Actor Karanvir Bohra, who participated in the 12th season of Bigg Boss, tweeted on Wednesday that he has been restrained at the Moscow airport for passport damage.
The 36-year-old actor, who toured to Moscow to be part of the MacCoffee Bollywood Film Festival, wrote on Twitter: “So bummed. Waiting at the Moscow airport because my passport is a little damaged. They are contemplating to deport me back to India. Indian Embassy Moscow, wish you would have told me that prior to issuing me the visa.” Karanvir’s tweet drew a swift response from the Indian Embassy in Moscow, who wrote: “Embassy officials are in touch with Russian authorities regarding the issue.”
Karanvir has been at the Moscow airport for several hours and the Russian and the Indian embassies are allegedly trying their best to get the problem sorted. Also, according to a source, the damage wasn’t caught at the Indian airport. “Hence, after Karanvir reached Moscow, it was noticed by the Russian colonization officials. While Karanvir has been at the airport for the last four hours, we hear that the Russian embassy, the Indian embassy and a lot of other people are working towards getting the issue sorted and having Karanvir enter the country and attend the festival he was originally there for,” said a close source from media house.
We hope that ‘Indian Embassy Moscow’ will do something for the actor’s rescue.
On the work front, Karanvir is looking forward to the release of his film Hume Tumse Pyar Kitna, expected to release later this year.
