Actress Anushka Sharma, who was returning from Toronto after attending the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, got delayed at Mumbai airport Monday as the customs department was verifying her claimed accessories, officials said.
“She was not detained. She claimed that she was carrying some watches and jewellery, so we were verifying that. So, she was delayed at the airport,” a customs official confirmed to IANS.
“Anushka is not being interrogated by customs. She was carrying various accessories that were given by various brands to her. Anushka is only at the customs only to sign the formal paperwork for the borrowed accessories,” Anushka’s spokesperson told IANS.
