    Amrita Arora has alleged racial discrimination from the Lufthansa Airlines staff after her flight got held up at Sofia Airport for almost 16 hours.

    Says Amrita, "I was returning from Bulgaria after shooting a song for Hriday Shetty's Godfather. I took the 5 am connecting flight via Frankfurt to Mumbai. The connecting flight to Mumbai was at 1.45 pm, but we were later told that the flight had been indefinitely delayed. From then on, the nightmare started..."

    According to Amrita, the Lufthansa Airlines staff at the airport were very arrogant and not cordial. On the other hand, the white passengers were not only treated differently, but the staff was also polite with them. Infuriated by the whole episode, she registered a complaint there.

    Adds Amrita, "Most airlines provide rooms for passengers if a flight is delayed for more than eight hours. But they told us that no rooms were available."

    However, according to the airport sources, there was a bomb scare at the Sofia airport just before Amrita's arrival, hence they were over cautious. All the passengers were asked to take off their socks and shoes and were not allowed to carry anything in their handbags, except for their passport and documents.
