Ranbir Kapoor
Mumbai, May 4: Bollywood superstar Ranbir Kapoor was detained in Mumbai airport on Saturday, May 4. The 30-year-old actor was grilled for 40 minutes and later was let off by the custom officials.

However, the actor was asked to pay a fine of Rs 60,000. Customs Deputy Commissioner, Sameer Wankhede was quoted as saying, "The actor was intercepted when he was passing through a passage, which is strictly allowed to be used only by officials and airport staff."

"The actor's luggage was then checked when he was found with the branded goods such as perfumes, clothes and footwears worth about Rs 1 lakh which he should have declared before customs officials at the Red Channel," added the officer.

Passengers carrying goods or items above the permitted customs limits should go through the Red Channel after paying the customs duty. Another officer said, the actor was then taken aside for an enquiry by the authorities. He seemed to be unaware about the customs rules and regulations.

Earlier many other Bollywood celebrities such as -- Bipasha Basu, Minissha Lamba, singer Mika Singh, Mallika Sherawat's brother Vikram Lamba and many other were also detained and had paid huge fine to the custom.
