Media reports had said that Salman called off the trip after Shah Rukh was detained and questioned by immigration officials at Newark airport for over two hours Aug 14.
"This is completely false. Not going to New York was a decision taken by the producers and Salman didn't even know about it. He is unnecessarily being dragged into all this. We refused to go to the US because the proposal offered to us for the event there was not acceptable to us. That's it," Kapoor told IANS.
"News reports said that Salman was to be in New York on September 3. That is also completely untrue," he added.
Wanted, a film by noted choreographer-turned-director Prabhu Deva, stars Salman and Ayesha Takia. The action flick is slated for release Sep 18.
