The Gangs Of Wasseypur actor had to face an embarrassing situation recently. Read on to find out more…
Richa Chadda, who was last seen in Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela had recently flown to Delhi to meet her family and cater to a work commitment. But while returning to Mumbai, she was apparently questioned for two hours by the custom officials at the Delhi airport. Reason? A skincare item that the actor was carrying aroused suspicion among officials.
Reportedly, Richa has been following an Ayurvedic beauty and skin care routine. Instead of taking tablets, she prefers talc; on this trip too, she had carried the same in her bag. The officials thought that the beauty powder was a suspicious item. After questioning the Gangs Of Wasseypur actor for over two hours, she was allowed to fly.
“I am a big believer in Ayurveda and was carrying my Ayurvedic supplements to Mumbai. However, the security found the talc to be suspicious. I didn’t want them to confiscate my items, as they are tough to procure; it took me a while to convince them. Thankfully, I didn’t miss my flight,” Richa was quoted by a tabloid.
If you will remember, not so long ago, even Kangana Ranaut was detained at the Delhi airport. Apparently the Queen actor had not paid custom duty on some expensive goods. Reportedly the custom officials asked the Queen actor and her sister Rangoli (who was also traveling with her) to pay the duty, but since they didn’t have cash on them, they had to wait for two-and-a-half hours at the airport till the duty was cleared.
