Anuskha Sharma stopped by Customs at Mumbai airport

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was stopped by Customs officials at the international airport here on Monday for carrying gold, diamond-studded jewellery and other belongings which may be unaccounted for.

Valuable baggage

The 23-year-old actress was returning from the IIFA Awards ceremony in Toronto and landed at the airport at 2.30 p.m. from Toronto via Singapore.

While checking her baggage, gold and diamond-studded jewellery worth Rs. 20 lakh to 40 lakh were found, the official said, adding that the actor claimed she had taken the valuables from India while going abroad and had declared the goods at the time and hence need not pay the duty.

“We are verifying the claims made by the actress,” the Customs official said.

The Band Baaja Baaraat star received the Best Actress award at the IIFA ceremony.

Meanwhile, Anushka's spokesperson said she was carrying accessories that were given to her by various brands.

“Borrowed accessories”

“She is at Customs only to sign the formal paperwork for the borrowed accessories,” the spokesperson said. “She will be out soon. The concerned brands would produce the documents (confirming ownership of the jewellery) and collect the valuables from the Customs. It is not her personal stuff.” – PTI
