Moscow: Actor and Bigg Boss 12 contestant Karanvir Bohra lived every traveller's worst nightmare when he was detained at Moscow International Airport. The actor was apparently travelling with a damaged passport. The Naagin actor flew to Moscow on Tuesday afternoon for the MacCoffee Bollywood Film Festival.

Bohra had to wait for over nine hours at the airport after the Russian immigration officials found that his passport was damaged. The actor and his wife took to Twitter to lash out at the authorities. His wife, Teejay wrote, "Indian authorities need to resolve these legal issues before a citizen to leaves India. Other countries are often strict with security protocols. What is one supposed to do after landing in a foreign country?"



Later, the actor was issued a temporary passport and visa. Thanking Minister of External Affairs of India Sushma Swaraj and Indian Embassy Karanvir shared the news with his fans on Twitter. In the video, he said, "Special thanks to Sushma Swaraj and all the officials for the prompt actions taken to help me. I have been given a temporary passport and visa for my stay. I am extremely happy to be in Russia for attending a festival that celebrates and honours Indian films," he added.
