Imran Khan didn't quite receive the welcome that he was expecting when he returned from New York a couple of days ago after promoting his upcoming film Break Ke Baad. On his arrival at the Mumbai International Airport, Imran was stopped by the Customs authorities over a small toy helicopter he was carrying.
Apparently, Imran had got himself a toy helicopter from New York that works on Wi-Fi. Little did the actor know that the customs authorities in Mumbai would have an objection to it. The officials demanded that Imran get permission from the Telecom Department for possessing such a toy. Restrictions have been imposed on import of aero models that run on certain radio bandwidths because of their possible interference with the communication networks of security agencies.
The officials confiscated the toy on the grounds of obtaining a clarification from the telecom department. Imran tried to reason with the authorities, but they asked him to seek permission from the telecom department and then take the toy. Like a good law abiding citizen, Imran had no choice but to leave his toy helicopter behind. The actor plans to now seek the required approval /permission and claim back his toy.
