When his tweet was noticed by the Indian embassy in Moscow, they replied through their official Twitter handle, "Embassy officials are in touch with Russian authorities regarding the issue."

According to a source, the damage wasn't detected at the Mumbai airport."Hence, it was only after Karanvir reached Moscow, that the Russian immigration officials raised an objection. While Karanvir was at the Moscow airport for the last four hours, we hear that the Russian embassy, the Indian embassy and a lot of other people quickly worked towards getting the issue sorted and having Karanvir enter their country and attend the festival he was originally there for," said the source.

Few hours later, Indian Embassy has issued Karanvir a temporary passport and visa, the actor thanked Indian Embassy in Moscow and Sushma Swaraj. "I have no words to thank the  @IndEmbMoscow 4 helping me get a brand new temporary passport and a visa.celebrity or no celebrity,  i know one thing for sure, we Indians are in very safe hands when we travel abroad... thanks to @SushmaSwaraj and the #IndianEmbassy for their help," reads his latest tweet
