A Bollywood heart-throb has made a mockery of an invasive new airport security system set to be introduced in Australia.
The British transport secretary said last week images taken by new full-body X-ray scanners, which capture in detail the human anatomy, would be destroyed immediately and not pose a risk to travellers’ privacy.

“I came out [of the scanner] and then I saw these girls and they had these printouts,” Khan said.
“So I looked at them, I thought maybe it’s a form you’re supposed to [sign] … and you could see everything inside.
“And then I’ve autographed them for them.”
