Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner Juhi Chawla is known to be active on social media and on Wednesday evening she took to Twitter to criticize the Airports Authority of India (AAI) after a bad experience at the airport.
The veteran Bollywood actress returned from Dubai after the completion of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 concluded on Tuesday with the final between the Indians of Mumbai and the capitals of Delhi.
She found herself stranded with other passengers in the health check queue for more than two hours on her return from Dubai and decided to educate authorities about the bad arrangement.

Kolkata Knight Riders failed to qualify for the IPL 2020 playoffs. While the likes of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine failed to shoot, youngster Shubman Gill was in the spotlight after his prolific show . Former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull had said it was the best way to gain a foothold in the IPL and become the captain of an IPL franchise over the next two years.
Meanwhile, for those traveling to India from overseas, the Department of Health and Family Welfare has removed the need for quarantine – whether institutional or domestic – on condition that these passengers submit a negative Covid-19 certificate from an RT-PCR test performed within 72 hours of undertaking the trip. This is part of the new guidelines for international arrivals released on Thursday by the Union government.
