Actors Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra who were to catch an Air India flight from a terminal at the Indira Gandhi International Airport last night were offloaded by the officials. The officials took this decision because the two stars allegedly indulged in promotions of their upcoming movie ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ at the airport premises.
This promotional stint by them delayed their scheduled flight.
Officials said the incident was reported late last night after both the actors reached the airport and got their boarding passes to fly to Mumbai in the Air India flight number AI-317.
Post the security check, the duo were seen mingling with fans in the duty-free area of the airport to promote their upcoming film "Baar Baar Dekho", the officials said.
They said both the actors were asked by airport officials to board the flight scheduled for 9:40 PM but they kept delaying the flight.
Finally, sources said, the airline decided to offload them at about 10:45 PM as other passengers complained about the delay in departure.
However, Air India officials said the Bollywood actors were not deplaned, as they were issued boarding passes but "they chose not to travel as part of their own decision".
