Kamal Hassan says he had same experience as Shah Rukh Khan in airport

‘I too had experience in America like Shah Rukh Khan.  I do not regret that.  I relish the problem.  In fact, I am to change my name as ‘Qamal Hassan’’ said actor Kamal Hassan humorously. 

When Kamal was asked about the instance Shah Rukh Khan encountered at American airport he said ‘Is it Shah Rukh Khan alone… Americans view me too with suspicion.  It is usual there.  Why one should get tense for this?’

Further he added ‘When my name is pronounced it sounds like a Muslim name.  When my father christened me he knew such suspicions would arise.’

‘My father used to ask me whether anybody enquired about my name and whether they took me for a Muslim.’  

‘Whenever I visit America, my name causes confusion amidst Americans.  I had same experience as Shah Rukh Khan in the airport.  I was intercepted in Canada airport’

 ‘They asked me questions for half an hour.  Only after knowing such confusion will arise, my father named me.’

‘My brothers were named Chandra Hassan and Charu Hassan… and mischievously my father named me Kamal Hassan.  In a way, I relish the confusion my name causes.  I feel happy.’

‘I am to change my name with word Q as begin of the word.  Problem should arise as I name myself that way, and I should relish the problem.’

‘Americans are cautious following destruction of Twin Towers.  That is why they intercepted Shah Rukh Khan.  It is natural.  Moreover, Shah Rukh Khan himself did not mind that… and in spite of that there are thousand other opinions.’

‘Immediate response for such issues should be stopped.’

‘Could Afghan students easily get accommodation here in India…?  At least, do we contemplate solution…? So, we should take pains to remove the wrong belief in us.’
