Lucknow: Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan faced an embarrassing situation at the airport here today when he was asked to leave the VIP lounge.
The 42-year-old actor, who was in the city for the shooting of Tigmanshu Dhulia`s upcoming directorial `Bullet Raja`, was on his way to Delhi when he reached the Chaudhary Charan Singh airport and entered the VIP lounge, airport sources said.
An attendant informed Saif that only those who figured in a list authorised by the government could utilise the VIP lounge, and hence he should leave the place, they said.
Saif had a talk with airport staff following which he left the lounge and boarded his flight to Delhi, sources said.
The administration as well as the airport security officials denied that there was any tiff between the actor and the staff.
