Bipasha Basu detained by Mumbai customs department
After Minnisha Lamba, it was actor Bipasha Basu's turn to be intercepted by Customs officials at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Thursday.
Basu, who was returning from London, was asked to pay Rs 12,000 as duty after undeclared goods, including sun-glasses, shoes and perfumes worth Rs 65,000 was found in her bags.
“She was not detained. She was asked to pay duty and let off,” said Additional Commissioner, Customs, Mahendra Pal.
“She was going through the green channel. The value of the goods was not significant enough, so we just asked her to pay duty and let her go,” said a Customs official at the airport.
Last week, Lamba ran into trouble with the Customs after she was found to be carrying undeclared diamond jewellery worth Rs 31 lakh.
