Top Bollywood Producer’s Airport Detention
Ekta Kapoor, the Czarina of Indian TV soaps and a successful movie producer, became the latest in a line of Bollywood celebs named and shamed for evading the payment of customs duty. On her way back from Bangkok she was caught carrying undeclared goods at Mumbai airport, and released only after she paid the duty as well as a fine.
Ekta joins actresses Anushka Sharma, Bipasha Basu, Minissha Lamba – all of whom were detained and/or fined for carrying excess baggage or undeclared items and not paying the required duty.
So has Bollywood learnt its lesson from all these incidents? We’ll just have to wait and watch!
