MUMBAI: Reportedly, Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan lost his cool and broke into an argument at the Lucknow Airport, when the star was not allowed to be seated in the VIP waiting lounge.
The news is that the ‘Race 2’ star was at the Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport of Lucknow where he had a heated argument with the airport authorities. Apparently, Saif Ali Khan wanted to be seated at the VIP lounge (meant strictly for senior politicians) till his evening flight to Mumbai would be ready.
We hear, another reason why the Authorities denied access to the actor was that Saif held an executive class boarding pass according to which he was not authorised to sit in the VIP lounge.
The issue heated up when the authorities objected to Saif’s presence in the VIP lounge and requested him to sit outside with regular passengers. Apparently, an irritated Saif lost his cool and broke into an argument with the staff. Says a source, “Saif felt there would be security hassles for him in the general lounge.”
The Nawab of Pataudi demanded to speak to the General Manager of the airport. But, we hear that by the time the GM arrived to handle the situation, an angry Saif had stormed out of the VIP lounge. Later the General Manager sat with the actor in the regular lounge until he boarded the flight to Mumbai.
In the past, actor Abhishek Bachchan too has been denied access to the VIP lounge meant for senior politicians. This is the second time Saif Ali Khan has been caught in such a scuffle, including the fight at Taj hotel last year.
