Just on the heels of Minissha Lamba being detained at the Mumbai airport for carrying undeclared jewellery amounting to Rs.50 lakhs, Bipasha Basu was detained at the Mumbai International Airport briefly for carrying unaccounted cash and jewellery. Reports say that she has accepted that she forgot to declare the jewellery and was let off after paying the customs duty. Bipasha, who returned to Mumbai after shooting Players in London, was detained by the Mumbai airport authorities for carrying undeclared goods. Unlike Minissha, who was freed after a jewellery store proved that the assets belonged to them, Bipasha ended up paying the amount due after hours of interrogation. Bipasha Basu also issued a statement saying: “It was just a routine check up at the airport and many others were being checked as well. All that I have in my bags is the clothes that I had shopped for and then hence had excess baggage for which I paid approximately Rs 12,000 as taxes. I think the customs team is doing an excellent job.’
The customs officials said that the actress was very co-operative during the interrogation and was let off after paying the required duty. No fine or penalty was imposed on her. God knows what’s wrong with these Bolly beauties. Is this a new medium to come into spotlight ?
