Air India stops TV actor Karanvir Bohra from flying to Nepal

In a recently held incident, TV actor Karanvir Bohra, was not allowed to fly to Nepal. As per his status post on social media, Air India refused his journey since he did not have valid documents. It seems as though the actor was not aware of the necessary documents needed to travel to Nepal by air.

Agitated Bohra took to Twitter to share the angst with a message that read, "Deported at Delhi airport on my way to #nepal.trvlng wid #adhaarcar not allowed

Nepal gov alows (PP,voters ID & Adhaar by road,by air only PP & VI)Then,Y did @airindiain in Mumbai let me fly with my Adhaar?Y didn't they stop me there? #indianembassy @DrSJaishankar @IndiaInNepal."

While many fans supported him, Air India also sent him a reply asking to check the information (necessary documents needed to fly to Nepal) on their website. Many fans also pointed to the actor on the usage of term "deported". He was technically not "deported". He was taking an Air India flight from Mumbai to Nepal which had a halt in Delhi and he was technically not allowed to proceed any further than Delhi. 

Karan replied back to the tweet but it was clear that he was travelling only with Aadhaar card as the document and not the passport.

His reply to them reads, "Thank u 4 this link,& I believe not only 4 the passengers,its 4the officials2, how could they allow me to travel on an invalid document? If I was told in Mumbai itself I wud have arranged it immed & not make my guy fly down2 Delhi to hand me the passport."

He was traveling to Nepal to shoot for a zee5 show and now will join the crew a day later. He stayed put in Delhi while someone from his staff had to fly from Mumbai to Delhi to hand him his passport.  

Well, the trip certainly did not start on a good note for Bohra, but it is clear that one needs to use the basic common sense to check the necessary documents needed during the 'international' travel.

Afterall, there is a reason for Google and the internet to exist.
