Akshay Kumar has reacted to news about breaking lockdown rules after reports recently suggested he took a trip from Mumbai to Nashik in a helicopter.
The Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal had ordered a probe into the actor’s air travel earlier this week. Sources revealed that he flew to Nashik with special permission to see a doctor.
Bhujbal told Hindustan Times, “I had said in the morning that I would check into the incident and how he got permission to fly and stay. Later, the district collector informed me that the actor had paid a visit to one Dr Ashraf in Trimbakeshwar. The Nashik police commissioner had called on him there and the escort, about which complaints were received, was for the commissioner. As far as the flying permission is concerned, the flight originated from Mumbai and it needs to be checked into by the authorities there. For us [the Nashik district administration], the chapter is closed now.”
Meanwhile, Kumar’s team told the publication, “Akshay had travelled there for health reasons to meet Dr Ashraf, and he had all the required permissions for the same.”
