Shah Rukh Khan’s claim of having autographed his naked body scans at London’s Heathrow Airport, was “completely and factually incorrect,” a British Airport Authority (BBA) spokesperson said.

In an interview to the BBC, Khan claimed some girls, employed as security, had shown him printouts of his nude frame, taken while he was being scanned. “I autographed them,” he said.

The BBA spokesperson told The Telegraph, UK, this was impossible as there was no equipment to print the scans.

Khan’s comment, however, has restarted the debate in Britain over whether these newly introduced scanners — which bare even the genitals — violate individual privacy.
