Akshay Kumar was recently detained at the ‘London Heathrow airport’ on Wednesday afternoon by the immigration authorities for over an hour-and-a-half. According to a report, Akshay who arrived in London for the shoot of his upcoming film ‘Rustom‘, was made to wait for over an hour-and-a-half at the airport and had to sit in the general holding area where detained passengers are made to wait.
The airport officials informed Akshay that according to the rules a Canadian national can visit the UK as a tourist, without a visa. However, when asked about the purpose of this visit, Akshay disclosed that it was for a film shoot, which made a visa stamp necessary. And hence he was detained. At one point, he requested to be allowed to sit in a private area. His request was declined by the authorities who told him that there was no such designated area. Akshay however, denied the incident saying he had a valid visa and was out of the airport quickly.
