Writer and columnist Shobhaa De has slammed Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba, who was detained by the customs officials at Mumbai airport for carrying undeclared gold and diamond jewellery worth over Rs 50 lakh.
The writer wrote on her Twitter page that other actors should learn a big lesson from this incident. “Poor Minissha: Lamba race ki ghodi or lame duck? Warning to other Bollywood wannabes to leave those borrowed rocks at home. Dazzle wt yr talent (sic)," she wrote.
Minisha, who attended the premiere of Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris at the Cannes Film Festival, was detained at the Mumbai Airport when she returned home. She was questioned by the costume officials for carrying undeclared assets worth lakhs of rupees and later released after Anmol Jewellers, who loaned her the jewellery, provided the necessary documents to the authorities.
Besides being detained at the airport, one of her bags was stolen at Nice Airport, France. “Disaster has struck. A baggage of mine has been stolen at Nice Airport. I can't believe something like this has happened," Minissha posted on her Twitter page. “Even with two CCTV cameras right over the baggage, police or airline still won't confirm if it was 'stolen' or 'misplaced' (sic)," she added.
