Richa Chadda was recently stopped and interrogated at the New Delhi airport while she was en route to Mumbai. Security and airport officials found something suspicious in her luggage. It later turned out that the powder they found suspicious was part of the Ayurveda beauty and skincare products the actress uses.
Chadda has been using the traditional method of skincare over the past six months. She follows the skincare ritual daily and carries the powder while travelling. A source close to the 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' and 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' actress said she was questioned for nearly two hours before she was allowed to go.
Confirming it, Chadda said in a statement: “I am a big believer in Ayurveda and was recently carrying my Ayurvedic supplements to Mumbai. However, the security found the powders suspicious. I didn’t want them to confiscate my Ayurvedic things because they are tough to procure... and are made for me personally.
“I had to convince them for two hours that it’s nothing wrong or suspicious. I know they are doing their job and hence I was more than willing to co-operate. Thankfully I didn’t miss my flight.”
