Saif Ali Khan rubbishes report of Lucknow airport tiff: UPDATE

We heard that the Nawab of Pataudi was asked to leave Lucknow airport’s VIP lounge on Thursday, but Saif himself denied the report and plans to take legal action against the news agency

There were reports about Saif Ali Khan being involved in a tiff with the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at Lucknow airport. However, the Race 2 actor has been caught totally unawares with the turn of events. “This is totally baseless. There was no tiff of any kind. What has come out as ‘news’ is in fact totally distorted. It was a polite conversation and nothing as dramatic as what is being put on print actually happened at all… I am inclined to take an action now and my lawyers are working on suing the ones responsible behind this news-piece. Stories like these are damaging,” informs Saif Ali Khan. The joint General Manager – Operations at the airport, who reached out to Saif immediately is a good friend of the actor.

The story goes that Saif was in Lucknow to shoot for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s action flick Bullet Raja. And being a Nawab, he wouldn’t have expected even in his wildest dreams that his ‘highness’ would go for a toss in the city of Nawabs. And if you think the Race 2 actor got into a tiff with the airport security officials and created a scene like the hotel brawl last year, you’re right! When he was asked to move out, Saif tried to throw his weight around, but he was forcibly evicted and allowed to re-enter only when senior officials intervened.

Reports suggested that Saif also had a tiff with the security personnel at the airport which the actor has now denied.
