Flash- Bipasha detained at Mumbai airport, pays Rs.12,000

Flash- Bipasha detained at Mumbai airport, pays Rs.12,000Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu was Thursday checked at the Mumbai international airport for "excess baggage" following which she paid the required tax and was immediately cleared. 

Confirming the development, Bipasha, who was returning from London, said that she had gone overboard with her shopping and hence had to pay tax on the excess items she was carrying. 

"It was just a routine check at the airport and many others were being checked as well. I paid Rs.12,000 as tax against some personal goods. I think the customs team is doing an excellent job," said Bipasha in an official statement. 

She, however, refused to reveal the items for which she had to pay tax, saying they were for her personal use. 

On May 18 another Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba was detained at the Mumbai international airport for 16 hours by the customs department for carrying undeclared jewellery worth nearly Rs.50 lakh. 

Lamba was intercepted by the customs officials while she was crossing the green channel at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport here. She was reportedly returning after marking her presence at the Cannes International Films Festival.
