The actress who was in Dubai last week after arriving at the airport was told to "shut up and sit (down)", and she was threatened with deportment by an officer after she was asked for her lodging details.
"Since I didn't remember my hotel-booking reference details, I asked an individual waiting for me outside the airport for the details. When I tried showing the details on my phone, the officer blew his top off and started to yell," she said.
After telling the officer to calm down the officer in turn asked her to shut up or get deported. When the actress tried to argue the officer snatched away her passport and told her to go and sit on a nearby chair.
"He kept gesticulating and threatening me," she said.
The senior official however gave Lamba her passport back later.
"When I return to Mumbai I will take this matter up with the authorities," said Lamba, adding in gag, "This has not been a good year for me at airports. Maybe I should travel by trains, until an astrologer says otherwise."
