BOLLYWOOD star Shah Rukh Khan has highlighted key concerns of invasive full-body scanners set to be rolled out across Australia’s airports.
The controversial technology allows security to detect non-metallic devices, objects and weapons on a person’s body but also reveals organs and genitals in the process.
UK Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis assured the concerned public that the images would be destroyed immediately, following the introduction of the scanners at the nation’s major airports, including Heathrow.
Mr Khan highlighted the weaknesses of the new technology in regards to privacy when he told BBC talk show host Jonathan Ross that he autographed printed scans of his body for female security officers.
