Saif Ali Khan says reports of him getting into the fight at Lucknow airport are completely untrue
Upala KBR (DNA; March 24, 2013)
Saif Ali Khan is irritated with media reports about his alleged altercation with Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at Lucknow’s Chowdhary Charan Singh airport.
The reports suggested that the actor-producer was involved in a fight with security personnel at the airport when he was asked to vacate the VIP lounge. Saif is currently shooting in Lucknow for Bullet Raja and was enroute Delhi on Friday morning. According to the rumours, he was sitting at the VIP lounge when a CISF personnel approached him and asked him to leave as only dignitaries and those authorised by the government occupy that lounge. It is alleged that the actor refused to leave and a verbal pow wow broke out between the two. The situation was brought into control when some senior officials intervened.
Saif is aghast at the rumours. He fumes, “All these rumours are fabricated! I came to the airport and checked in Jet Airways. The airlines staff directed me to a lounge which was completely empty. I was sitting in the lounge, reading a book, when two guys from the airline came and told me I should sit somewhere else as the lounge was only for VIP’s authorised by the government. I smiled and left immediately. I went and sat in one of the public areas outside and I think the airport authorities got worried on seeing me seated there. Maybe they thought I was offended. More >
