Shahrukh Khan held at Mumbai airport
Shahrukh Khan’s London and Holland trip with his family proved too pricey for him. On landing at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, he was stopped by the custom officials for carrying excess baggage. He was released ony after paying custom duty of Rs 1.5 lakh.
He was stopped for interrogation while his family was allowed to go home. Only after extensive investigation and paying a hefty custom duty, King Khan was allowed to go home.
King Khan and his family have done excess shopping and they retuned back with 20 baggage. He was treated like any general public and was not provided any special treatment.
An eyewitness says, "The customs treated Khan, no differently than other passengers. They didn't give him any special treatment. He wasn't even allowed to make a phone call."
Customs commissioner, P M Govande confirms, "Yes, he was interrogated but it is a routine thing. Whenever people bring stuff they have to pay duty on it.
It was nearly R 1.5 lakh and the interrogation took time because he was carrying a lot of stuff."
