Actress Rakul Preet Singh, who was recently seen in Venkatadri Express, was recently held and interrogated by the CISF at Delhi's domestic airport for carrying a bullet. She was to board Mumbai-bound flight at Delhi airport on Saturday. During the security check, the police found this metallic object in her laptop bag.
In a statement to a leading English daily, Rakul Preet Singh herself has confirmed the news about the incident in Delhi airport. She said that it was an 8 mm bullet, which is not found in India. The panicked actress called his father, who is an army officer, and asked him whether the bullet belonged to him, but he denied using such bullets in India.
By the time her father reached the airport, Rakul Preet Singh was even more confused when CISF personnel termed her act as an international crime. Later, she remembered that she used it during the shooting of one of her recent movie. When she told the same thing to the police, they asked her to send the DVD of the film.
"It's when I started really jogging my brain that I remembered that the bullet was from one of my shoots. In one of my Tamil films, I had used a revolver and it was a toy bullet from that. I had taken it as a keepsake and it had been in my bag for over eight months. But I was so shaken by then that I didn't know how to react. The bullet was all plastic inside. After that the cops let me go and told me to send them a DVD of the film in which I had used it," Times of India quotes her as narrating the incident.
