Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty when arrived at the Sydney airport, her cabin luggage was checked by a female officer who claimed that her luggage was "oversized." Shilpa was asked to go to another counter where oversized luggages are checked. According to Shilpa, here she met a polite lady officer who said that her luggage was not oversized and she had to go back and checked again manually. By that time it was only five minutes left for the counter to be closed. She had faced some inconveniences in that counter too.
On an instagram post, Shilpa said that she had to face all those inconveniences all because she is been "brown."
