Muslim cast and crew members of My Name Is Khan denied US visas


By Bollywood Hungama News Network

By now its common knowledge that after doing all the publicity and promotional drive for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Shah Rukh Khan has embarked along with good friend Karan Johar to Los Angeles for the shooting of his next film My Name Is Khan. The film re-unites the super-hit jodi of SRK and Kajol after a hiatus of nearly 7 years (they were last seen in Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham in 2001)

However, even before shooting could commence in full swing, the unit of My Name Is Khan has been hit by a roadblock. Some Muslim members from the cast and crew of the film have been denied US visas. Among these include SRK's personal staff and also actor Aamir Bashir (who was last seen in A Wednesday).

Post the Mumbai terror attacks, the US consulate has become extremely cautious of issuing visas and reports say that despite telling them that they were going for a shoot, the authorities didn't budge.

Now the rejected members, left with no option, have submitted fresh applications and are praying for better luck this time around.
