Super star Shahrukh Khan was recently halted and interrogated by custom authorities at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport while returning from London on Thursday. Shahrukh was on a family holiday to Holland and London. On his way back home, Shahrukh was carrying 20 bags.
Therefore, the custom officials at airport interrogated him, while his family was allowed to go. The interrogation was conducted by a team of deputy collector, Customs, Sameer Wankhede. Shahrukh had to pay a duty of approximately Rs 1.5 lakh.
Customs commissioner, P M Govande confirms Mid Day, "Yes, he was interrogated but it is a routine thing. Whenever people bring stuff they have to pay duty on it. It was nearly R 1.5 lakh and the interrogation took time because he was carrying a lot of stuff."
Eyewitness from the airport reported that Khan was treated equally as any other passenger. The actor was not even allowed to take a phone call.
