Bengali actor Rituparna Sengupta Saturday said she was detained for five hours at the Toronto airport allegedly for not carrying valid visa.

Sengupta,who was on her way to attend the premiere of Bengali film Mukti in Toronto,was allowed into the country after Indian embassy intervened.“I went through a big trauma as the Toronto airport authorities were denying me entry yesterday,” Sengupta said over the phone. She said she was interrogated for five hours despite possessing a B1 visa valid till 2015.

She said she had mistakenly applied for a fresh visa despite having one already which landed her in trouble with the airport authorities. “They kept grilling me on why I had applied again despite already having a valid visa. They refused to listen to my explanation and kept asking whether I would work in Canada on this trip,” the 41-year-old actor said.
