New Delhi: A homeward-bound Ranbir Kapoor was detained at the Mumbai International Airport on Saturday morning. The actor hadn’t declared several duty-free items that were with him. After an inquiry session lasting for close to three hours and a fine of more than Rs. 50,000, the actor was let off.
Ranbir was returning from London via a British Airways’ aircraft and was detained by authorities at the Mumbai International Airport when the undeclared stuff was found with him.
Despite running into several controversies every now and then, the Kapoor scion had always been able to steer clear of such issues in the past. However, this time around, RK had to clarify his carrying the undeclared items. The actor was detained for around half hour, interrogated and later directed to pay a penalty of Rs.60,000 before he was allowed to go, the official added.
Not very long ago, Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan had been detained at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi for carrying undeclared currency amounting to about 1.24 lakh US dollars. During that incident, the singer had to face inquiries for several hours.
