Indian actress stuck at BIA

Seems like airport trouble for our B-Town heroines is lasting forever. After Minissha Lamba, Bipasha Basu and Anushka Sharma, now it's Celina Jaitly.
 
Thankfully, she didn't have any problems with the customs but had a more horrible experience while travelling from Maldives to Mumbai.

The actress was in Maldives shooting for a South flick titled Shrimati. She had a stopover in Colombo from where she was to board a connecting flight back to Mumbai.

To her dismay, her flight was inordinately delayed and as a result, she ended up spending 11 hours at the airport!

At the terminal, Celina was holed up in a claustrophobic small room with no windows along with her staff members, who were accompanying her.

Says the starlet, "It was very frightening for me to be a part of the situation." As she didn't have a Sri Lankan visa, the authorities did not allow her to step out.

She and her staff members had to literally squeeze themselves in the den. They were not even allowed to leave the room that was guarded by the airport security till they were to report for their flight to Mumbai.

After the harrowing journey the actress was thankful and happy to just be back to the city.  She adds, "The good thing is we are back and with a lesson never ever get stuck in such a situation!"

    A den in the Colombo airport is better than what the Indians offer in their waiting lounges of any of their Airports. Aney pow.

    Totally agree with you Malkanthi, forget about stuck in a small room with other staff members for 11 hours can you do even 4 hours , it was a night mare..........

    Samba Tuesday, 05 July 2011 07:40 AM

    munchii Tuesday, 05 July 2011 07:42 AM

    brenlover Wednesday, 06 July 2011 03:01 AM

    SAME GOES TO INDIAN, MUCH WORST ...

    Dushantha Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:06 AM

    Why do not you at once say that you have been to Dubai, Heathrow, Bangkok. I have not been to Heathrow or Dubai. But I had a terrible experience in Delhi due to a delay even the Indians were shouting. I have been to Airports like Bandkok, Singapore, Doha, Hong Kong they are good but I have never seen or heard about live music, entertainment, or whatever you must be refering to. And finally ours is a well standard Airport and not a third grade one like you are talking about.

    brenlover Wednesday, 06 July 2011 03:02 AM

    VISA IS NOT ARRIVALL FOR INDIANS ANY MORE DUDE CHECK THE EMBASY NEWS FIRST...

    brenlover Wednesday, 06 July 2011 03:03 AM

    VIJAYA, go to New delhi and tell me the same thing back again..our entire airport in colombo is a DEN comparing to international airport in delhi...

    Sam Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:15 AM

    Since she is a so called bollywood actress, she could have easily paid sum money to stay in a room.

    Btw DM, why is this news?

    asanka Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:16 AM

    is this a news to be reported ?

    DAMITH Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:25 AM

    Appu Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:27 AM

    Hey Malkanthi,,,,, Think before you write. Think before you press "Send".

    me Tuesday, 05 July 2011 08:43 AM

    some are saying this story is useless and not newsworthy but seems to be the number of readers are drastically going up.........thank DM for having such type of news without having political news al the time.....

    Paul Tuesday, 05 July 2011 09:22 AM

    Flight delay not unusual.But why a claustophobic room?

    Hatz Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:30 AM

    I Hussein Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:36 AM

    Flight delay is a nightmare.
    Whats the big deal with this actress. There maybe 100 others too waiting for the flight.
    By the way never heard of this name.

    malkanthi Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:50 AM

    If you are stuck at an airport like heathrow, bangkok, dubai is much better than 11hrs at katuranayake airport with nothing to see around.

    Kuriosity Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:54 AM

    visa's are on arrival and she could have gone out if she really wanted to. this is just a cheap publicity stunt

    Mahmood Ashraf Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:00 AM

    on arrival visas to sl! for indians! and thats the law of the country they have to respect the sovereignty of the country

    KIRI PUTHA Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:56 AM

    what a joking gossip. Not suitable for DM online which we believe as a good professional news site.

    cracko Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:02 AM

    We are Sri Lanka. Haven't you heard the slogan? Miracle of Asia! Only politicos can have good lives. We, the people, must keep mum and have what we get.

    Piyal Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:58 AM

    Valkanthy; stop bashing srilanka.
    Your are free to lick boots of indians or other white masters.
    But do not try to down grade srilanka.

    Anushka Tuesday, 05 July 2011 05:59 AM

    If you're confined to a room, you're not going to get anything to see around whether you're in BIA or Bangkok or wherever

    Manmohan Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:06 AM

    who cares... there are people suffer without basic needs in mumbai .. this is just nothing !

    rajith Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:09 AM

    our airport is 1000 times better than indian airports. why the complain? she could have easily got a day room for a small fee which is a luxury room compared to what they live in. GET REAL LADY!!!

    watchman Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:11 AM

    Do you step in to airport to just look around, This is not a big deal. Its a normal scenario & this is not a news after all.

    Rajeev Patnaik Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:13 AM

    This is not a news to be published.Many people have such type of experience.She is not the exceptional in all fronts.

    DCOL Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:22 AM

    An Actress at her calibre travelling in Economy class? you must be joking !..If she is in Business class then she is automatically entitle for the business class lounge.

    This is cheap media tactics! And if they knew flights are 11 hours late, then with on arrival visa, she could get into the near by hotels and pamper in swimming pool...

    Lokka Tuesday, 05 July 2011 06:23 AM

    How is this....
