There have been some speculations and rumours going on with Akshay Kumar’s recent incident at Heathrow Airport. According to PTI, Akshay Kumar was never detained by the airport authority, he was just delayed for some time for a routine document checks.
To clear the air, the UK Home Office has released the official statement:
“Border Force officers routinely carry out further checks on passengers to ensure they are satisfied that person has the documentation needed to enter the UK. There were no problems with Mr Kumar’s documentation.”
A source who was present at the airport said, “We all know that no one can enter or even work in UK without the right permit and there was no exception in the case of Akshay Kumar who travelled to UK with all the correct documents. However the immigration team at Heathrow Airport asked him to wait to double check a few details. Yes, the process took slightly longer than expected but you have to be patient with these things. The team was very sincere and profusely apologised to Akshay Kumar for the delay and inconvenience caused so not sure why the media are sensationalising this!”
