for his movie " My name is Khan " . And maybe he saw an opportunity to capitalize of that . He was potraying a exploited moslem from US in that movie .
