British airport dismisses SRK's body scanner image claims

February 11, 2010 11:59 IST

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's claim that he signed printouts of 'nude' security scans of his body at the Heathrow airport in London have been dismissed by the airport owner British Airports Authority.

The airport has labelled Shah Rukh's claims 'completely factually incorrect,' reports The Age.

BAA said the claims 'simply could not be true,' insisting the scanners had no facility for printing images or storing them.

While on Jonathan Ross' BBC talk show, the Indian actor had expressed his concerns over full-body scanners, saying they breach a person's privacy.

"I came out (of the scanner) and then I saw these girls and they had these printouts," Khan said.

He added: "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."

The scanners are currently in use at Heathrow and Manchester airports.
