Khan had joined the roster of Yale University’s Chubb Fellows, one of the Ivy League institution’s highest honours, on 12 April, 2012 for promoting human ideals through art.

However, the actor's visit to Yale last year ran into controversy when Khan was detained for over two hours at the White Plains airport in New York by immigration authorities. He was travelling in a private plane and was accompanied by Nita Ambani, wife of Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani.

The episode had caused some tense moments for the university and Khan’s team as Yale officials contacted the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Department in Washington before Khan was cleared by the immigration.
